Amazing car. Ford's entry into the my dog is bigger than your dog 700+ HP party.
ZR1, Hellcat, Demon, Shelby 500. I have seen guys drive off the lots with these
ego boosters and trade them after 800 miles. If you have to have it, OK, but be careful.
It's definitely too much power for me. I sure as heck don't want to get used to over 700 hp. What would I be buying 5-10 years from now?

What’re you trying to determine? Or just comparisons?

If the GT500 makes more than the corvette, then something is funny.

It’s possible the base predator without the blow makes 480-500hp, where I bet the zr1 engine without the blower is good for 420-440
Im just anecdotally bracketing HP #s. we know what 5.0 with 2650 makes at X psi on 93, and we know what the 6.2 LT5 makes with a 2650 on 93; comparing compression ratioes vs hp/psi etc ect.

I'm not interested in electric. I need a car powered by explosions.
Agreed, but that future seems quite dim, especially for someone as young as me

That's what they want you to think. The gas and oil industry isn't going anywhere anytime soon. 350 million + people in this country and that means a whole lot of cars and trucks people and business depend on. It's quite a laughable pipe dream to think it'll all be "Gone in 60 seconds". Big business always wins. Plan for a 2030 GT500.
