The Ford Mustang
is a brilliantly affordable source of horsepower, with a base 300-plus-horsepower version
available for well under $30,000. Jumping up to about $35,000 will get you a solid 420 horsepower from a high-revving V8
, while those with some extra disposable income can get a pair of 600-plus-horsepower monsters. Both the Roush Stage 3
with its Phase 3 package and Ford's
factory Shelby GT500
even crest the 650-horsepower mark, with 675 and 662 ponies, respectively.
Naturally, someone needed to find out which of these hi-po Mustangs
was the quickest. And while this video
is quite obviously a dealership
commercial, at least there's some solid drag racing between two of the most powerful performance machines available for under $100,000.
With two NHRA drag racers at the wheel, the Stage 3 and GT500 go head to head for three races. Scroll down below
to see the results in the full video.
