Ford Shelby GT500 v Hennessey Camaro:
Hennessey HPE550 Supercharged Chevy Camaro SS:
We're looking at the 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR and 2008 Chevrolet Corvette
Z06, but we're imagining a '68 Shelby GT500KR staging next to a Corvette
with one of the 427-cubic-inch V8s on the Connecting Highway in Queens, New
York, probably sometime during the Nixon administration. We don't know how
the cars are tuned or which driver has the better hole-shot technique, but
we're calling our street race in favor of the Vette.
You see, there's no historical basis for a close Corvette-Mustang rivalry. A Corvette of any
year is a little too fast and smart to be street racing ratty muscle cars.
It's a real sports car, the kind of car that's still fun when you start
going around corners.
But maybe it's a different story with this 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR and
2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Each of these rear-wheel-drive coupes has a V8
rated for more than 500 horsepower at the flywheel.
And with the release of the limited-edition 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR, Ford
has moved in on Chevrolet's price territory. The GT500KR leaves the Ford
factory as a $46,730 GT500 coupe and is shipped as a rolling chassis to
Carroll Shelby's facility near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Nevada. By
the time the KR cruises out of Shelby's shop, it's an $82,395 Mustang.
As such, the King-of-the-Road Mustang must now contend with this
$76,920 2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. And though the Z06 is a few horsepower shy of the
upcoming ZR1, it's not an easy mark. The GT500KR will have to play like a
sports car just to keep up.
2008 Dodge Viper ACR: From L.A. to Bonneville
CHECK OUT THE VIPER AC-R ARTICLE:
We're about to make our first high-speed run in the still-black 2008 Dodge
Viper ACR when the old guy pulls up to our makeshift pit. He looks exactly
like the guy you'd expect to meet in the middle of the Bonneville Salt
Flats, like a worn-out Hank Williams, Jr.
Over the deafening cackle of his Cummins-powered diesel pickup, he yells,
"What's you boys doin'?"
"We're going to make a few runs in this Viper here."
"Yeah, how fast will she run?"
"We don't really know. Maybe 190 or so."
By the expression on his face, it's obvious ol' Hank has figured out that
we have no idea what we're doin'. He knows we're just a bunch of yahoos
with a fast car. He takes a good long look at the big winged Viper, then he
shuts off the truck's engine so we can hear him better.
"When you're going fast, the slightest gust of wind can flip you," he says.
"That's why we only ran early in the morning when the air was calm."
We look up at the mid-afternoon sun and wonder what we've gotten ourselves
"And make sure you don't run out of room," he continues. "You think you
have all the space in the world, then Floating Mountain is suddenly right
in your face. I remember when I went for 300 mph back in 1978; my chutes
didn't open and I almost didn't get her stopped." He runs his fingers
through a white beard. "Didn't make 300 either," he adds. "Only 280."
Great. We thought this Bonneville thing was as easy as holding our foot
down until the speedometer stopped moving. Now Mr. Monday Night has us
imagining our $100,000 Viper sliding across the Utah desert on its roof.
