    I thought it was a 14.5 second car. :confused:

    No way it will do low 13's. I'll wait and see before doing the old touchdown dance.

    That was the Evo 8. I have the same issue.

    They suck at driving the Cobra though :sad2:

    Though that mph is indicative of a ~300hp car

    Mid to high 12's. Rookies get a low 13-second quarter mile with that car (Cobra).

    they took out the speed limiter too and it beat out the ferrari i think. i didnt read the article, saw the motor trend program on speedvision with some british guy doing all the tests. he liked the mustang too, first time driving one.

    And to think... the CL600 has more power, more torque, and weights MAYBE a couple of hundred pounds more. not to mention the turbos. I want to see som 'official' times on that thing! :drool:

    I'm trying to reconcile in my mind how a car that weighs that much and makes that little power with such a peaky torque curve could run a 13.08. :confused:

    Same way most magazines put the cobra at low 13s but all its fans insist that it is capable of running low 9s with nothing but a roll of duct tape and a stick of trident.
