The car isn't even going fast in any portion of the video. The best part is at the very end when you can hear the exhaust - which did sound nice.

Not sure how many of you are into bikes, but this reminds me of a Ducati video - aka, it's more about style and looking cool than what the bike, or in this case the car, can actually do.

I am not hating on Ducati - I have one and have owned another one.

To me though, you use things like music and panning shots to "spice up" a car that needs help looking and sounding good. The M235 racing car should not fit that definition.

If it were me making this video, I would have had 0 music, and shown the car busting its respective balls around corners and going down the straights at 155 MPH. Just my $.02

EDIT - just watched it again, and my god, this might as well be an advertising video for Puma and Castrol too. Count the times you see the logos - ///MMMMMMMMMMMMarketjng at its best
