    What can I say, a $35,000 monster competing with the best of them. Outperformed the other two in the slalom, 0-60 and quarter mile. Of course the other two cars have the creature comforts and gadgets that the mustang doesnt have, and i guess they are easier to live with.

    Actually, the other two cars outperformed it in the slalom. But yeah, overall a pretty interesting comparo between very disparate vehicles.

    LOL, you think a Mustang could go as fast as a BMW in the slalom??? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/grin.gif"></A> I admit, that was a decent speed, but the Mustang has no chance.

    but how much does the bmw cost???
     
  5. Re: Test pic: some results from Motor Trend

    As-tested price of that M3 was $55,695. A base M3 starts at $49,900.

    LOL..do you think you can understand what you read? LOL LOL...its funny isnt it

    Yep, the numbers don't lie, Mustang faster at what it's designed for - straight line acceleration, M3 better at what it's designed for - handling.

    That SVT did exceptionally well for it's design, I'd like to see it on a REAL road that's NOT level, then the separation between slalom speeds would show a huge gap.

    oh....wait, do you still think the SVT was faster in the slalom? look again....66mphM3 vs 64mphSVT....hmmmmm

    Sorry for the outburst...I was actually making fun at myself, cause I misread it, and you corrected me. How well will the new mustangs do on the slalom with the dew-lite suspension.
