I take it these were three sales reps taking the R out for a short "joy" ride. I like the comment about NOT being worth $50,000? This must have been the first R on the lot.
As far damaging the car, that's how the R is supposed to be driven. If he sped, that was wrong. But he did nothing to hurt the car. To qualify that, redlining before the engine is broken-in is bad. If I ever bought a performance car, you better believe I'd floor the crap out of it to make sure I knew what I was buying. But after that test drive I'd select another car with no miles on it for mine. Sort of defines the need for a demonstrator car.
I loved his downshifts, or was that the computer?
