This truck is already set for delivery to it’s new owner in Florida, so John wisely elects not to take the truck off roading and risk damaging the $350,000 ride.

However, he does take it for a ride around the road course, which is tied into a drag stip used for straightline acceleration testing, although again, John elects to not push the truck anywhere near it’s limits since it’s already paid for and awaiting delivery to the client.
