Lol. Maybe a Vett, but how can you call a high performance, big block engine with 2 seats on the back...a "sports car"?

The Cobra is 80% muscle, 20% car

You do understand that 'factory' ratings on any of these is of limited value right? Manufacturers were very much in the habit of under-reporting these numbers for insurance purposes.

yes exactly, that's why I made a point to say "factory rated". Ls6 454s have been dynoed well over 500hp and 520 lb/ft of torque

Doesn't seem to be that much. Boss 429's stock from Ford have been dynoed at close to 700hp...

Edit: might be the 427 side oiler I am thinking of... either way ford said the 427 in the Cobra had 425hp and the Boss 429 had 375...
