so much down force you could drive it upside down in a tunnel at 150 mph

There is a serious serious flaw in it. It cannot take slow corners as it has zero traction at low speeds [as Fifth Gear and Top Gear have both found out] and cannot clear a speed bump [not really a road going car imo if you can't take a city corner without crashing nor clear a simple speed bump] and is more unreliable than any other car ever made.

In 4 of the largest "test drives" it has had [Press Launch, Goodwood Festival of Speed, Fifth Gear, Top Gear] the front suspension failed [resulting in a crash into a ditch, Press Launch], throttle being stuck at WOT [Goodwood Festival of Speed and Fifth Gear], then at 150mph it ignited into a fireball [Fifth Gear], the floor coming apart [Top Gear] and fuel delivery problems [Top Gear].

Not exactly worth the money imo.
