Damn im loving the new 2011 mustang, especially the V6 model. I like the new V8, but that 6 sounds good and it's lighter and probably perform better on a road track than the slightly heavier V8...
What aftermarket mods?They say the V6 feels more floaty. Nothing beats the 5.0 for aftermarket mods too.
I don't know about blowing the Camaro off the map...Ford seems to be on a roll lately, and IMO these new engines throw the Camaro and Challenger off the map, live axle or no live axle...
From Car & Driver:I don't know about blowing the Camaro off the map...
It at the least, puts it in the same league as the Camaro and maybe the Genesis coupe.
2011 Ford Mustang V6 - Short Take Road Test - Auto Reviews - Car and DriverStrapped with our test gear, we spurred a new V-6 Mustang with the standard six-speed manual to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 14 flat at 104 mph... the 3520-pound Mustang V-6 is 0.5 second quicker than the 3800-pound Chevy Camaro V-6 in both measures...and the Ford also outruns the slightly lighter and more powerful Hyundai Genesis V-6 coupe.
I'm not convinced by a run from Car and Driver on a pre-production model.From Car & Driver:

From other sources, the V8s are the same story: The 5.0 has a 0.2-0.5 seconds advantage from 0-60, and similar times in the 1/4-mile.
It's all in the weight, in which the Mustangs have a 350-400 lb. advantage over the bow-ties, which is quite significant. C&D also picked the '10 Mustang over the Camaro and Challenger (here) based on it's handling merits, which seems to have improved further for '11.
No kidding. That's about the cheesiest shit seen in a looooong time. 2 years at least.....But wtf with the back bumper? Did they run out of paint? Just leave it plain black plastic! That's classy Classy like a base model Cavalier bumper.
:lol:Spaz - I think Mazda also ran out of paint when they were painting the back bumper of my speed 6 lol...
I'm not going to go looking for it, but didn't someone here buy a G-35 coupe and then removed the painted bumper filler to swap-on the NON painted piece......Yeah that's totally the lamest shit ever haha flamers...wait...hey now!
What sucks hard is how fucking expensive that plastic is on our cars.
