In my opinion it all depends on a persons driving skills...both cars are close in horsepower...

Horsepower to weight ratio is important, but also is final gear ratio. I agree with Joe, it's a drivers race.

I'll take the Mustang-

20,445

I agree, the driver is an unknown factor. But, lest you think it's all about engine size, take a look at this surprising performer and its a Four. Don't know if it is faster, but, it sure would be interesting. http://m.caranddriver.com/reviews/2015-subaru-wrx-sti-first-drive-review
