    Street legal in a third world country. In Ca., that thing would be on the back of a tow rig so fast.............

    The car is licensed here in California. In California, new cars have bi-annual smog inspections so if you modify the engine, it is likely to fail the inspection and you won't be able to drive it on the street. There are some exempt engine modifications (ex. after-cat mufflers - big deal) but none that will allow you to add 1350 hp to a new car.

    Not to mention bumper problems and all kinds of other equipment violations.

    We get this a lot. A police officer picking at his nose while trying to figure out what to charge me with. Notice the hopeful anticipation of us on the right. We're rooting for him and offer suggestions but unfortunately, the California Department of Motor Vehicles did not anticipate such a vehicle so he's out of luck. Hmmm, the car has two engines making the car a hybrid so maybe we can drive in the commuter lanes along with the Toyota Priuses.

    Yeah, right. Like the officer doesn't carry a CVC Qwik-Code. Me must've been stopped by Southern Pacific Railroad cops....
