The range of performance is too great.
It's not that it's exactly worthless... but it is a car with an identity crisis
. It's trying to be the best of both worlds and is accomplishing it in merely "cool" ways that isn't realistic in cost and needs of the driver.
So what are they trying to accomplish?
Giving a soccer mom the ability to wrap their car around a tree?
Or giving the Drag-racer the ability to take his drag car out for groceries?
If you want a 1400 hp track beast, great. But 1400 hp for a DD is just plain ridiculous... If I want a beast for the track, I'll build one for *probably* far less than this would cost. As a DD, I'd argue that sub600 hp is PLENTY.
It's like building a howitzer that also shoots BBs just so you can use it around the house. :P
