I believe these are available for promotional purposes.
A pro racer drives it while u're sitting in it feeling those massive Gs .

Like Nitrous said, they have these cars for promotional runs and it just happened that I had a Press Penthouse ticket for the event and they had the 2 seater.. so paid $800 and took the ride.

I felt as if I lost 2kgs after 2 laps... Was some experience .. imagine 4+g's in a car.

and 120(MPH) = 193kmph true speed(GPS again) while sitting as front passenger in a Sonata V6 in the US
No offence sir, but u sat and drove a "sonata" amongst all the other cars in the us!!! That thing does not move... why a hyundai!!!

I used to laugh my @ss off on people who bought hyundai's and then showed off their trim levels.. like the sonata gold!!! why would a car need traction contol when it crawls

Just my 2 cents.

No offence sir, but you went to US without knowing english? I said front passenger. I did not drive anything there except for short spin in LA in a sentra.

Also I think you should loose weight, if a 236BHP sonata embera crawls.There were 4 of us in the car and at no moment it felt sluggish. Infact the acceleration was pretty good, better than what I have felt sitting in OHC here, and IMHO an OHC is a pretty fast car, not a crawler.

@srikantans04- The sera he has, might be an automatic. The auto's capable of only 145-150(Speedo) but accelerates quite well. I might be wrong, but the car felt like it had only 4 forward gears. That's such a pity as the engine's quite a gem.

205 on an Optra ?????? 195 on a accent crdi , I understand PSI mapped ones touch 190 + but stock ones doing 195 ?

Optra 1.8 , I have ripped my heart out with plenty of road left , wouldnt cross 190 mark 205 is a bit hard to believe 195 .?????

Dude please no fake stories I have a tuned 1.7Td which has K&N filter does 0-100 in around 16-17 secs .. Maxxes out at 165 , without K&N its 155 . And Why are people over here exaggerating , I read optra 1.8 doing 205 , Accent CRDI doing 195 (not that big a lie) , now Sienna doing 180 ?

that is a modest claim...but i would not go around calling people names.....especially if i was driving a tuned....diesel!!!!!

16 secs to 100 is not quick.......

i'd suggest that you calm down a tad......your k&n does not improve your gearing in any way........it just gets you there a bit quicker...

Wow some of you guys are fast!! The fastest I have been is a passenger in an Infiniti G35x at 120kmph or so on highway 401 in Toronto. Any faster and the cops would have pulled us over. No use of the 280horses lol.
