2011 Mustang GT 5.0 vs BMW M3
Your doubt is understandable, but check the specs. For 2011, both rear-drive, four-seat coupes use all-aluminum V-8 engines with double-overhead camshafts tickling 32 valves. The M3's 4.0-liter carryover makes 414 horsepower at 8300 rpm and 295 pound-feet of torque at 3900 rpm. The Mustang's all new 5.0-liter V-8 cranks out 412 ponies at 6500 rpm and 390 pound-feet at 4250 rpm. But the most compelling number is 0.2: the difference in power-to-weight ratio between the two. The Mustang carries 8.8 pounds per pony to the M3's 8.6. And yet, at the test track, the 5.0 equals or betters the M3 in every performance category we measure. Both hit 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, but the Mustang is faster to the quarter mile by a tenth of a second and 0.7 mph-12.7 seconds at 111.6 mph. It also stops two feet shorter from 60 mph-a tie as far as we're concerned-and the GT really shatters the M myth on the skidpad. America's original ponycar manages to outgrip one of Germany's most iconic sports cars to the tune 0.2 second through our figure eight and by 0.01 g in lateral acceleration.

**ALSO, CHECK OUT MY OTHER VIDS AND SUBSCRIBE!!** 2012 Mustang GT 5.0 Automatic vs 2012 BMW M3 SMG (BOTH NEW AND STOCK) We were a little curious with two cars like this who would put the power to pavement in straight line drag races. We did try running from a stop, but only the Mustang could get traction, the BMW spun like crazy over and over, so we went from a roll to take traction out of the equation! Both cars are stock, the Mustang 6 speed automatic, and the BMW has 7 speed DCT transmission, both are V8's, and both make about 400 horsepower. The Mustang sticker price if $36,xxx, however the M3 is slightly less then DOUBLE the price of the Mustang, over $60,000! More vids to come, enjoy!
