I sold my turbo charged srt8 jeep today, and wish to return to where my need for speed all began. I know I want one of three cars... trying to stay in a certain price range. 07' gt500 1500 miles, a 08' sc281 1 OF 24 made 3000 miles, or a 07' sc281 speedster with 7900 miles. Whatever I buy I will mod to do a 11.7 or better.... just enough to beat a friends vette. I like the looks of the saleen better than the cobra, but unsure of which will be more costly to upgrade - what are your opinions?

The GT 500 can easily make 11.5 or better with very little mods. Evolution Performance has one running in the 9's.

The cobra will be a lot more cost effective because of the 5.4. You can always play with the body panels.

Not that you are getting biased opinions on a GT500 board, but it seems a no brainer. Saleen is a defunct brand, and the world has moved on. They won't command the astronomical prices they once did. Their number was up the day the first SVT Terminators were released.

Do you think you'd ever want to sell it? If so, buy the GT500. Buying a Saleen is like rolling and smoking your money
