    I went up against a modified 98, Procharger, Large Throttle Body, bigger injectors, Headers, Indepent rear suspension out of a 03 Cobra....

    I spanked him. He was pushing about the same horsepower but I walked away. I'm not stock either but my Mod's are minor.

    Just remember, they are running a 4.6L so they need to do work to those things to get teh horsepower we have Base.

    The GT couldn't hold a candle to the V.

    Even the GT500 would lose to a lightly modded V.

    If you've seen 'em runnin 8.2 - 8.6, then you better race from a roll. Or at least run 1/4 mile. The only reason that they would be able to do that is because they can leave hard without leaving parts of the car behind (like us).

    I wouldn't go that far. They have hit low 12's in stock trim. But either way the CTS-V will destroy a stock Mustang GT with ease

    They are pigs but their biggest issue is getting traction off the line. Owners have gotten mid to low 12's bone stock in them but at the same time I wouldn't say that that is the norm either

    Only because unscrupulous journalists and/or underdeveloped drivers don't know how to launch this car. It weights 3900 lbs and makes 500 horsepower. That equates to a quarter mile elapsed time of 12.1 seconds; comparable to a Chevrolet Corvette. Mild modifications push this car down into the 11's.

    Shelby GT 500...the car that makes Z06 owners feel insecure.
