  1. Guys, what's the name of the song that plays the first time the 918 is displayed in the video? That's an amazing tune.

    It's not that anyone needs to prove electric cars don't suck, it's more fundamental than that. It's proving that electric powered cars are more environmentally friendly.

    More than 2/3rds of electricity comes from burning fossil fuels such as coal. People assume that this is cleaner energy when it isn't. Then you have to take into account the costs of running an electric powered vehicle and it's clear who the winners are, the electricity companies and the politicians implementing laws based on consumer ignorance thinking that electricity is somehow created by pixies running on treadmills.

    All this environmental legislation hasn't reduced pollution, it's moved it to China along with our jobs.

  4. Can someone please tell me name of the background song at 1:30 onwards.. Kind Regards

    What a beautiful car. This and P1 are my two fav hybrids. I don't really like the LaFerarri much. As for non-hybrids it's Koenigsegg One:1.

    This is the least awkward I've ever seen Spinelli. Stop letting him do interviews, keep him on these kinds of runs. Good job Mike.

    Does it not worry y'all to be driving cars that are worth more than you are? Even if you do have a hell of an insurance policy (which I'm sure you do).

  19. Can somebody plz tell me what song this is at the beginning of this clip???
