you know... the 2010 SHO would really haul if it didn't weigh almost as much as a Sherman Tank...? that's my $0.02

it has the power, but it's too heavy to be a real contender...
love it, or hate it, but that's just MY opinion...

I did drive one of the first SHO's to hit Oregon, I did love the car, but not the price, $47k. I also fong the rev limiter at 6 gram a bit low, my 93's rev well past 7k.

The SHO was always pricey, my black 93 MTX car came with the window sticker in it, it was over $27000 new, not fully loaded. My red 93 ATX SHO has more on it, but did not get a window sticker with it.

I want one, bad!....even if it is heavy.
365 HP should push it as fast as most need plus AWD launches will give most sport cars a fit :)
Besides....I'm thinking there is a lot more performance to un-lock with a programmer or a chip.
6200 red line hmmph! I'll bet there's a big safety margin in there.

They also take to tunes like crack heads to crack.. CAI, exhaust and a tune and theyve been hauling come serious butt! Even the old SHO's are tanks.. My 94 has to weigh about 3400 with me in it.. and that with 220 or so HP. 47K is steep.. but you get a lot of car.. and all the 2010 owners at SHOforum.com are pretty happy with um! ;)

The 93 at 27,000, would be about the same as a 2010 at 47,000. It is high, but it takes the right person to buy one. I have not wieghed mine, did not know that they wieghed that much. But they have no problem running to ground almost any car out there.:devil:
