  1. It would need 100 ps power more for a mustang to cover that gap but i will stop amd appreciate ford to provide such beautiful affordable sports car to us..it use to be a first crush for the growing kids like me

  2. Rs is regular sport car…but Gt is awesome with that stuuning looks…also expert can enjoy its thrill…its different car .

    Compare with audi the Gt is less power 50 hp and torque and more weight by 70kgs, 6speed at but audi is 8 speed all wheel drive but the gt gaps between..1.2 sec only..really gt is done superb job.

  3. on the Mustang you can add a supercharger good for 600+ hp without trouble, smoke all AUDI´s with ease…..the Audi you only can chip but it will loose power over time much earlier than this Mustang V8 !! greetings from germany and 20 years of owning AUDI´s.

  4. X^D. bahhahaahahaha. the Audi costs $92,000. The Mustang… barely $47,000.
    Hilarious comparison!!

    How about a Roush Mustang ($75k) 750hp and RS5

    Or the S5 ($51k) vs the GT $47k)

  5. Just smoked a 5.0gt in my 4.2V8 Audi RS4 the other night. By 2 cars. That’s a good comparison if we are talking similarities in engines and power output.

  6. This is kind of lame… the Audi is turbo and AWD, hence better hook up. The Mustang was a plane Jane 5.0… Put it up against a GT500 and watch that Audi get eaten alive! 🤣
