Yea this is what you see at SEMA and PRI, extreme outrageous cars the are built to show off a company's product. Thats cool if it has a quad rotor like the 787B. When I was working with Grand-Am our RX-8 had a 20B (3 rotor) and N/A that little motor made some damn good power.

Look at the website off the side of the stage banner in the background and it explains why the car looks the way it does.

The one unfortunate thing about more power - it only feels good for a short while, then you're used to it.
People run 7000 hp alcohol dragsters and to them it's like a drive to the grocery store.
Ease into it, and it'll be second nature soon enough.
