I wonder who the first person that kills themselves in one of those will be...

I know better than to question "why?", because I know the answer, but that is just nuts.

Dude if I had that someone asked me why, I would slam on the gas and do the sickest burnout ever.

car like that with that much power needs all wheel drive. it will never be able to make good use of all the hp in that car otherwise except for top end. as you approach 200mph things get weird and the aerodynamics are very important.

good for bragging rights perhaps. id rather have a veyron.

That car would be absolutely uncontrollable by anyone but an experienced racer. I have found out the hard way the you can have too much power....for the street anyway.

I agree with everything else you said but the veyron has to be the butt-ugliest 'supercar' I've ever seen in my life.

Damn that thing looks ridiculous...like a saddle shoe or something.

Must have one....no two, because I'll fuck one up trying to figger out how to drive the damn thing, and if I survive, then I get the 2nd one.

I'll say this:

I respect ANY car that is taken to that level or any cobra for that matter.
SO I pay my respects.

BUT, I will say power was never something even the 427 was lacking, it was braking and handling.
So even with a beefed up suspension I don't see how this much power in this car does anygood.
I mean it would be so bad I don't even think saying you have that engine would give you any bragging rights over any other cobra.
That's ALOT of power.

So sweet though.

I'm gonna regret this, but here goes. What most people don't understand is that no tire will get that car to hook up. The tire could be 5' wide. Top fuel dragster tires. Wouldn't matter much.

That's why once you reach a certain point all you do is blow the tires off with less throttle. Softer gumballs will help but only to an extent.

I have driven a kit one with a a pro chargered 5.0 so only around 350-400 HP
you could blow the 305 series tires off in 1-3 they would still spin pretty well in 4th didn't beat 5th gear much as OD is not real strong in a tremec and it was not my car
seriously fun car though

somebody good *might* be able to get thing around in a hurry on a 10" or so slick at the drag strip but im betting this thing is buttoned up tight suspension wise and is not gonna be real conductive to even a moderate launch at that power level

All the horses in the world ain't any good, if you can't hook them up to the pavement!

Aren't cobras kinda' "Squirrelly" with a big V8 anyway?????

Make mine an Ariel Atom Thankyouverymuch!!

When I was growing up the guy up the street had a 72 Vega, tubbed with a full roll cage / tube frame and a 454 bored out to a 485, 4 speed and 4:11 rear gears.

It had a (small) set of wheelie bars out back and a set of blown shocks in the front. Both were well used.

Go look at the turbo mustangs today that

make more HP

Weight more

and have a 10" tire

They hook up.

Every Cobra I ever rode in hooks up pretty well. A superlight car like that might suprise you.
