Subaru BRZ vs Ford Mustang

Angus MacKenzie pits the 2013 Subaru BRZ against its American rival - the 2013 Ford Mustang V6. After carving up canyon roads in both cars, Angus hands the keys over to pro race driver Randy Pobst for limit testing and hot laps around Streets of Willow racetrack. Find out which front engine, rear-wheel drive coupe reigns supreme!

12 minutes. Fuck. I hate it when writers feel the need to give us a history lesson. We are enthusiasts. We know. Just get on with it already.

I agree with their conclusion, however.

The Mustang was faster around the road course, dragstrip and any acceleration tests, but they deemed the BRZ more fun to drive because of its chassis and steering responsiveness.

Fun to drive is boring after a lap or two when you are getting your doors blown off. I’ll take the faster performance car any day of the week.

The good thing about low horsepower cars is that you can always add more. Seems to be the only thing keeping back the BRZ/FR-S.

A purpouse built sports car compared to a big heavy pony car. Not exactly an apples to apples comparison and the big ol' base model V6 Mustang still beat it.
