Wait till the new M5 comes out.
Apparently better HP/Weight ratio than the Viper!

Hey Moe, check out the GMC Somoma Pickup, it does 10's on the 1/4! Got to be a hoot to see a pickup with the front end up on launch! Now there's something for you to strive for your Lightning!

Um, these cars are modified!
not factory modified, but aftermarket.

Dam, they should've included Pablo's Project M3 from European Car, or even better, some guy's Mcoupe AA Turbo in Miami which can kill Yamaha R1 bikes!

Then again these are mainly newer cars sooo...

Lol there cars are nuts, BUT...

There is THE most nuts car on the planet. John Coletti (HOORAY FOR ITALIANS ! ! ! ), who is the head engineer and director of Ford's SVT decided he needed a real man's car. He took the 2nd last gen Mustang, and put a 10L Boss engine in it. He completely modified everything inside and outside the block.

The car is a rocket.

0 - 60 mph in 1.9 seconds!!!

That would rip someone's head off!

1/4 mile in 9 seconds.

All this and completely streetable!!

Its built that way to handle the torque and take advantage of the broad torque curve. This engine is mean!

I watched the SuperTuner challenge on Car and Driver TV last weekend... pretty impressive shit! Too bad the Porsche lost by so little.
