 It was a Supra.  Which regularly are in the 11's for the 1/4
and some in the 10's I believe.  That Charger at the end with
modern power would easily be Sub 10sec.  But in the movie it was
PORTRAYED as beign as His Father had left it.  IF thats true
were talking 70's tech, so it probably was in the 10's or 11's
as well.  Probably a pretty fair matchup.  At least fair enough
for the movie screen.
