Japan has a 2012 Nissan GTR that hits 60 mph in 2.9 sec, and the Brabus Rocket Police car has a limited top speed of 220 mph... so no.

Looks ok, but lose the lights and go matte black, think Veyron SS. Finally Gallardo perfomance but the Gallardo has less hp and tq?? I wonder how they got @ 100hp and like 10 lb/ft torque over stock? A cpu upgrade, intake, and exhaust? Its nice to see an Audi finally able to play in the 200mph club. I wont be one bit surprised if all the aftermarket tuners make a good profit following this whole "tune it safe" crap. They are really using this as a commercial intended for all the real lawbreakers out there (mainly police, judges, & any middle eastern guy in the oil industry). They are the only people who can realistically afford this stuff AND drive it as reckless as they want to on public roads with no fear of losing their license. It must be nice.
