I saw this car in rosamund california last summer at sevenstock 15/mazfest 2012. It's like someone is drumming on your chest when they rev the engine. It sounded incredible.

I just looked it up and it's actually a 900 horsepower engine, that was limited to 700 hp during the race for longevity.

Yes, 900 horsepower from a 2.6 liter engine NATURALLY ASPIRATED. It's pretty astounding.
F1 engines have a tiny stroke and enormous bore.. that is why they can rev so high.
