I believe power output was 435 horsepower on these cars. Top speed was probably like 174 mph, there's no way in hell this thing could go 186 as advertised

186 mph is exactly 300 km/h so it was probably an estimated top speed by the manufacturer.

I mean it is light with a lot of power, and it could go quite fast, but it isn't the fastest car of the 60s. That'd be the Bill Thomas Cheetah.

@ Mental: So it offered the best of both worlds, the excellent handling of a European sports car, and the raw power of an American muscle car, I like it.

@Shaggy
Yeah, I remembered: this was claimed as one excellent handling supercar, so this one was special - a lux GT and a serious track/drag beast.

@ Mental: That 7.0 liter big block engine is something serious. Even though American muscle cars didn't handle well, they had the most powerful automobile engines in the world at that time, so it's no surprise that European sports car manufacturers wanted to put American engines in some of their cars. Examples: Facel Vega, Jensen Interceptor, DeTomaso Pantera, and most famously AC Cobra.

An even more monsterous version of the Iso Grifo. The huge 427 engine was taken from the Vette. That was furiously fast, Ferrari-fighter. Even American muscles had to be beware of this brutal majesty.

Top speed - 275 hph; 0-60 mph - 6.1 sec; 1/4 mile - 13.9 sec.
