Continuity mistake: When the two Lamborghini ladies are stopped by the police the first time, you first see the lady in the red dress from the front. Her zip is obviously up. In the next shot you see the other race participants raging by. The lady is shown from behind now. When you see her from the front again, the zip is down. Now we can see her from behind, and as we see her from the front again the zip is up again. Then she puts it down again to show the sheriff her driver's licence.
