Ford Lightnings, Harley F150s, Cobras and even that crappy Ford GT all are running water/air intercooler systems. Some of the others you might consider are the AMG Mercedes like the S55, E55 or others. British cars have also joined in this with Jaguar's XJR or XKR. In AU the Holden Commodore is available with a water/air intercooler.

The Ford system (whatever your thoughts of domestic cars) has been proven to have capacity for short bursts of 700hp with nearly minimal change in output air temperatures. I'm not making an argument for one over the other as the air/water certainly has issues but for a street application where there is more time off boost than off it works well. In racing applications the water is going to saturate in temperature and loose its effectiveness versus air/air.
