  1. This car even now has the power to kill any and all kinds of sports cars and supercars.That 0-60 and 0-100 is gotta be the best ever and the weight is so light you cant go wrong with that!

    And, look, what are the modifications done to it with these great speeds? Totally awesome.

    I truly love this car
     
  5. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    I sc.net's stats are wrong (not the first time). with such a low weight, and over 400 hp, it should be able to get a sub 4 0-60, or damn close. Wouldn't be the fist time sc.net was wrong
     
  6. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    I seen reports of a 0-60 time in 3.5 seconds with the top speed of 165mph
     
  7. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    yeah that sounds much more on par with what it should be getting. Times like that should be able to keep the idiots who compare everything to the z06 and viper away<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    it held the 0-100-0 record for near 20 years, unless I'm mistaken. Not only that, it took the Mclaren f1 to beat it.
     
  9. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    Actually, a Shelby Cobra 427 beat its own 0-100-0 in 14 seconds record a few years back. I'm not sure if it was official, but I think it actually managed to get a sub 13 seconds! I cannot remember what automotive magazine I read that in..........
     
  10. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    in 1965, driver Ken Miles did a 12.4 second run for the 0-100mph-0. This was in a 500bhp 427 Cobra. THis time was beaten by a McLaren F1 LM (it did 11.5 seconds), but a Caterham R500 bet the McLaren (posting 11.44 seconds).

    In the 60's i knew i guy who owned one. He took me for a ride. it wasnt the smoothes ride but man was it fast

    I don't think it is idiotic for people to compare everything to the Zo6. It is the bench mark for which all other super cars shold be measured. Its affordabilty, reliabilty, and sheer performance are unparalled. It is also frequently compared because it is current and it is has a few creature comforts unlike the 427 Cobra.

    However, the 427 CObra is probably one the best cars in the world. It will smoke a z06 or a viper and pace even the most exotic european super cars. All this from a 40 year old car running old technology. Nothing beats american muscle and this car has proven it for the last fotry years and will continue to do so.
     
  13. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    Bench Mark? How so? A megabusa or caterham superlight will run circles around it for less money. Mind you they don't have unnecessary creature comforts such as air bags, a roof, or even a winshield.

    Even if it was a benchmark car, that doesn't mean it should be compared to everything. It's not even uncommon in these forums that luxury cars are compared to the Z06. I don't really care if it's compared against the Viper, 360 Modena, 911 turbo and things a like. It's also compared to cars like the civic or S2000. It's getting pretty rediculous, really.
     
  14. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    I have to agree. I can imagine saying "Wow, look at the flawless interior on this car!" speaking of a luxury car. You can bet within a few days, if not sooner, someone will say "You could buy a Z06 for that price and way out run this car." There are just too many kids on the site that just think about speed.

    I would just like to say Amen to that little signature thing under EmmArTooGuy's post. It's bloody hysterical!
     
  16. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    And to think this car isnt rocket science. Its simplicity is staggering. Origonally built with a Ford 9" rear and a mustang front end granted the ride itself wasnt perfect but slamming a big block in a car that weighs roughly a ton just screams performance. It took a modern day McLaren to top it and nothing could beat it back in the day. Heck the Corvette Grande Sport was produced to compete but couldnt and Shelby didnt stop there. He made the Mustang king of the track too. Then Ford came out with the GT40 to whipe Ferrari off the charts and succeeded. There is no doubt that when Ford sets out to own the track they do so. But you cant tell that to an ignorant bowtie baby.

    Personally I wouldn't care if an enzo could dust, this is a beast, in a sexy body.
     
  18. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    yup, one of the best cars of all time, without a doubt. My uncle has a kit of one of these, i know its not the same, but its still bloody fast and bloody nice! but sigh, its no original :p how many originals are in existence today anyway?
     
  19. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    december 1963 the chevy corvette grandsport trounced the shelby cobras at the nassau speed weeks
    here are some numbers 2000lbs or somewhere around there and 500+hp
    lets all thank the ama ban on factory backed racing for destroying what could have been a car to rival the cobras in the 60's
    i like the cobras but i love the grandsports
     
  20. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    I bet it was fast! a very fast, and uncompromising ride, all in the baddest Musclecar ever produced!! Carroll Shelby was a damn genius!!! I think this is the car that should set the standard, (if it hasn't already) and not the ZO6..because this was the original American Supercar, and always will be!!

    God Bless Carroll Shelby!!! lol
     
  21. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    This car is quick yeah!

    It ain't the fastest car in history, but when u put it up to other
    classic street-legals it's prob. one of them...
    The Miura did it in 5 blank i think...
    That should say enough I think...
     
  22. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    Wrong. In fact, so wrong I don't know where to start.

    The only Ford part in an original Cobra is the engine. The chassis and body are from the AC Ace. It did NOT have a Mustang front end or any kind of Ford back end, and I don't know where you got that ridiculous idea from It is simply NOT TRUE. Idiot.
     
  23. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    Yeah it's definatly a classic car. One of my personal favs.
     
  24. Re: The Only Car that can kill any supercar!!!!To a point

    My uncle is getting a replica of one. It is going to have 650 hp and is gonna fly. It will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds and have a 1/4 mile of 9 seconds. Its gonna have a 427 v8 undert the hood with no turbo. He said it will be done in august of 2003 i cant wait to see it!
