Mustang Launch

Sure you've watched cars pull massive wheelies when they launch on a drag strip, but how many do you see get up in the wheelie bars at the 1/8th mile!!  I think this car is making a bit of boost about 700 feet out!

Even Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson yelling POWER might say, oh, that's a bit much maybe.
