Sure there will be tons of people storing these away thinking they will be a collector's item some day. Kind of like the 78 black and silver pace car vettes. Making to many to be an instant collector like the 2006 era ford gt's that are $275-350k today!
    Theres no official press release but both will be flat plane crank. One will be flat plane with turbo over 800 HP and supposedly one thats hybrid thats over 1000 HP.

    It made me a Porsche fan. This video puts it in perspective. Can you hear any of the other cars? No!

    That is flat out awesome! Nearly as good as the V8 F1 cars I saw in 2012 at the U.S. Grand Prix in Austin. Shrieking 19,000 rpm beasts, is all one can say. I was at the Turn 11/12 hairpin and when the cars came down the straight and decelerated, it was like having someone shooting a short barrel 12 gauge right next to you...you FELT it and it literally overwhelmed your senses.
    Glorious.

    In the sake of stuff that sounds great. This was 2 years ago in Miami at the F1 experience. Supposedly F1 will be in Miami for 2021

    This was so loud that the camera actually fades out and starts to make a crackle noise. You get the hint, but I guess this is about 16,000 RPM.
