Drive it like you stole it, right? I think the driver of this all-electric NSX took that advice a little too seriously and did the entire Pikes Peak hill climb with the car alarm blaring. The annoying noise is a safety precaution to alert people to the coming of the NSX as otherwise there would be no audible warning that a 1,040 HP missile was coming their way. This hill climb special was built by ditching the NSX’s hybrid twin turbo v6 and instead placing one 260hp electric motor at each wheel. The result is a surreal moment when the car almost instantly disappears off the line without the ear-splitting cacophony associated with Pikes Peak cars. Haters gonna say it’s fake.
