Any specs out on this thing? Like Cubic inches, Turbo? Direct injection? OHC? how many? Just curious what engine they squeeze that kind of power from, and how.

Yeah, you would need to have a realistic view of your own skills and know when to back off the gas. Still, what a blast.

I can't even possibly imagine flooring a 700hp vehicle.

I had a '94 Z-28 with the LT1 at 275hp and 325ft torque, and it was so much power, it was like taming a wild animal. If you floored it on stop, you would just sit there with the tires burning. Even if you were going 50mph, and then floored it as hard as you could, the car jumped so fast, you would be pinned back in your seat and had to be extremely careful to maintain control.

Good times!

I always thought the car I had before it, my '89 Formula 350 with the LS1, handled better though. I dunno why.

its going to be a great car in the right hands.wonder how many people will kill somebody else with it trying to prove they have the right hands?

Auto body shops and morticians are in for a windfall LOL.

Even though my tag line says you can't have too much horsepower, you can if you don't know how to use it. I currently have an '06 Z06 with 505hp and there really isn't anyplace other than the race track where you can truly take advantage of the power and handling in a car like that.

I owned a BMW M5 about 7 or 8 years ago and the guy at the dealership told me that they should issue driving school certificates with every M they sell since about half up them come back into their body shop within a few months of being bought.

Chrysler needs to make a water pump that won't fail at 40K miles.

The last 3 Chryslers I've owned, have all blown up. I drive like drugged up old lady too.

I had an '01 Camaro SS that I beat the crap out of and it's still running fine today. I see it around town once in awhile :)

Currently drive a Ram 1500 SLT and it's a piece of crap too! Rustbucket.

Challengers are very cool lookin' cars though. Always liked Chrysler designs!!

The horsepower wars...part 2.

It's like the 60's all over again but better...for the HP numbers at least, not necessarily the styling in my book.

I remember going to car shows as a kid and 500 HP was just monstrous. Big-block, 6-71 blower, huge cam, just a total earth shaking beast that barely stayed running at less than 3000 RPMs.

Now, 500 HP in a new ride is pedestrian. Z06 vettes, Challengers, Shelby Mustangs (662 hp!!). Now they roll past you at a car show all quiet like, A/C on, 20+ mpg. Much more refined than I would have imagined as a little tike gearhead.

I talked to a guy at a local show last week who was making 975 HP to the tire on his Shelby GT-500 and he was working to squeeze another 200-300 HP out of it.

That being said, There's still nothing like old steel with a big block & a nasty ass cam in it.

Yeah, guys, the "muscle cars" of the 60's fair better in our memories than reality. The second car I got was a new 1964 Pontiac GTO hardtop. Stats were like this: Zero to 60 in 7.2 seconds. Top speed of 130. Stock tires were two ply rayon bias ply. The thing couldn't pull any g's on a corner without spinning out (too nose heavy). And I tried to use the brakes to pull her down from 120 one time, and I might as well have opened the door and drug my left foot! So I had a car that today would be outrun by a Honda civic, and out-cornered, and out braked. Hell, I could out run it in all respects with my current SUV!

Now that new Dodge --- that is a REAL muscle car!:)

:shock: OMFG!! Take it to the Nuremberg Ring!! NOW!!

This is NOT a track car. This is a straight line car. You'll do fine at the local 1/4 mile strip, but you're gonna just suck on a road course.
