I can take your car out and drive it like an old nanny and confirm actually your car is very slow.

Different tests have different results.

Zero to 60 is actually 4.3 seconds, quarter-mile is 12.1 @ 115

Edit: I could not find a reference to the 3.9s 0-100kph (~3.5s 0-60mph) time or to the 12.0@116 1/4-mile number. In fact a GT500KR-vs-Z06 video back in 2008 showed 12.8@114 for the Mustang.

this car is awesome but does anybodyt think its worth the $80,000 price?? and any guesses onits ring time?

Dude theres no way this badboy would match the GT-R's laptime if it had that suspension. Maybe if it had KW suspension and semi-slick tires and F1 style paddle shifters, then Maybe..MAYBE!!

You know travelling at high speeds with the slightest of bumps not only slows you down but can also throw you off the track which is why all racing cars have an independant suspension and that bothers me because i like the mustang and i would bet this car would have matched the GTRs lap time if it did have a proper suspension which i do not understand why they have not made ONE MUSTANG with a proper suspension?????

There is a lap time for the GT500KR, under the Laguna Seca track. On this site, it's incorrectly listed as a base GT500.


User avatar

one of the reason could be because its very rare. i think somewhere aroun 1736 mybe?

Why is there no track times for any mustang? Because they do not make a track that goes in a straight line!!

Word, some times racing/driving is more than just a twisty track...

I cannot believe there is someone ignorant enough to believe all cars have to made to go through a road course.

who cares, look at the zo6 and its suspension, its whooopin cars 3 times its price, in a straight line AND around a track, so STFU, it doesnt matter as long as it gets the job done.

I cannot beleive anybody is leaving a comment about a car whos suspension is only found in a museum. Even a plain old honda civic hadles better than this piece of crap!

So was the 205mph at Nardo on the high speed bowl or a long straight?


User avatar

PhantomPorsche  10y ago

Was it a one way test or a two way test? But still either way thats fast.


User avatar

Riice  10y ago

yes it was stoc it was straight out of the factory ive ben in a stock rgular gt500 that hit 192 the guy i was talking bout van hes a test driver for top speeds and (like a secret service kinda guy..lol) the kr hit 205 and i reckon th ss will hit 210 or so. i mean i cant really prove it but hey thats what i know.

the Nardo. youve prolly herd of it. i was in the passanger seat starpped tight and was drivin by a dude and close friend named Van Ripplinx (he's swiss)(he also drives a detomaso pantera. anyhoo it was an expierence. i havent seen a single mustang over there yet. but it was a nice trip, i was there on official car BUISNESS; with my associate) Its the 3rd fastest iv eva ben van's got some good shit.lol


User avatar

PhantomPorsche  10y ago

Well weight was not my problem but the aerodynamics. The Ford GT500 only achieved 176mph having 500hp and I dont think 33hp more can bump up the top speed by 24mph. Riice was your car stock?


User avatar

Wads  10y ago

Riice which track did you try it on?


User avatar

Riice  10y ago

this infact does 205 but it limited to 170. i have ben in one straight out of the factory and hit the track and we achieved 205 on the speedo. you dont have to believe me but thats my story on this bad boy. although id rather have the 210 mph super snake;)

mustang arent slow. and weight has nothing to do with top speed.


User avatar

PhantomPorsche  10y ago

Is there a reference for the 200 mph top speed? Just asking. I find it hard to believe a car this big can do 200 mph.


User avatar

Anonymous  10y ago

they r not limited they are just slow this one sure isn't tho


User avatar
