Here's motor trends first test:

I'm a little surprised they were real drive 3.7 seconds 0 to 60 but could only manage an 11.7 Quartermile. I'll say it again they should've put on those P corsa zero from the Viper, none of this all season tire crap. I know there's guys saying the GT500 has crappy tires factory but they're a lot better than all season tires. Also I think it's really stupid that they do their testing on a regular road. If you're going to quarter-mile testing why wouldn't you do it at a dragstrip and get true times. They need to do a head-to-head and bring the cars to a true dragstrip none of this bullshit street testing. I did notice the trap speeds were identical though. Interested to see a head to head comparison.

Prepared surface versus real world surface, GT500 wins this one. .1 behind, not bad. This is fueling the Mustang forums, lol.
If there was no Mustang GT500 running that same day...place and time .....it doesn't mean anything at all for them.....but they can think it does...LMAO

What I mean is that they tested the GT500 and ran an 11.6. On the street, who the hell knows, one guy might be running DRs and the other is not. 6SPD vs. 6SPD from a roll, that will be close. From a dig, 6SPD vs. 6SPD, I'd put money on the GT500 all day. On a drag strip, I'd again put money on the GT500. The Hellcat will be HELL to drive. My point, the hype will/has backfired. Before any numbers have come in, most would have agreed that the Hellcat was the quickest, not anymore. I was hoping, something I should not have done, that the Hellcat would have done better in the MT test. 11.7 is nothing to write home about IMO. 11.2, definitely the quickest without any debate. That was a short honeymoon, lol. Just wait for the much lighter GT350 to race the Hellcat and win, oh well, I'd still hock my left kidney for one.
Really???

We are just getting started here.


How many GT500's have been run???......How many Hellcats??......Get my drift?

You jumping on this is a bit hilarious to me......very premature.....

I am going to say right now the Hellcat goes into the 10's...bone stock.....in great air with a damn good driver

....You wanna bet?
