Bmw 850i with twin T-61 turbochargers
should be good for about 1400 whp

toss up between a ferrari 262 gtb or the new 435 or the enzo.

Out of those choices, I voted for the GT.

But I would really love a brand new Rubicon.

eh...if you say so. The block would split at around 900, the stock pistons at around 600. 1400whp is more like 1700hp at the crank.

Ford GT, modular engine = more aftermarket parts than all the others combined, for 1/4 the price.

Is there really any question? 1994 Aston Martin Virage. Not max performance, but enough for me. Just look at this thing!!!

Keep the Eurotrash.

Dream car?


1956 Chevy Nomad, 2 door fire engine red

.030 over 327, single 4bbl tunnel ram, Holley 750 double pumper, 462 heads, engine innards to match

2:2 Muncie, Mr. Gasket vertical gate shifter, 11" clutch

narrowed older 12 bolt rear end with a set of highway gears and a set of 4:11s

50s stuffed up underneath, classic Cragar S/S mags all around.

And now for something completely different:

If I couldn't have the Nomad, I'll take an original Hummer with a diesel, custom U.S.M.C. paint job. (camo)

How about 1 of 2 shelby cobras that came from the factory with a 427 and a pair of paxton superchargers. Man that thing would out run everything but a gas station, if you could ever get traction.

I picked the Murcielago, but I shoulda picked 'other' and put the following list down:
Lamborghini Countach (classic italian supercar)
Ferrari 512M <-- what I *really* want
BD-10J (ok, ok, not a car, but a pretty cool 80s kitplane as long as it doesn't break up in midair)

never mind the original ford GT40, which whupped porsche and ferrari.

Or the fact that the Ford GT has won every comparison test that it's been in.

love to see the comparison tests that any production Ford GT has been in... I haven't seen one.

eta: not to mention that what happened with the GT40 in the 60s has very little relevance to a modern production supercar

they put it against the GT3 and the Challenge Stradale. another one, the Gallardo. and the SRT-10 vipper.

The GT40 was production...how else do you explain street legal GT40s running around the streets of the US and UK?

Incorrect, legal boy. They had to make a certain of street cars in order to race back then. If you bought one, they flew you to England and the seats and pedals were custom fitted for you.
