The rear tires grapple for traction and the engine playfully bounces off redline for a moment before the driver taps the steering-wheel mounted paddle shifter and the transmission slams into second.

 


0-60 passes in 4.3 seconds, and it's been reported that the car will run the quarter mile in 13 seconds flat. But Laguna…
