That's a 2010-2012 GT500. Not a 2013 GT500. Rear and front shows that. That GT500 might around 550-560whp.

If its a true "full bolt on" car that number will be higher then that.

The blown Viper apparently had 677whp and couldn't pull the ZR1?

Gotta love the No-Lift Shift feature on the ZR1. It makes anyone look like a professional!

Blown Gen IIIs just don't run as hard as the numbers would indicate - by the time you are making that kinda power, you have to shift to the next gear, and the power drop with that gear change is huge since it puts you back in the RPM band where there is little boost. Tony (Nine Ball) has documented this with his own supercharged Viper.

This video kinda shows what I'm talking about - the camera car is the blown Gen III, and the one in the right lane is a bolt-on, geared Gen IV (probably around 580-590 RWHP)...by the time the Gen III starts pulling back, it has to shift.
