Most great super cars have done this little game of taking on a plane. Lamborghini Reventon for instance challenged a F22 Raptor, and Bugatti Veyron took on the Euro Fighter Typhoon.

He races the Eclipse down the runway of Vance Brand Municipal Airport in Longmont, CO and back, and beats it with a time of 56 seconds. Check out the action below:
