Thanks Dust Devil.

I love those GT-Rs. But if I had been betting money, I would probably have put it on the Z06. I guess I would have lost my money, huh?

My money for 1/4 mile would be the Mustang with the Boss 302...Rated for high 10s with a professional driver at the drag-strip from the factory...All the others except the Chevy Corvette are for the Germany's autobahn....

I too would have lost... "The race was fixed"...Lol...!!!

The Laguna Seca Boss is a straight beast on the track as well. That things scoots in all aspects of driving. By far the best overall mustang made. But if you want to see the fastest stang that is considered factory check out the new Shelby GT350. Straight line drag that is the fastest production stang ever made.

Any Mustang with the name Shelby means "This is Fast"...

Especially with the big block 429 over head cam motor or 427 AC cobra motor in a Mustang...

2012 Shelby GT350...."NICE"...!!!!!!

The new Mustangs w/the 5.0 are crazy fast no matter what...but you have to realize the poor comparison they're making here. The GT500 would have been more of a fair match up and it still would have been the cheapest car in the shootout by a long shot. The Z06 would have won it if the driver hadn't of roasted them for the first hundred feet. And the comment about them just being made for the Autubahns is just being a narrow minded American. All of these cars except the Mustang are made to perform in every aspect, not just a straight line. I'm a huge Mustang fan...don't think I'm just bashing on them b/c I don't like them as I've had 2 of my own and will soon be buying a 2011 5.0 GT, but w/o serious work they can't handle any course time unless it's on a drag strip. That's the difference between a $50,000 car and a $250,000 car. Just my .02

The Leguna Seca Boss was faster at the track it is named after than the Audi R8.

The GTR is an absolute beast off the line, if the race would have went a 1/2 mile it would have finished mid pack. The Corvette Z06 is a great car for the money, possibly the highest performing car for the money that has ever existed but it would get drug in a speed race by the SLS AMG, the Lexus LFA and possibly the Audi R8 GT. For whatever reason the Z06 seems to get a free pass on any speed contest when it's honestly not that fast.

As far as the Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca, it is a serious track car. Lapping Laguna Seca faster than an Audi R8 and the Z06. As far as breaking into 10's, don't think it would happen without a pro driver and slicks on an amazing track. The new 5.0 GT btw is a seriously quick street car and a blast to drive.

If the weather holds out this Friday I may have an in car video of a 1550awhp Underground Racing Lambo Gallardo. This one to be exact http://www.undergroundracing.com/car...-gallardo.html
