- this drag race is like running usain bolt against elton john and angus young!
- Where's the ZR1? Why throw in a Z06? They never compare the right cars against each other when they do these performance tests. And why isn't the Super Snake GT500 version of Shelby in this? Bring out the best to see who's really the fastest.
- Ford or Shelby should make a AWD mustang
- make them do a curve, then we see if they catch up.
- Couldn't agree more, and listen to that sound in the beginning! You couldn't even hear that GTR
- Lol.. Comparing a Car with AWD to RWD... Of course 0-60 is going to be faster, If that race was a little longer that vette would of smoked the living crap out of that pile of Junk.
- you are correct. i really got shocked when i receive my ipad3 without paying a dime @ my home yesterday. and i can tell u , email and your address is enough to get your iphone 5. i found it here => bit.ly/10cahdC?=ezrna
- American cars a rubbish!
- 3:15 badassest moment in life
- Is mustangs driver DRUNK???
Because Mustang is Muscle car it should start with burst of energy!
- This doesn't make any sense. Add $35k in upgrades to the Mustang, or bring in a $55k Corvette and Nissan.
- NEXT TIME PLEASE WAIT TILL THE 2012 OR SAME YEAR SHELBY COMES OUT BEFORE YOU RACE THEM.. It was so disappointing.. Run same year against same year... NOT 2012 against 2011... Clear disadvantage... AND WHEN WILL FORD RELEASE AN ALL WHEEL OR 4 WHEEL DRIVE MODEL??? Getting tired of million dollar import craps wining(getting free give away races simply because of all wheel drive)
- Happy with my GXP.
- either you want a car that helps you control it (gtr) or a car that needs you to control it(zo6) i choose zo6 grandma can have gtr to help stay on road
- The problem with the Giant Turd Racer is that if you have one people will see you driving it. So you can only drive it at night. Because Lord Knows you do not want to be seen driving this Foreign POS. We drive AMERICAN MUSCLE. If you love the foreign JUNK, MOVE TO THAT COUNTRY. Stop bringing that junk to AMERICAN SOIL.
- Just a few more months until I get my gtr :)
- ford/chevy needs to make an awd v8
- I'd like to see a rematch with the 2013/14 gt500 although I love GTR's
- no i wouldnt
- GT-R is king of the 0-60 and 1/4-1/2 mile runs. Personally, I would take the Z-06 out of these three. They are all fast, cool, and I cannot afford any of them!!!
- They shouldn't put the 662 hp one .Although it didnt come out I believe
- That gt500 sucks.
- Driver factor driver driver driver that is these sort of test are so stupid
