    What are we nitpicking because I guesstimated instead of taking the time out of my day to do perfect math?

    Nevermind. My point stands. The GT350R is most certainly 20k more car if not more over the GT regardless of options. Proof is in the pudding.

    No one's ever said the R wasn't faster than a base auto GT. Are you also impressed the Focus RS is faster than a Focus ST or Titanium?

    Interesting to see the race GT pulling and passing the street GT on the straight when the street version GT has 100 more horsepower.
    I didn't realize they were that different, but obviously there is something.

    I assume weight, maybe gearing?

    Ford GT, GT350R, GT (1:50.02, 1:58.14 , 2:08.19)
    Ford GT, GT350R, GT ($400,000, $63,000 , $35,000)

    Look at the above if you cant see the problem with your statement then there is really no reason to try and engage you in a rational discussion.

    Aside from the fact your prices are wrong, and I never mentioned the Ford GT you still havent told me that somehow being amazed that a cheaper car is not as fast as a more expensive one.

    Did you expect a $37,590 car to be almost as fast as a $64,645 car? Or are you just REALLY hung up on that I didn't do EXACT math and that is closer to 27K?

    Wait let me disect this for you as you seem to have comprehension problems:

    Looks like just a base GT(You know a Mustang GT, subject 1 that we are talking about). So... yeah I'd expect it to be faster for like 20K more(clearly referring to a GT350R, subject 2 that was being discussed). It's a 50% price difference.(between Subject 1 and Subject 2)

    There are only two types of people in the world, those who can extrapolate from incomplete data... and firestarter2.

    If not then make for once make a valid point. You seem to be trying to toll over a point that was never spoken, so either you have some form of inability to follow conversation or you are actively making conversation points up in your mind.

    Pretty cool video. Looked like the GT350 and the GT almost touched at the end. Always amazes me how much faster a real race car is than a street car. Even a street car as fast as the Ford GT.

    That was a really cool video.

    What I found odd though was the they were all Ford Performance Vehicles except the Mustang GT, they had two Fiesta ST's but no Focus ST

    So if you guys notice this is a British video. That means the Mustang GT is a Performance Pack car with 10 Spd. They have the PP standard in the EU.

    The black one is actually a Focus ST. They typed it wrong.
