if i was asked him who buys cars like this one of the many people are hitting the track with them out of the glove scalia says many people love to race on weekends the number of racing advances grown at eighty five percent of the people who buy a g t three r. is wanted for motor sports not transport as most will have many cars and just take this one on the track he says there are many people like that and their numbers are rising d.'s in their field development money off of it that's the closest he's going to use it as a means of transport just here in the grand prix circuit. yeah. this car has racing in its d.n.a. he says in here in the grand prix stretch of the nerve you can really put it through his paces. to get. he hits a hundred kilometers an hour in just three point two seconds acceleration tops out at three hundred twelve electronics are supposed to help with control. that's where
1:35 am
