A LaFerrari doesn't compete with this. Hell, even a 488 will kick this car's ass.

Wonder if the GT500 will keep the live axle that gave earlier versions such an amazing authentic character.

Still a GT500 with the GT TT 650 bhp V6 and a 150-200bhp electric motor would be awesome. MT when testing the 918 compared the effect of an electric motor to nitrous. The GNX is a V6 more legendary than many V8's.

Nah the 500 is coming, And with huge power, A 5.0+L Sc V8, No official output number yet, Some say as high as 850bhp, I dont think it will be THAT much, But will have more then the HellCat, And some sources say it may even have a TT V6, But ill be damned if that happens and will go raid Ford myself.

Just assumption. Since in 5th gen they only build GT500 as their top model but no GT350.


User avatar

....Why would you think they would stop at the 350?

M4 spank a 350R? LOL

Of course it would; always has and always will. It's more than just metrics, but even looking at the metrics you can see the current-gen M3 is just as quick if not quicker all around.

http://fastestlaps.com/models/bmw-m3-competition-package-f80

Drive the two and the difference becomes more apparent.

There is a reason Ford publicly benchmarked, told you (paid the car magazines) to compare this car directly to the M3. It's because the M3 is a better car. Period.

Doesn't the M3 now have four doors


User avatar

BR2+  9m ago

Thats because its an amazing car thats getting amazing reviews, Plus its still new and reminiscent of the past of the great muscle era, SO of course its gonna get a mark up, Which new n awesome performance car doesnt, And please tell me how an M4 would spank this in every way?..


User avatar

Raffi  9m ago

I will never know how good is a mustang 350 R as they have a 50k mark up on them 140 plus for a mustang cdn. You can buy a m4 with the competition pkg that would spank the mustang in every witch way.

@BR2+ We are talking about street legal car right? I still can't think of any practical mods for the Z28. Without major powertrain and suspension mods, I believe Z28 is as extreme as it is. Yes, you can further lighten the car by moding the interior and lighter chassis component, maybe a carbon fiber driveshaft as well. But hey, GT350 can also do the same, but with much more mods. Anyway, if you want to do track only, GT350 may be the better choice. The track part for Mustang is easier to find than Camaro. Back to tires, I doubt that you try the tires yourself. information on forum can be deceiving. Most people just can't drive to the limit to notice the difference in tires, and don't even talk about slip angle and characteristic of tires. One of my buddy was struggling with his lap time. He ran re71r for the few months and lap time can't improve, so he blamed the tires like most people did and got a new set of cup2. Guess what, he ain't get any faster And their is another friend, who used trofeo r for his c7, ruined it by not knowing how to drive it properly, understeer the crap out of the front tires. From my own experience and experience from real track people, trofeo r is just that much faster than cup2. At gingerman and grattan raceway, I see around 1.5 and 1 second improvement on trofeo r depend on cars. And I just found a test on youtube as well, should be referential even it's an ad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrLQpAt5Mes

Previous comparisons put the trofeo R very high but people forget about tire size, which is equally important for mechanical grip. The gt350r front tires are like 305s? I'd hate to do a U turn in this car but those monster tires won't be much less than those on the z28


User avatar

BR2+  1y ago

Isnt much to improve? Theres a shite load to improve, There isnt a single car on this planet that couldnt improve exponentially, And The age old discussion about Trofeos be that much more better for the track, Is actually ALOT closer then you think.


User avatar

JamesL  1y ago

Z28 has way better brake and tires. Trofeo R is way faster than Cup 2. Such tires combo with CCB is some serious s**t. Most importantly, there isn't much to improve with this gen's Z28. On the other hand, GT350R has way much more potential, and laps time prove that. Yes, next gen's Z28 will crush ever opponent when it comes out. But as always, mustang's chassis is still the best choice for guys that mod their car and go to track.

H2H faster by more than a second than them z/28


User avatar

BR2+  2y ago

I dunno, But again maybe its handling qualities are just that much better, Maybe its suspension is just honed better for the track, Maybe its brakes are better, Even the littles improvement on a section can mean a major gain. I dont see it being that much faster or any at all either, But i just cant say, Nothing about this but driver reviews is out, But 200lbs less weight, Which is prolly more like 300lbs given the 5.0 is 93lbs lighter then the last. Maybe in this car the driver confidence is just that much better and less scary that your able to push the car harder, Brake sooner, Go faster in top speeds, Push it harder thru the corners, I dunno.

And againg, WHen it comes to Ring times theres a ton of variables, Driver, Time, Setup, Motive etc Prolly insurance too, I also dont know what the aero part of the GT350R is capable of, But it produces more downforce then any Ford ever has excluding the new GT, The most track focused mustang ever, Hell the Boss 302 was on par with an M3 GTS, And this represents much more then the previous, Again, I dunno if itll be faster, But in this day and age, What may seem faster...Isnt always the case, Just ask the ZO6 and GTR...

That's just it, though. Consider what EVERY review of the Z28 has said about it. In the handling department, it doesn't get much better than that for a RWD car, in any class, at any price point. I mean really, Motor Trend had it as their Best Driver's Car last year. I just don't see anything that would justify the 350R being more than a second or two(if that)faster around any track, the 'Ring included. The 350R's only on-paper advantages are 10mm wider rear tires, 21 more horsepower and 200lbs less weight. We don't know what the aero package does for it, but I can't imagine it's any better than the Z28, so let's call that a wash. We don't know the weight distribution, either, but they Z's is 52/48, and I doubt the 350R is beating that by much, if at all. But we do know about the brakes, and the 350R would be lucky to be the Z's equal there. The Z's brakes were so powerful that they spun the tires completely around the wheels when GM was testing the car. Brakes literally do not get better than what the Z28 has, even in million-dollar cars. The Z also has larger brakes in the rear, 15.4 inches to the 350R's 14.9(though I think they round up to 15), and they're identical up front at 15.5in. And then there's the suspension. Magneride is a GM invention to begin with, and if it was superior to the Z28's F1-style suspension, GM would've used it.

Even at the 'Ring, a 5+sec gap represents two completely different classes of car, and I don't see anything supporting that right now.

I dont know how many they have done, But lapping the car, Then having "record" or "rival" attempts would be different, They go round the ring and tweak there car for the best setting feel, Liquids and what not, But the number of actual attempts are limited, Specially if there gonna push it, Given the driver.

I also dont see much difference in it being that fast, But the overall handling quality may be much better, Gives you more confidence to push the car both in high speeds and round corners, And the brakes just may be better, Theres no way in hell it will be slower in acceleration, So that can make up a few, As far as the handling goes, I dunno, The Z/28 is as fast as a GT3 round a track, Anywhere between a half second to 2s, And look at how far apart there Ring times are for those 2, So, It being the Nordeschliefe, The times will vary, Although i cant say for other tracks.


User avatar

CoolShirtGuy  2y ago

But more to the point, look at other cars on the list that could be considered direct performance competitors, or "Rivals". Those cars are often have just a few tenths of a second separating them, or at the most a couple full seconds. The 350R's alleged time is up there with the 911 Turbo S, and there are FAR more differences between the 911 Turbo S and the Z28, than there are between the Z28 and the 350R. I'm just not buying it, as there's nothing I can see that justifies a 5sec ass-kicking.


User avatar

CoolShirtGuy  2y ago

Actually, it's said that Jim Mero alone has done well over 1000 laps at the 'Ring, and that was back when the ZR1 was doing its thing, so who knows how many he's done at this point. Between Chevy and Cadillac, GM used to practically live there; I believe they're the only American company to have their own on-site garage at the 'Ring. So they don't do the minimum of anything. On the day the lap is done there may only be a handful of attempts, but before that there are dozens, maybe even hundreds.

By all regards given the first drive reviews, If anything just from what i have been hearing, 5s seems a little too slow. The much added aero, Although i doubt its as downforcy as the Z/28s, But still quite good,Great brakes, But i doubt those are as good too, It also uses bespoke MPSC2 tyres, Which are the same size up front as the Z/28, 305, But bigger in the rear at 315, But i think its more of how everything works together. But lets be honest, The next Z/28 will destroy every Mustang.


User avatar

BR2+  2y ago

I agree thats what Ford aimed for, And usually when manufakturs do that, its always what they say, Or get said results.

But the Ring is also an 8 mile course, So 5s isnt as impressive as it may seem. Chevrolet is known to take minimum laps when recording a car round the Ring, I believe the C6 ZO6 had around 7 if im not mistaken, Plus im actually not sure if that 7:32 is actually by Ford as rumor would have it. But from what i have been hearing as of late, The GT350R is a spectacular car


User avatar

CoolShirtGuy  2y ago

If it doesn't outperform the Z28 then it would fail at its reason for existing. The Z28 has been out for a few years now, and it's specs are all known quantities. I'm sure Ford even bought a couple Z28s to test their prototypes against during development. They know exactly what they have to beat, so if they fail, there is absolutely no excuse. I'm not saying the 350R won't be faster than the Z28, it damn well should be. I'm just saying it won't be THAT much faster. 5 seconds? Come on, now.


User avatar

BR2+  2y ago

Id say this has an extremely good chance on beating a Z/28 in all aspects, Not saying it will, But theres a good chance it will. It does have a bit less torque, And a few horses more, But its better geared, And will be faster in acceleration, Theres a chance it may have more downforce too, I certainly cant say, But my guess is it will be faster, Ford is gunning for that car, Which is kinda weird since its outta production.


User avatar

CoolShirtGuy  2y ago

Yeah, I'm gonna say there's no way in hell the GT350R is over five full seconds faster than the Camaro Z28. It's only got 21 more horsepower, and about 50 less lb-ft of torque. Tires and aero are effectively a wash, though the Z28 may have the advantage by virtue of having wider rubber. The biggest thing the 350R has going for it is that it weighs some 200lbs less than the Z28. But that damn sure isn't worth five seconds with everything else being roughly equal.
