If you get any of the usual car magazines, the big thing everyone is testing is the Shelby GT500. 662hp for $45k. If you do the math, it has about 5.7 pounds per horsepower, which is almost exactly the same ratio as...my 6 year old sportbike. Yep, this guy, that I bought for less than 10% of what the shelby cost:



So with all of the development and everything that Ford has done, they've managed to finally make a vehicle that can keep up with the cheapest sportbike that Honda makes. Bra-vo. Owning a motorcycle has officially killed my desire to own a "fast" car. I no longer care about "modding" my BMW's motor. Turbo kits make me yawn. I am jaded.
