What does 462 mph look like?

One of the many micro-genres featured on kottke.org is the “going fast video”. In that spirit, here’s a car going 462 mph on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

My favorite part is right around 30 seconds, when he hits the gas and you can see the dirt fly up from the rear wheels. Also, the driver’s demeanor is an odd combination of frightened and bored, like Bill Murray on the elliptical in Lost in Translation. Help! (via devour)
