If Gabriel Garcia Marquez were a gearhead, we think he’d approve.Just as a refresher, the Evora Sport 410 featured in this video is a ludicrous fiberglass and carbon-fiber bodied sports car with a supercharged Toyota Avalon engine that makes 410 horsepower shoehorned into the back. It’s built around an aluminum monocoque chassis and weighs just 2,921 pounds. It’s a very silly car.Anyway, make sure your boss isn’t around, plug in your headphones and crank the volume up for this one. You weren’t doing any real work anyway, were you?
