    I find this hard to believe. I would expect a better showing from the 458. Can someone make sense of this to me?

    It does seem a bit strange, but according to places like motor trend the 458 does the 1/4 mile in 11.5 seconds which I believe a 600hp V can compete with. I tried to find some 50-70mph times but had no luck.

    seems about right to me.. we *are* talking about a V with essentially 160 whp above stock with 373's and a 170hp advantage over the 458. Besides that, straight-line speed isn't exclusive to exotic's anymore. I mean even Mustang GT's pack 400+ hp and do 11s on street tires these days. If anything it's a testimate to the LSA's potential that he was pulling without even downpipes or an exhaust!

    Here's a list of mods.
    wrong sir.

    the list of mods are as follows;

    1) 16oz can of whoop a$$

    Holee.......I thought it was going to be close, then the V started hauling ass. Wow. Did the guy driving the 458 see the cops and shut it down?

    The 458 has a 5.27 lb/hp ratio and the V with 609whp is about 761bhp so it is at 5.62 lb/hp.

    Although the 458 had a better power to weight the V's torque wins the game here but I would bet @ 130mph + the 458's weght advantage and aero would come through.

    My $.02

    Those damn wealthy Russians and their oil money. Always posting street racing videos on youtube from Moscow's third transport ring freeway. Also explains why both cars are equal in speed. Socialism at its finest....
