I was reading in Wikipedia that at the end of this run he went to get out and realized that he was still traveling at 70 MPH. Just a very cool video. You right the production of the short film adds to the total experience.

Top Gear is a great show. One of my favorite net clips was the episode when they featured the Ariel Atom. If you haven't seen it...here it is.

Hehe, love the British. Great show, I wish I caught it more often.

Of course every time I hear that music all I can think of is Star Wars Kid:

the Bugatti Veyron costs over 1 million dollars. I doubt even Nate could afford that!

If I could afford that car I would probably kill myself in a fireball of a wreck and it would be oh so worth it.

It would be a wonderful way to go. That and being sexed to death by beautiful women.

how about sexed to death while going 200 mph in a Veyron while being shot at by an attack helicopter and hurtling off a cliff? That would be awesome.
