Once you pass 400hp you can barely touch the gas without ripping the rubber off the wheels...
Modern computer controlled injection systems allow for stuff like programmed exponential curves in terms of throttle response. It means you can have
craploads of power, yet the car will respond fairly tame if you drive it normally. (No more twitchy than something like a Toyota Corolla.) However
once you get past the half-way to three-quarters point, that's when you should watch out for some head snapping acceleration. Everything will wake up
at that point.
Thus I'd expect that a car which costs more than my house would be built with enough engineering knowhow and sense to make it drivable. I'd likely
never get to experience it for myself, but I'd think they're not that bad.
However money doesn't buy common sense nor driving skill. People with way more money than brains will still manage to break these expensive toys on a
regular basis. So I'm with you in that regard.
