200 MPH - Power Required?

How much HP do you think it would take to get a stock body
SN95 to 200mph??

I know it's pretty much a pipe dream but I would like to run
the Texas Mile in a year or two. Would 600whp do it? Or is
a mile to short a distance to get to 200mph with that kind of
Horse Power?

I'd say over 800rwhp, Lamborghini's hit 200mph with 700hp but there RPMs go up to 14,000rpms

MM&FF did a build up for this, takes 600 rwhp to break 200mph, with correct gearing but for the standing mile its more like 1000 fwhp.
Its also a fox not sure what the weight/aerodynamic differences are between the 2.
