Here are some fast cars' power to weight ratios: (HP : Pounds)
Bugatti Veyron - 1 : 4.2
Bugatti Veryon SS - 1 : 3.5
TVR Cerberra Speed 12 - 1 : 2.9
McLaren F1 - 1 : 4.0
Hennesy Venom GT - 1 : 2.2
SSC Ultimate Aero TT (the one in forza) - 1 : 2.2

There is an even more insane Ultimate Aero called the Ultimate Aero XT and it has 1300 hp instead of 1287. The power to weight is still 1 : 2.2.

1 : 5.2. He put a 454 in it and a new carburetor and a new camshaft so it produces 605 hp! In a 69 corvette convertible.

You can tell because he would floor it for a split second and you'd practically get a concussion from how hard your head hits the seat! The things got masses of torque.
