    Too bad it weighs as much as an E-Class from the mid-90s.

    I thought it was around 3500. Pretty close to the EVO X.

    Im not a ford guy at all but this is very impressive. Its great to see the car companies still competing like this. Cant wait to see what dodge and GM answer with.

    Lighter
    and makes more power than the 2010

    sad that even with the comeback of the camaro and challenger that the mustang is still the better car :hs:

    i'm a big camaro fan but imo the camaro is a let down (mostly because of the horribly ugly interior) and the challenger looks way too narrow and high even after its lowered.

    mustang wins this generations battle too imo
