Yeah. Since I learned from ToyotaNation'* forums that this was done in Toronto, I've got a hunch that it was done in the general area of Maranallo BMW/Ferrari. Which ain't far from me at all.

You could most likely speed all you want in that thing, the cops wouldn't be able to see you. All they would see is a flash of sunlight. And if they did catch it going by, they would loose it in traffic.
