I would say the XR6 Turbo is the only BA there, maybe a V8 XT as a long shot, but I very much doubt it.

The Mustang Cobra R has a top speed of around 280 km/h, so it would be quite interesting to see what the GT could do.
The Cobra R has lower kerb weight on its side but the GT would be more aerodynamic. Although, like the other BA's it will probably be speed limited.

do they take the speed limiters off these things. I remember these articles but don't remember much. They wouldn't have used anything other than what is already released as we didn't have to prep any cars for them. The XR6T is limited to 230km/h, but if they take the limiter off they can do 260km/h+!!!
