The new 5.0 mustangs ('11 and up) are fast. The mustang was basically head to head with the M3 when tested by Motortrend. Take a look at the 1/4 mile race vid. Basically tied every time, but the mustang had a slight edge at the end of the day and won by 0.1 of a second. 12.7 @ 111.6 MPH compared to 12.8 @ 110.9 MPH. Here's the vid:
No doubt the Mustang is fast. I would have preferred to see a DCT M3 vs. either the automatic Mustang or their manual. I personally think the M3 would have come out ahead in the DCT guise.
