Default 400 HP - hood decals

Down flame me - just asking.

Are there any hood decals out there that say "400 HP" - I have a silver C6 and I think it might look kind of neat to have a long black decal running along each side of the hood that says "400 HP" - kind of late 1960ish.

The only problem with the 400hp decal? What if you mod yours and has more than 400 hp?

That's truly because more accurately....with just a Corsa exhaust you might be up to 404 HP.

To the OP....try a good 'sign' shop....one that specializes in 'real' pin-striping on cars....they could paint it on or better yet, they could just do a computer cut-out vinyl decal for you (in case you decide you want to remove it).

400, or thereabouts, HP or CID displayed in the '60's was quite rare and just plain awesome.

Today it's tacky. Too many cars with those or higher numbers around.
Parked next to a new Z06 and it seems downright silly.
