I looked on Motortrend's site and per their tests the B-Suxx 2013 Mustang is about 1 second faster throught the quarter mile, a few hundredths better in the lateral G measure and a bit quicker through their test "figure 8" track.
The point is in numerical categories this thing is not fukking special. You can't be jealous of a $25000 car unless it's in the early 70s and a Lambo Miura drives by.
Cool, it handles decent and it's not really fast, which makes it seem to handle better than it does.
Read the motortrend 28k comparison. Pobst says a ton of negative stuff about the mustang despite it winning the best time. It sounds like it was the least FUN to drive of the set and that the mustang was soft and uninspiring....
and Pobst is usually proclaiming that cars are too stiff.
