Ferrari 458 Vs. 1965 Shelby Cobra with $400,000 on the Line!
Meet Dan Bilzerian and Tom Goldstein, two very enthusiastic and competitive exotic sports car owners. On March 9th, 2011, the men met at the Las Vegas Speedway for a very special supercar challenge: Bilzerian’s tricked-out 1965 427 Shelby Cobra Vs. Goldstein’s Ferrari 458 Italia in a tense quarter-mile race—winner takes $400,000! That is almost 2 brand new Ferrari 458’s! I will not give away the winner–watch the brief video below!
Bilzerian woke a few weeks back to a message from popular UFC commentator Joe Rogan alerting him to the fact none other than Lance Armstrong was happy to give him some one-on-one training ahead of his ride.

Crazy as it sounds, there are just people that have nothing better to do with their money than waste it away on a meaningless drag race between an American classic and an Italian thoroughbred. Yep, you read the title right, too: a $400,000 bet to see which car is faster in a quarter-mile run.
What Dan Bilzerian really thinks of women
But there is one way in this country in which all men are created equal—there is one human institution that makes a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller, the stupid man the equal of an Einstein, and the ignorant man the equal of any college president. That institution gentlemen, is a court. It can be the Supreme Court of the United States or the humblest JP court in the land, or this honourable court which you serve. Our courts have their faults as does any human institution, but in this country our courts are the great levelers, and in our courts all men are created equal.
