Its a 382hp boat. Congrats.
The BMW is down about 100 hp and 200lbs over weight.

that's some serious sawing at the wheel. Initial braking stability is downright poor it seems. Was this with all nannies off? You can clearly see just massive understeer.

Depending on the caliber, it'd be able to go right through the sheet metal and pass clean through the other side. Would even be able to do the same to the block if you go big/hot enough.

But to the subject of this video. Wow. The bullitt looked like a handful to drive. The Bmw looked so much more composed at every part of the track.

two thoughts here...

1) watch your @$$ on the turbo beemers, I had a 440i hang with me all the way to about 120 and only then could I walk away. He followed me to the gas station and I found out he only had an upgraded turbo wheel and an e85 tune...claimed 440whp 🤨

2)

Nobody gonna mention the correct spelling of Bullitt?
sure!

I own both a '19 Bullitt and an '17, 6-speed manual M-Sport 440xi with track handling package and Dinan Stage 1 tune. There's no question the Bullitt is more fun to drive around like a hooligan, but there's no way the Bullitt handles like the BMW. Both cars have fresh Michi PS4 . It's like the difference between a knife and an axe: both are useful tools, but are designed for different tasks. On a tight track, like Streets of Willow, the BMW would beat the Bullitt every time. On Big Willow, the Mustang would give it a good run. If I want to go somewhere, I'll take the BMW. If I want to put a smile on my face, I get the Bullitt.

The BMW pulled 408 HP to the wheels on the Mustang 4WD dyno after the Dinan tuner was installed.

For stick vs auto and turbo vs NA, this is remarkable for the Bullitt
Yep, the BMW is a twin turbo 3 liter 6 with a ton of torque down low. If the Bullitt had a closer selection of gears in the MT-82 it would do even better; I think 5th is 1:1 in my 440

I had a X3 M40i...believe it shares the engine (B58) with the 440...great motor and combo with the ZF 8 speed, seriously quick...but the 5.0/Coyote with a manual is way more fun to drive :party:

Should have used M2C for comparison.
If they'd run a M2C, a GT350 or GT350R would have been a more appropriate comparison. A Bullitt and M2C is like chalk and cheese.
