    Question So is GM or Dodge going to one up the GT500?

    5.2L supercharged V8, 760HP, 7spd. twin clutch comp. controlled trans w/ multi modes + shifts in 0.1 sec., carbon fiber driveshaft, 16.5" rotors w/ 6 piston calipers.
    If anyone is feeling generous and would like to buy me one I would be grateful.

    As often as I break my $700.00 each carbon fiber leg braces,
    3 in about 1.5 years. I don’t want carbon fiber anything on my car/truck.

    Why can't they make REAL SUV's anymore? I miss the Chevy Trailblazer SS, the Typhoon, etc. Everything now is unibody junk.
    The Trackhawk is the only decent one out there, and it's ugly as sin.
    If they put the hellcat motor in a DURANGO - that would be a sharp looking SUV. The R/T durango is sweet looking, but needs the power to back it up, which it lacks.

    This mustang is one badass ride! The look, the power...I love it.
    Isn't dodge coming out with the Hellephant or something to that effect that is going to put 900hp to the pavement?

    If built for the conditions, it's not an issue. Had a ACPT carbon fiber driveshaft in my Trans Am back in the 90's. Made a big difference in vibration over 150mph...smooth as butter. Stock aluminum DS, not so much.

    As for the cars to beat the GT500, I did see the new Yenko Camaro will be 1000hp available right from GM, but only 50 being produced - I assume to commemorate 50 years since the '69 Yenko's.

    Really anything over 500 HP in a street car is just for bragging rites. The Demon spoiled us for big numbers.

    900hp Challenger and a 1K hp Camaro. That is insane.

    I tell ya what they get out of engines now is amazing. My old 89 GT only came with 225hp and I thought that was good for a "modern" car. Then again I bought it 2 years old for 7K so that's easier on the pocket than 74K.
