    The only thing I don’t get, is how is getting 3200lbs 0 to 60mph in 1.52 seconds (info found on: mustangsdaily.com) with only 430Hp. The new Corvette Gran Sport can’t, the Nissan GTR Spec-V can’t. Porche can’t even do that. Heck, not even Bugatti can do that and they have over 1200hp in the newer Veyron SS.

    That’s like getting me to run a mile in under 5 minutes. I’m 200 lbs and can’t even run a full mile. I’m sorry, but that just sounds impossible. I mean come in, ive been to the drag races outside of town and I’ve seen guys with over 800hp and 2000lbs not be able to do that- that’s including the 300k they got under the hood.

    Whoever can prove how and show me a step-by-step process on how the transmission puts 3200lbs on the 1/4 mile in under 10 seconds with only 430hp is welcome to email me at tmullinsiii@hotmail.com
