Nice, but I'm less interested in the HP and more interested in its streetability and fuel economy. WHAT????? You might say. FUEL ECONOMY??? WHO CARES? Well, the way I see it, sink enough money into a V8 and the sky's the limit in terms of power. Yes, there are people who will pay $103,000 for an 800 HP something or other that can't pass a gas station. Most of those guys live in California. There's a gas station and liquor store on every corner, it seems. I'm more interested in ADVANCING technology, not status quo. Show me an 800 HP car that get 20+ MPG and is 100% streetable, and I'll be impressed. Otherwise it's just another overpowered dragster.

Correction...overpowered street dragster. :-p Kind of underpowered for a true dragster.

I'd like to see what it can do with better tires and traction.

Instead of adding more hp every time, shelby needs to upgrade its suspension drastically. Adding an enormous amount of power to a car with the suspension of a GT is just stupid. I love the idea of the super snake but a GTR can beat it what the hell is up with that?!?!

I hope the people buying these things are living in warm wearther climates. Or atleast have another car to in the winter. I mean a base GT with 412 hp. Would be hard to hook up on ice.

If it can do 0-60 faster than the ZR1 or close to it, then I'll be impressed. Other than that it's just another 800 hp muscle car with horrible acceleration numbers.

If you read it you will see there is also available suspension upgrades ON TOP of the suspension upgrades it has standard.

Plus..its just a supercharged shelby. I wouldnt be suprised if it STILL managed to get over 20mpg. RX8s are still being sold that only get 22mpg and get what? 232hp?

Nuff said.
