Despite the economic crisis and the ongoing push for environmental friendliness, man continues to push the boundaries of on-road performance. It wasnít that long ago that a 500 horsepower car was considered top notch, but over the past few years this magic number has become commonplace and downright affordable - Fordís Shelby GT500 for instance, retails for less than $55,000. Nowadays, the bar has been raised to 1,000 horsepower. But vehicles with four-figure horsepower ratings arenít as uncommon as you might think. Meet fifteen official members of the 1,000 horsepower club by watching the slideshow.

This isn't fair. Characters in Final Fantasy can't join the club, 'cuz they have a maximum of 999 hp.
