Considering the locale, that thing is very much out of place!

Out of place

Yep. Upon entering the lot, I did a double take and said I have got to get this shot.

When I click on that link nothing happens, I just get an empty browser window (Mac OSX, Internet Explorer).

How ironic! ;-)

Usual Mac unfriendly site. Either Control click or right Click and select download. It's an avi so you may need a player like MPlayer OS X (available from VersionTracker).

Worked fine on my Mac, Boyd, with Windows Media Player 7.

Actually, the car in the clip probably belongs to the head of Sav-On Corp, who says they need to emulate the "Wal-Mart" model to stay competitive. That's corporate-speak for "lower wages and eliminate health care." All the while flying an American flag over their stores. Am I bitter? No, I just have to drive by the striking grocery store clerks everyday, which reminds me of the "Wal-Martization" of our country.

Hey, I didn't post the clip.

Are you sure it was legit? An MR2, or Fiero can be made to look just like the lambos. It just doesn't look right to me, it's too short, and a bit boxy to be a lambo...

Additional 360 footage

Andrew I wondered the same thing and took a closer look. It had all the emblems and the interior looked authentic. If it's a kit, it's a good one. This is additional footage with a 360 shot.

kit car for sure

I was just looking at these and hummer kits last week.

It's a kit on a Fiero chassis. (which I wouldn't mind having BTW).

As someone mentioned, you can tell by the wheel base hands down. Also, when they start it up, you would be able to tell also <;~)
