The engine sound of the Lamborghini Countach in this movie sounds like a V8 (likely a Ferrari V8). Originally the car has a V12 engine.

When they are about to start the race, the tail lights of Valentinos Lambo Countach are the original LP500 ones, later when they race Alec and Vic in their Jag, the tail lights are the same as those on the 25th Anniversary edition of the LP500.

Errors in geography 

When the cop is behind the Lamborghini on the trailer, they enter Missouri. The driver says "now that we're out of Iowa, you're out of your jurisdiction." I-70 does not go through Iowa.

Factual errors 

When the cop is chasing the Lamborghini on I-70, the line on the road is yellow, meaning a 2-lane highway with 2-way traffic. An interstate would have a white line, indicating 2 lanes going the same direction.
