I just read it in my Road and Track:

Cobra */c is at:
0-60.........4.9
0-100......11.1
1/4........... 13.3 @ 108.1

GTO is:
0-60.........5.3
0-100......12.9
1/4........... 13.8 @ 103.8

I'm sorry to say but the GTO would lose... I really don't care, I think that they are pretty damn nice cars, and I was just having a discussion with my dad about looking at one in the spring.

those are great #'* for both!!! i've seen the new Cobras in stock trim beating Z06'* though. I would've thought high 12'* in the 1/4...

I don't know about stock trim... but a few easy bolt ons (pulley, x-pipe, cats, intake, etc.) and the new stangs FLY!!! I got a video on my computer of a new stang going 0-160 in like 15 seconds with only bolt ons!!

BTW here are corvette #'* just for a comparison
Regular vette:
0-60.........4.9
0-100......11.5
1/4........... 13.4 @ 107.5

Z06:
0-60.........4.5
0-100......9.9
1/4........... 12.8 @ 113.5

After weve seen GM supercharge one of their best engines, the 3.8L, I think its boosted LS1 or LS6 time.

Can anyone say, 450 hp euro competition sedan in a Bonne, and optional engines in the Vette, and GTO?

yes, actually it would. just FYI, the cobra r had pretty much nothing, radio, a/c, back seat, blah blah blah and was built primarily for race. it even had the 5.4L(351s/c) that is shared with the Lightning. the '03 has the dohc 32valve 4.6. it is */c and rated at 390hp(vs. 385 in the R). it also has all the cd changers and a/c'* as well. i know yall aren't Ford fans but
Ummm..Actually the 5.4 Liter is around 331 cubic inches. 351 is a 5.8 liter... ..So Ford is outdoing the 350 with a 331... :P

j/k...I think the Cobra R was a 5.8 Liter un-supercharged......
