Alright guys I need some serious opinion here. Me and a friend go back and forth about the shelby cobra. He works for ford own a 96 snake nice car but knocks on the shelby. He's says it doesn't size up to the new z06. This kinda irritates me. Chevy up'd the displace of there motor to a 427 7.0 liter for crying out loud and ford matched it with a super charged 330. He says it weight more. Grant it i'll give him that but how can people argue and say it doesnt match up. I mean is it just mean or am i stupid? heres what I found C6 Z06 Record last updated 01 / 17 / 2006 Country of origin United States Year of introduction 2005 Introduced at 2005 NAIAS Numbers built N/A Body design N/A Weight 1420 kilo / 3130.6 lbs Drivetrain Engine LS7 90Ã‚Âº V 8 Engine Location Front , longitudinally mounted Displacement 7.011 liter / 427.8 cu in Valvetrain 2 valves / cylinder, OHV Fuel feed Fuel injection Aspiration Naturally Aspirated Gearbox Tremec 6 speed Manual Drive Rear wheel drive Performance figures Power 500 bhp / 373 KW @ 6200 rpm Torque 657 Nm / 485 ft lbs @ 4800 rpm BHP/Liter 71 bhp / liter Power to weight ratio 0.35 bhp / kg Top Speed N/A 7 liter motor pushing 505 at the crank at 6200 RPMS Displacement is a 427 let me say that again 427. Shelby's displacement 330? Making 500 horses at 3500 rpms? Im just wondering other then the weight factor how doesn't the shelby size up? They both go for 80k they both make 500 horse's and the cobra has a smaller displacement. 427 vs 330. I just want to know your views.
