If it's 230hp it's probably the SHO and it's curb weight is 3600lbs. giving it a power to weight ratio of 0.064

Your car, assuming you have a stock GT, has about 130hp and a curb weight of 2500lbs. giving you a power to weight ratio of 0.052

So you'll need another 40hp to beat him....

Being a Ford Taurus, it will probably brake down when he goes off the line.  :D

So did you end up racing him?</font>
