Horsepower: 305 hp Max Horsepower: 5800 rpm

The Cobra R costs close to $70k. The SVT Cobra '03 costs a lil over $30k. With about a lil over grand in bolt-ons the new Cobra will see 11'* on street tires. I would definently pick the new Cobra over the GTO. Maybe my choice will change when I see the GTO in person.
