First Glimpse at Disney California Adventure's New Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters Ride Vehicle, in Action

YouTuber MintCrocodile recorded a glimpse of Disney testing the new ride vehicles on Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters. You can see a single ride vehicle in action at the 10-second mark, as well as a longer stretch of action at the 37-second mark.
The Rollickin' Roadsters are replacing the Luigi's Flying Tires ride, which closed earlier this year. Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters will be a trackless ride, similar in function to the Aquatopia ride at Tokyo DisneySea. The big difference, of course, will be that the Rollickin' Roadsters ride vehicles will look like cars on a paved surface, rather than boats on the water. (In reality, the water on Aquatopia is only a few inches deep and the ride vehicles are not floating, but running on wheels.) Here is the Aquatopia ride in action, for reference:
Disney has said that Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters will open in "early 2016."
