"We're going to start off this week with an article about the thirty five hundred and I want to throw it over to use Smith because you've been writing about the GT five hundred a lot for us. So what's the news. It all boils down to something that originated really way back in two thousand three two thousand four with ESPN Cobra it's comparisons with with the GP five hundred against cars that you normally expect and There's Jason Committee that did A really outstanding video where he drove the GT five five hundred against The hell cat which okay. That's that's a pretty apples to apples comparison but then they took it on to a track with the Ferrari twelve super fast and end. And this one. This is the one that got me the most the Porsche nine eleven. Gt Three IRS And to give a little background Jason Camellias a friend of the site. He's written frost or or he's A. He's a veteran and he makes great video. This is amazing video just a production quality as well as the fact he got these. This trio of of really supercars to bring together to go against the GT five hundred so tell us tell us how did against each one at absolutely. Yeah if you haven't seen the video We've got the the article article motor wound with a link to his video I mean in short the GT five hundred is punching way above its weight class. I above way above At well we we should. We should clarify that way. Above in terms of handling because the GT five hundred never had a problem going fast in a straight line And and for this comparison it beats the hell cat. Okay which it handily beat thou cat like by on links it handily beating. Yeah well and and Jason points out in the video you know when you're not at a prep drag strip service which really the hell cat and especially the demon. Those cars are designed to launch hard from prepped drag strip surface in the real world. It's a little different and that video really showcases that and they did did they did it in the video on an airstrip. That wasn't a service. I think I think the demon drives dragster would win. Yes I oh yeah I I still think it would wind and Pretty easily just the way. That car launches. I mean it's it. Set Up to launch out of the whole Just having the horsepower is neat but that car is is really set up to launch the. Gt five hundred though is set up to accelerate pretty hard and handle and with bet carbon-fiber track back package that makes all the difference in the world I kind of glossed over the Ferrari. They did line up the GT. Five hundred with the eight twelve super fast doesn't quite the hang with for the Ferrari the Ferrari was was able to lodge a little bit better and the Ferrari held the lead over the GD five hundred but the Porsche folks were talking hit about nine eleven. Gt Three RS on a track driven by a professional racing driver. The Times where I think less than two hence of a second apart. That's gene five hundred verses one of the best handling production cars in the world right now it was. It was a virtual tie. I mean gene. Kelly was they if they had done two more laps than I'm I'm sure they did. They could have eked out a scenario where the five hundred would have been ahead now. Does that mean the GT. Five hundred is just absolutely carving the heck out of corners. It's it's doing pretty well but I mean let's be honest. Gt five hundred has tremendous horsepower. Advantage manage over over the poorest the GTS and what you're seeing is the GT five hundred really taking the portion. The straights the poorest coming back back to the GT five hundred in the corners but the GT. Five hundred still has enough in the coroner's to balance it out over the track and that's something that we've we've never seen from Mustang before it's crazy but we also we also wrote about another head to head matchup between the five hundred and the corvette tell us about that and and you know I remember this one and I even talk about it in the article a little bit back when the sat kober about three or four. That's that was kind of the first time where people people said. Wow can this Mustang actually hang with a corvette of course back then Chevrolet a drop. The camaro there really wasn't anything else to match the Mustang up against and and back then it was. Sat Cobra Against Corvette zero six apples to apples. That was the ultimate evolution of both models. Right there this This this comparison. It's the new. Gt five hundred with the carbon fiber tract package against the currency eight corvette which is of course we. We know the stingray. It's the entry level corvettes ourselves the basis. That really apples is not really apples to apples. But according to motor trend with that track pack Jack the Mustang the five hundred quicker around track. They didn't say how much they didn't list any time. So you have anything to go on there but you know you talking about a mid engine supercar really now against a school for an engine car. Yeah it was strange that they were so vague about the specifics. In you know definitely the the lap times of the GT five hundred versus the corvette but any other details. They left out so I I don't know why they do that. Maybe they're saving saving for a video or or one of their TV shows but and it is an apples to apples. You're right this is the fastest Mustang versus the slowest corvette. And we'RE GONNA be getting corvettes that that I'm sure we'll eclipse. Gt five hundred at some point. And I gotta say I mean I think everybody knows I'm kind of a Mustang Fan but I'm a performance fan too. I took a little exception to that. A psycho cades AIDS. This isn't really an apples to apples. Comparison I WANNA see now. What zero six? The new zero six will do against the five hundred that I don't. I don't think that's going going to be a comparison at all. That's I mean just listening to that thing with the you know in the eight are seen the are yeah. That's I can't wait for"
