Actually It was inspired by the 1965 Shelby Cobra.

Why do they call it a 427 when it has a 305 cubic inch V8? Too much like a Cobra to wear the name 427 without an engine to match. Did I do the math wrong?

Ford was doing the same thing with the supercharged Mustang a few years back. They were calling it a "427", because they said it produced 427 HP. :lol:

Well can't be worse than the Calais 442... 4-cylinders, 4-Valves per Cylinder and 2 Camshafts.

I mean hey, we all drive 442s. :lol:
