I guess it would depend on exactly what you mean by keeping up, but to get the same power to weight ratio, you would need over 1000 hp unless the car has some serious weight reduction.

My 08 cbr 1000 when it was stock, was about 435lbs and made 175hp. 1/4 mile was right at 10.2 seconds, 0-60 in 2.8 seconds, and 0-100 in 5.4 seconds.

The only car that has ever been able to keep up with me on straight line acceleration was a 1300 hp zr1, and even then he couldn't pull away from me.
