Bricks can fly.

Your guess is as good as mine.

With 380hp and 450 pounds of torque what is stopping it should be the question.

I think the 2001 Lightnings use Brembo's.

The Lightning's top speed is 238 km/h.
I would like to put the Lightning's performance into some perspective. Based on Wheels Dec 01 World Top 50 fastest cars.
(0-400m) (0-100km/h) (kW) (Nm) (kg)
Commodore R8- 14.2 , 6.0 , 255, 475, 1670
GTS 300- 14.0, 5.9 300, 510, 1710
F-150 Lightning 13.8, 5.2, 283, 610, 2120
Camaro Z28 ss 13.7, 5.3, 242, 475, 1560
CSV Veloce 13.7, 5.5, 330, 550, 1660
Corvette 13.1, 4.8, 261, 508, 1460
Mustang Cobra R 13.0, 4.5, 287, 522, 1628
Corvette Z06 12.6, 4.4, 302, 542, 1414

Note that the last three times were based on 1/4 mile and 0-60mile.

But it gives you an idea that how fast the F-150 is and what the potential of a blown 5.4 in a Falcon that weighs 500 kg less.
600Nm or torque is colossal. No wonder they didn't offer a manual transmission.
Stop importing Ka's, Cougars and Cobra's and give us the LS1 eater.
