1200 horsepower in a street legal car?

I'd be afraid to drive it, but I wouldn't mind sitting in it and pretending.

And damn.......I would look good in that car.

1200 HP (and more) cars have been on the streets for decades.

Getting that out of Vipers and late model Vettes is fairly easy but will cost some money. Pretty much anything with a big cube V8(and a select few other motors)..hell, doing it to the various "V" model Cadillacs is pretty popular (and most wicked).

You can drive them cross country with the AC on.

quarter mil, by the time you buy it, insure it, and tag it, not counting interest if you finance it.

I own this, with about half the HP and about a quarter the weight.

i used to race on the streets and tracks in my teenage years . not saying it was smart but definately loved being the top dog in my town for a while . but being top dog is like a paranoid photographer trying to take close up pic of the horizon ..

aint happening / gave it up years ago . miss it dont miss it

being top dog is a illusion . and sometimes you get man slapped in to it lol

Lingenfelter 2006 Z06...260.32 MPH on runway at El Toro in Irvine.

Edited to add...The video claims to have been taken at MCAS El Toro. Watching the video, that sure doesn't look like El Toro to me, I've been on the base many times.

Yep, you're exactly correct, Rabbi - all it takes is money - which, unfortunately, in the quantity required for these toys, has become an endangered species in my household.

How about a 2100HP Vauxhall Victor, "bought for 100 quid and built buy a man in a shed." Apparently riding in it is like "having a 70% orgasm."

The article says it includes launch control and an adjustable suspension setup. I don't know what that entails, but unless the suspension/handling system is drastically changed the 1200 horsepower would be basically useless anywhere but at a dragstrip.
