So it is a quite impressive car even if you just look at the stats. I’m just not the biggest fan of the body style as it looks like one that has been used by Tesla before. That and a certain star singer has one that I really have no respect for either.

I’ll stick with a Bugatti cause I don’t think those 20 or so MPH on the top end are going to concern me πŸ˜›
