800 hp is nice for bragging rights, but it doesn't mean sh!t if you can only put 500 of it to the ground which will likely be the case, as also is with the current outgoing 725 hp Super Snake which in all reality isn't any faster than the 550 hp GT500. It only makes sense if you mini-tub it and outfit it with a drag suspension setup capable of hunting buffalo.
Another example, I recall a Motor Trend from about 2 years ago they had a comparison between the then-current 505 hp Z06 vs. a like 800-something hp Lingenfelter (sp?) Corvette. Even with a superb platform such as the C6 has, the extra power proved to rob the chassis of balance, making the car easily uncontrollable under most circumstances. And bottom line: The Z06 outperformed the tuner Vette in just about every category.
