The model shown is the "entry" level model - it's pretty much the one I have (except mine has nicer looking "cycle" wings and a decent paint job). As many people have said in the other threads - this is not a representative vehicle for demonstrating what it can do. I have one of these and drive it every day. I take people out for rides and when I stomp on the loud pedal or the brake, the response is usually "F(*&!!", "Oh my $&$!!!" or "SH*&!!!". And people usually wet themselves when I take a corner posted "10" at 35mph. It can *sustain* well over 1G lateral acceleration. As far as I am aware, the superlight R500 still holds the 0-100mph-0 record for *ANY* production road car. It smokes Porsches, Corvettes, Ferraris, Vipers and just about anything else. The only thing the Seven doesn't have is flat out speed. Even the R500 tops out at about 140mph or so. The Seven isn't about speed - it's about getting there. I must get my act together and submit an R500 data sheet. It would shut the critics up.
