Let my tell ya.. the beemer handed that GT350 it's butt. On the funnier side, both got flashed from a photoradar car. The beemer for winning, then the gt350 for the flyby.

Did you find 5 dollars?
No, but guaranteed they both got at least a 700 buckaroo fine.
Been trying to find What M-series could beat a GT350, so far no luck.

A new M4 CSL would likely walk away from a GT350, but it'd likely still be fairly close.

0-60 in 3.7 for the BMW, 4.2s for the GT350
543hp/479ft-lbs for the BMW vs 526hp/429ft-lbs for a GT350.
3640 lbs curb weight for the CSL vs 3760 for the Shelby

According to Car & Driver it does.
I looked up the 2017 and it show it as a solid 100lbs less. Still, I'd thought around 3400-3500 for sure. Thanks.

There's also a ton more supporting stuff that goes into BMW M cars. Drive one sometime, you'll never want to pay what they do but you'll understand instantly the difference... the M5 is still one of the fastest cars on some of the hardest tracks in the world and it's a 4 door sedan LOL the M4 and M5 truly are in a league of their own, but in comparison to a nicely built S550 Mustang dollar for dollar, the mustang takes it all day everyday.

BMW underrates their cars power. In most cases, rated power is close what they put out at the wheels. However, the S58 engine used in the current M models is probably better suited for the track, because of it's power delivery favors high-end, much like the Mustang. On the street, the M340 models are the ones to watch out for. They use the B58 engine with 11:1 compression and twin scroll turbo, so they have really strong low-end performance and very linear delivery. They are also cheap and easy to mod.

My neighbor has had M3’s and M4’s for years. Currently has a Dinan tuned 2019. They have all felt the same to me: like a fast Camry. If money was no object I’d keep the Mach (but might put a blower on it!). And would take a GT350 over it too.

Fun fact: the one he had before this one had a timing chain break. He had to pay $13,000 for two new heads so he could trade it in on the 2019.
