Sure, they COULD mass produce a 1000 hp V8, but Venom could never pay all those taxes, pass all those smog tests, or have the money to make as many Ford does.

I wonder what monster they're making to commemorate his passing...

So there is a difference in a production car and a mass production car? There are a ton of GT500's because they're built by ford who has the money to make them.

But those 1000hp cars aren't mass produced.
Paul M Norberg Jun 12, 2012
There are several V8's producing over 1,000 hp, how is this the most powerful V8?
Jordan Smith Jun 12, 2012

At least the old man died smiling because he knows the GT5 is in good hands after he's gone!

Horsepower sells cars, torque wins races. I do believe Carroll Shelby said that.
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Jun 12, 2012
