Odd Pairings

MotorTrend must be smoking something really strong because they decided to race a 2011 BMW M3 against that year’s Mustang GT from Ford. And I agree with The BMW Blog that if you asked me who would have won against the two a few months ago, I would have looked at you in shock and answered confidently: the BMW M3.

But the Mustang GT is a worth contender. In many respects, it bests the Bavarian beast in horsepower, torque, and and the all important 1/4 mile. But in their tests, the M3 beat the GT by nine-hundredths (0.09) of a second. The human eye can’t even tell the difference.

The Mustang did well for a car thats about $25,000 less than the German import.
