    Faster than a Super Snake?



    Shelby Motors built twenty two 427 competition roadsters. In 1965, one was selected and converted into a special model called the 427 "Cobra to End All Cobras." The first one of these (number CSX3015) was originally part of a European promotional tour before its conversion. This conversion called for making the original racing model street legal with mufflers, a windshield and bumpers amongst other modifications. But some things were not modified, including the racing rear end, brakes and headers. The most notable modification is the addition of Twin Paxton Superchargers. This gave the car a claimed 800 brake horsepower (600 kW) and 800 lbft (1,085 Nm) of torque at 3000 rpm.
    I'd trade a testicle for that.

    Re: Old vs new American car design

    I don't know if it's worth a testicle... does it have bluetooth?

    That type of car suits older, nearly retired gentlemen. It'd be a pretty hot car but it wouldn't suit my young looks necessarily.

    But... if it had twisted metal style weapons on it...

    Shelby's original model, CSX3015, was kept by Carroll Shelby himself over the years as a personal car, sometimes entering it into local races like the Turismos Visitadores Cannonball-Run race in Nevada, where he was "waking [up] whole towns, blowing out windows, throwing belts and catching fire a couple of times, but finishing."
    Good enough?

    You want fast

    Porsche 911 Turbo S, great looking car that is as good looking as any Porsche from the 60s and almost the 50s

    Or the new Corvette


    Faster and as well styled as any vette of the 50-60's

    The new Charger

    Some of the cars today are very well styled, some not so much. Some of the cars from the 50-60 were dull and boring designs, others classics

    In the vette, yes they could have done far better then they have. It is a poor interior in a car with one of the worlds best engines, and great sports cars

    Re: Old vs new American car design

    I notice that in alot of the newer american sportscars I see, pretty good an unique design, very modern and competitive, but the interiors tend to be sortof bleh. I like wooden interiors from the village trees of virtually extint societies in temperate jungle areas, and the ivory of the rarest species. Not to mention an engine lubed with the grease of snow leopard livers. Anything to speed the demise of rare valuable creatures... only making my possession of their remains more valuable.

    The Mustang, Camaro are built to a price point, which does not allow for great interiors. The Mustang engines are great and its performance (GT) is as good as the BMW M3 at about 60% of the price of the M3. It is faster and better around the track then my 370z but thousands less. Those dollars came from the interior

    GMs Cadilac CTS is a beautiful car with a beautiful interior on par with the germans in quality of the materials (and with the ZR1 engine as fast or faster)
