What an idiot. I've raced on front line NASCAR tracks, and can not even imagine trying to drive 225 on them, let alone on public streets. 165 on Daytona's backstretch was enough for me. At my age now, I wouldn't even try that: responses are too slow.

Stupid car doing less then a km per liter at top speed. Empty in 12 minutes which gives a 80 KM range.

Just the kind of car an idiot who would do 225 MPH on a public road would buy.

I'd do it if I could get away with it. In a heartbeat.
