Way too fast for a street car. But you gotta love the design and engineering that goes into it.

Not if Tesla has anything to say about it http://www.carbuzz.com/news/2017/11/17/Tesla-Shatters-Minds-With-Surprise-Reveal-Of-Stupidly-Fast-Roadster-7742054/

7000 ft/lbs of torque at 0 rpm, about 1500 hp, 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, 0-100 mph in 4.2, and about 1/3 the price of the recip engine contenders. It's about as ridiculous as it gets.
The Twin Cam plays the symphony whilst my right foot conducts the orchestra. At 3800 rpm the Mad Pipe Organ joins in.
