I'll take a shot at this.

No. It was a business decision to create a number that gave Shelby enough time to promote a car without the record being topped by an opponent during his sales blitz.


He totally bamboozled the American car reviewers (even up till Friday). I don't think he realized the intelligence of Tim Burton. Burton is a game changer he's smart and he's dependable. I joke about Burton's (Shmee 150's) mannerism but he's a game changer along with a few others in utilizing YouTube for car reviews.

Eventually he will "conclude" that a confluence of circumstances resulted in erroneous measurements on the first run, and that the car is only capable of a top speed of [insert MPH substantially less than 331 here]...
