If a car does manage to accelerate so violently that the front wheel lift off the ground a few things happen that aren't happening in this photo:

  • The rear tires press down hard onto the pavement. Daylight cannot be seen in between the tread.
  • The front suspension hangs low and relaxed, unlike the loaded suspension pictured.
  • The bottoms of the front tires don't pixelate for no reason. 
  • Race tires are used. Street tires don't have nearly enough grip to do this. 
  • The sidewalls of the rear tires get severely stressed.
  • Smoke is generated.

The sad thing is that the Shelby 1000 could probably actually do this, but the people at Shelby were too lazy to actually make it happen. LAME!
