BMW M3 Coupe owners and Ford Mustang GT owners alike have wondered time and time again (or we’d like to think so) how would a toe-to-toe clash between the two end up. Would the silver stallion come on top or would it be humbled by the M3 Coupe? The guys at MotorTrend decided to answer this question and on a racetrack, of all places. For this US vs Germany (or Europe) head-to-head battle they put up the 2011 Ford Mustang GT against the 2011 BMW M3 Coupe.
In the (blue) US corner, the 2011 Ford Mustang GT packed a 6-litre V8 engine, sporting 412 hp coupled with a 6 speed manual gearbox. In the (red) German corner, the 2011 BMW M3 Coupe also featured a V8 engine, but with two more horsepower and 4 litres, together with a 6 speed manual gearbox.
We won’t spoil the results to you, as maybe you can surely imagine what the outcome would be like, just to say that one was 0.1 seconds faster (or slower) than the other. Check out the video bellow of the confruntation. Once again, hats off to MotorTrend and congratulations.
