What we have here. US vs Europe! We have the BMW M3, one of the best sports car that Germany made, and the new Ford Mustang Gt, a car that has allot of potential !
The fourth generation BMW M3 was announced on the 2007 Geneva Auto Show. Just as the previous M3 generations all introduced a completely new engine, the fourth generation M3 did the same: the BMW S65 engine was introduced.
This S65B40 is a naturally aspirated, high revving 4-litre V8 (based on the S85B50 5-litre V10 that powers the E60/E61 M5 and the E63/E64 M6 to date), delivering 414 bhp (309 kW; 420 PS) at 8,300 rpm, with peak torque at 400 N·m (300 lb·ft) at 3,900 rpm, which represents a power increase of 22% over the E46 M3.
Talking about the new Ford Mustang GT, well, at the 2004 North American International Auto Show, Ford introduced a completely redesigned Mustang, codenamed “S-197,”
Ford announced on December 28, 2009 that the 2011 Mustang GT would feature a 5.0 engine (302.15 cid (4.951 L)) that produces 412 horsepower (307 kW) and 390 lb·ft (530 N·m) of torque on “premium fuel” (gasoline with a pump octane rating of 91); on “regular fuel” (gasoline with a pump octane rating of 87), these numbers fall to 402 hp (300 kW) and 377 lb·ft (511 N·m).
The new Ford 5.0-liter V8 “Coyote” engine has a 32-valves (4-valves per cylinder) with Twin Independent Variable Cam Timing (TiVCT). These cams control intake and exhaust functions of the vehicle to maximize combustion.
Whos the best? Let’s see…
