We've driven early mules with nonspec engines, and unfinished prototypes, but up until now, we'd never strapped our test gear onto the car to find out what we all want to know: How fast is it?

That GT is insane.

But I'm just going to sulk that they put the GT3 behind the Ferrari, for some pretty flaky reasons.
