The Porsche Carrera GT has a reputation as a bit of a tricky car--a fact that was pushed beyond reason in the weeks following Paul Walker's death in one, alongside racing driver Roger Rodas.

But respect is not all the Porsche Carrera GT demands. It demands attention, and it rewards the observer with its sights and its sounds. Want proof? Take the eye and ear candy in the video above and roll it around in your brain-mouth for 80 seconds. Your eyes will water from the piquant tang of greatness.

Just be sure to turn up those speakers--and if your family holiday guests don't appreciate the excellence you're proffering, you might want to get yourself DNA tested. You could be adopted.
