Well, stock they aren't very quick, like mid 16'* or something. Mid 16'* aren't bad, but definately not fast. Before my dad had his IC on his GTP (it was probably a 13.4 car or so) he RAN away from one on the freeway, and I mean he RAN away. We started from an 80mph roll and by 110 we had like 10-15 carlengths on him, it was so bad it wasn't even funny. I know the guy was trying at first. Maybe he gave up after we started pulling on him like mad, but he was trying until at least like 95 or so.

However, my neighbor has one that looks just like that. He is in his mid 50'*, and his is definately not stock. I don't know what it runs, but it has like a stage 3 supercharger kit on it, and i guess its supposed to be pretty quick. He was telling us all about it at my sisters open house and was about to tell us how quick it was, but then he asked how quick the GTP was, and when we showed him what was at that time his best slip of 12.2, he kinda shut up, which was unfortunate because I was interested because it seems like a cool ride. I would imagine his is like a low 14 car at the slowest. I could be wrong though.
