And you dont think it would be faster with an auto, and even faster with a DCT?

Just saying
I would like to see a DCT Mustang beat that time. As for now, I don't think a DCT will get that time.

From a performance standpoint, the new GT500 is better. From a cost standpoint, it's way cheaper to buy a 2013 GT500 and probably easier to find one as well.

If you bought the car to keep 3 or 4 years, the 2013 will probably also depreciate less.

In general, the new one stomps a mudhole in the old one's ass. The S197 version makes for a stellar strip car, but the new one will do it all.

Having had an early last-gen, I really wasn't impressed with the car other than in a straight line. I actually preferred my '09 Bullitt overall (far better balanced), as sacrilegious as that sounds to some Shelby worshippers.

DCTs have been faster. i dont see your point. Everyone in the galaxy knows automatic is faster, why even bring that up

That’s the case for any New Car compared to one 5-6 years old.

Can’t really argue with that .

My point was that a well sorted M6 could still “put down the power effectively”, although I am sure the $30K Motec ECU helps.

But I concede your point as it would still not be as effective as an auto/DCT especially with the stock ECU.

Plus, nobody is even talking about the other attributes - I mean, it __is__ a passenger car, that's driven on the street, maybe used for road trips, all sorts of things - more modern Mustangs ride better +and+ handle better at the same time (Magneride is insanely good), have better audio/ICE stacks, they've continued to improve things steering feedback. My buddy's 2012 GT500 felt 20 years old the last time I rode in it (he currently has a Charger Hellcat, wanted a nice comfy, "real" 4 passenger vehicle that also goes like stink ...)

I mean, I know were all hardcore, badass motherf*****s, who don't care about pansy shit like ride quality ... but if you did ... :D

so show you something thats unavailable? Why not a AT10 coyote n the 7s? if an auto can do it, the tremec dct will too with enough Dodson treatment
The A10 is different than the DCT, as you know. Is there a DCT from tremec that can hold that 1400hp?

I really hope your not arguing strength of manual vs auto, nor faster manual vs auto. so yes, there will be 1400hp DCTs in time.

As someone who has owned a 10 GT500, currently owns a 19GT w/A10 and has a 20 GT500 on order, I can tell you that the current gen is better in every way. Now, the 13/14 GT500's are much better than the "bastard year" 10's, but the interior and overall vehicle are the same. I loved my 10, but stock for stock a 18/19 GT PP1 with the A10 would beat that car in every performance measure. The interior and overall drivability are so much superior. I suspect the same will be true with the 2020 GT500 vs the 13/14's. The 5.4/5.8's are pretty much bullet proof. They have proven to be a pretty stout package. I hope the 2020 proves to be the same, without all the ticking and oil consumption that has plagued some of the 5.0/5.2's

No where did I say anything about the strength of a stick or auto. I'm saying there is no DCT for a MUSTANG that we know about that can handle that 1400hp that's in that GT350.

Your statement was to dispute that t "there is no way for a 6mt to put the power down as good as a DCT"
Then you posted a video of a manual, as if that were superior, which everyone knows is not.
