My reaction to those videos was similar to when I saw the concept "unveiling" on the internet and again when I finally saw it in person at the Kansas City Car Show...........the hair on the back of my neck stood up, I felt goosebumps on my arms and my eyes "misted" a bit.
Exactly! I'm no professional race car driver, but I've been "around the block" a few times as the saying goes. The in car footage was astounding. I could actually "feel" the car being pushed through it's paces as if I was there controlling it, from a litteral hands on perspective. It handles all the forces of physics amazingly well. One can't fully appreciate whats going on there if you haven't done some competition racing or high speed driving. I am still all worked up from viewing the footage and my thoughts are pre-occupied with this car!.
