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.
