I know this is blasphemy ... but 800+ hp in a car like this just seems to be "nuts" specially under wet conditions.

I wonder how the passenger felt ... she is pretty cocky looking giving her thumbs up before the crash.

My two cents ...

Notice what tires are on it? Of course depending on how it happened, it might not matter.

If they had more horsepower on tap, they probably could have pulled out of it.

Anything less than 1,000 HP in a 2,000 pound car is just asking for trouble.

Hey,

I could do that with just 450 horsepower.

I don't think "800 HP" has anything to do with it.
Those tires, those conditions...yikes.

Although it says it is longer there is nothing beyond the 1:20 point.

A post on CC said their FB blamed the accident on tire blowout followed by spin?? I could not confirm.
