Talking about law of Physics. Human body weight get even with air resistance at about 120 mph (that's the max skydiver can get in normal conditions).
Air drag at 240 mph is 4 times bigger, than at 120 mph.
Meaning that if 200 lb person would like to hang to the hood of that car at top speed, he would have to hold over 800 lb of air resistance of his body.
