    Just came across this. The sound. The raw torque. What a crazy-cool beast! I don't know if I would have gone for the pass on that Porsche.

    Got a cigarette? :)

    I had the pleasure to go for a drive after watching, and even driven far more gently, it was great to appreciate the sounds, and even response given all of the torque of the non-LM version of the Boxer. Those LM cars have a lot of very cool hardware in the engine bay to help it take the stress of racing. I recall very nice cooling radiators. Would be a real treat to drive one if only for a couple of blocks or corners.:rolleyes:

    Any ideas on top speed on the main straight? I'm guessing 140??
