No where near quicker than a 1LE around a track sorry bud.

this way the Price tags are the same
92000 for a 427? What a ripoff. I'd rather have a Z06 and they're like 70 new, sub 40 used.

The 427 starts at $76K but we got the 1SC package and 60th anniversary edition package plus some additional options. Brought total MSRP to just under $92K. We got it for just over dealer cost which was $84K.

Ya the 1Le and mustang boss are great cars. although after owning a BMW M3 i would never want to go back to them.Its just to hard to explain with words. Its the same reason why someone spends 90 grand on a base 911 Carrera. and i bet that 1le would give that car a run for its money around a track.

Thats my only response i can give you. Its either you love the cars or hate them. Most hate them because they cant see why they cost so much money when a Mustang offers same numbers.

my advise, take a test drive. Find out. The first you will notice is that you can see out of the cars.

Took a test drive on the M3. Owned a 911 before. Bought a ZL1. It beats both of them on a track. In fact it blew away the M3 and is as fast as the 911 turbo. Fit and finish not nearly as good though.

I wouldn't compare a M3 to a 911. You're way off, that's like comparing a SS to a ZL1. These aren't the camaro's of the past, modern camaro's boogie around the track. You do have the edge luxury wise but most muscle car owners obviously don't care for that.

Faster around a track lol. Call me when ANY BM-trouble-you cuts a sub 3:04 on the C&D Lightning Lap. Can't keep up with the CTS-V more or less 1LE, ZL1.

I thought it was funny when the M3 only managed to beat a Mustang GT by a .1 on the road course and the M3 lost to the GT by a .1 at the drag strip in a comparison test.

Why do you think they're so fast? Look them up. I had headers and intake and he had exhaust.
