Ford Mustang GT 5.0--2012 Test Drive Video Review with Chris Moran from Chicago Motor Cars

http://www.SupercarNetwork.com An up-close test drive and review of the new 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 with Chris Moran. Vehicle courtesy of the Webb Boys at Packey Webb Ford in Downers Grove. Stop in and see them! By Chris Moran from Chicago Motor Cars Let's recap: The 2010 Ford Mustang hit dealers about a year ago with comprehensive upgrades to its styling, quality, suspension and brakes, but not its power trains, which have remained largely unaltered since 2005. There was a crappy, 4.0-liter 210 HP V6 no one but teenage girls and rental fleets bought and then there was the old-as-nails 4.6-liter V8 which made only 315 HP. That V8 was fun to use and sounded great, but as soon as the new 426 HP Camaro SS showed up last summer, Ford was left eating Chevy's dust. Making things worse, the Camaro also comes with a V6 which makes 304 HP, nearly as much as the old Mustang GT's V8. Sadly (for Ford at least) engine development didn't keep up with model development and last year's Mustang wasn't as fast as it needed to be. For 2011, the Mustang is coming with a fitting tribute to its founder — Donald Frey — who died earlier this weekend — two new engines: a 3.7-liter V6 using variable inlet and Exhaust valve timing to achieve both big power and torque figures - 305 HP and 280 Lb-Ft - but also impressive fuel economy - 31 MPG highway/19 MPG city with the 6-speed automatic transmission. The 5.0-liter Coyote V8 uses the same technology to make 412 HP and 390 Lb-Ft, but still manages a respectable 26 MPG highway/ 17 MPG city. The Coyote V8's headline power figure is still a bit shy of the Camaro LS3's 426 HP and 408 Lb-Ft number, but the Ford is a useful 255 Lbs lighter than the Chevy. That actually gives the Mustang GT a slightly superior power-to-weight ratio of .114 HP per pound to the Camaro SS's .110 HP per pound figure. Rednecks of the world rejoice, the 2011 Ford Mustang GT is now faster in a straight line than the Chevy Camaro SS. Driving Ford legal department-mandated six-speed slushbox-equipped cars, I ran an 86.85 MPH 1/8th mile in the Mustang and an 80.15 MPH run in the Camaro. A lot of the Mustang's advantage is due to lower gearing, as indicated by its 2.165-second 60-foot time despite my laggardly .420-second reaction time. Compare it to the Camaro's 2.549-second 60-foot time despite a better .243-second reaction time. The Ford launches much harder than the Chevy, easily lighting up the rear tires if you switch the traction control off, something the auto-equipped Camaro really hates doing. So that's it, right? The Mustang is now faster than the Camaro in a straight line and it was already arguably more fun to drive. The Mustang wins the Muscle Car Wars, story over. But Ford didn't stop there, it also comprehensively updated the 2011 Mustang's suspension, brakes and other running gear, not only to keep up with the new-found speed, but to improve the driving experience too. Let's start with the V6, in fact, let's start with the bottom-of-the-range $22,145 V6 equipped with lilliputian 17-inch wheels and a six-speed manual transmission. In addition to the new engine, it's been upgraded with Electric Power Assist Steering (EPAS), firmer dampers and springs all round, new lower control arms for the live rear axle and thicker anti-sway bars with bushings now bolted to the bar to control its movement more effectively. The 3.7-liter engine now makes this a genuinely quick car. Ford refuses to quote an official 0-60 MPH time, but indicates 5.5 seconds wouldn't be a bad guess. In action, the six-cylinder feels a lot like an asthmatic version of the old V8. Making its peak 305 HP at 6,500 RPM and its peak 280 Lb-Ft of torque at 4,250 RPM it's got plenty of flexibility for easy day-to-day progress, but you need to be bouncing off the 7,000 RPM limiter regularly to make real progress.

2013 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 is one of America's greatest and perhaps most enduring muscle cars. Ford will say that the Mustang is America's very first muscle car and they might be right. For 2013 Ford has opted the horsepower of the Mustang GT 5.0 to 420 HP making it one of the most powerful GT cars that you can buy in almost 50 years of continuous Mustang production. The recipe for a muscle car is simple. Stick a massive V8 engine into a rear drive two door car that seats four and let the tire smoke begin. In this video we review the latest Mustang muscle to see what almost $41,000 of Ford tire shredding V8 Mustang muscle drives like.





Top Gear testing a Mustang shelby GT500
Starting in 2008, previous 2007 Shelby GT500 Mustangs could be sent to Carroll Shelby's Special Performance Plant in Las Vegas to be rebuilt into a Super Snake, which resembles the 1968 GT500KR, for an additional cost of $27,995. The Super Snake will offer a 605 hp 5.4LEaton roots type supercharged version with warranty. A Kenne Bell twin-screw supercharged version with "over 725 hp" will also be available, without warranty and a 0-60 time of under 4 seconds.[1][2] The Super Snake is inspired by the 1967 GT500 Super Snake, a car made by Carroll Shelby for Goodyear Tires Automobile racer Carroll Shelby transformed a conventional Mustang into a serious track racer designated as the "GT-350". The fastbacks were shipped from the San Jose, California assembly plant and fitted with a "Hi-Po" 289, 4-speed manual transmission, and included front disc brakes and heavy duty rear drum brakes. Additionally, shortened hoods and deleted rear seats with identifying trim were among the visual variations. These select Mustangs were converted to street, road racing, and drag cars in Shelby's plant at Los Angeles International Airport
