I wish both were completely tested, putting in a massive production. Though, the verdict can be not very correct. The Vette would win the drag race, but I think Cobra would have an advantage at curvy tracks.

@ Super8: Wow, that's a lot closer than I expected! The LT2 Corvette won by a nose, I expected it to blow the Shelby Cobra's doors, hood, and trunk lid off. Good match up.
