Road Race: 700 HP Whipple Cobra vs Nissan GT-R

When Nissan launched the GT-R, they said that it wasn’t meant just to turn your liver into paste in a straight line, more to pull it out of your body in the corners. However, most people soon realized the GT-R has some of the most impressive launches of any road car out there, and with its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6, it can also keep up with supercars.
What Nissan also said is that you can’t tune the engine on the GT-R since it’s practically hack-proof. That soon proved to be wrong, and this car has an impressive 586 all-wheel-horsepower from just a remap and some bolt-ons.

That sounds like a lot of power for one car to put down on the road, but it’s up against a 2003-2004 Mustang SVT Cobra convertible which has received the 3.4-liter Whipple supercharger and offers 704 wheel-horsepower while running on e85 fuel.
