    Perfect amount.

    Torque a tad shy, but that’ll work in favour of traction.

    Good work Ford.

    Isnt the Red Eye more powerful? I'd like to see the two face head to head, unless Ford specifically means around a track and not a straight line.

    2020 Mercedes-AMG E63 S 604hp/4.0l = 151HP/L

    The Ferrari Portofino is 592HP/3.9L = 151 HP/L.

    The Ferrari 488 GTB is 660HP/3.9L = 169HP/L.

    The McLaren 720S is 710HP/4.0L = 177HP/L

    Are they talking about American only?

    I can see the ZL1 getting the 755 LT5 sooner than expected.

    Me too. But since the Z28 is N/A only, it would be a let down from the ZL1

    760 hp is so much power. Glad that's where it ended up. A little disappointed in the torque output, but I'll live.

    And Ford claimed this is the most densely powered supercharged V8 in production. I believe all those listed above are twin turbo-charged.

    Power (HP), I would say Red Eye...but, fastest is time. I'm sure all the testing will back up what Ford is putting down. I hear on Challenger Talk how slow the Hellcats "feel". due to weight.

    Probably just like a space ship. You can't feel the speed because it is HUGE.

    Correct. The most power dense v8 with specific method of forced induction: supercharged.

    Right. Ford has already stated sub 11 second 1/4 mile times and mid 3 second 0-60...which is precisely where the Red Eye falls. The Red Eye might have the HP advantage, but the GT500 will have a significant weight advantage.
