It's time for a V8 SHOWDOWN!
It's Mat vs Yianni going head-to-head in two cars that have oh-so similar specs. Mat's in the Bullitt Mustang, which is packing a 5-litre V8 under the bonnet which will produce 460hp & 530Nm. As for the LC500? Well, it's also powered by a 5-litre V8, which can produce (you guessed it...) 460hp & 530Nm!
However, there are a couple of differences. Although the Mustang only has a 6-speed manual gearbox (compared to the LC500's 10-speed automatic), it weighs about 100kg less than the Lexus! But will that be enough to power it through to snatch the win?
There's only one way to find out... LET'S RACE!

    • But at carwow it won't do well as they dont have a prepped surface!

    • @Emil Aby The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is already plenty quick in stock form, estimated by Dodge to hit 60 mph in 2.3 seconds and run the quarter mile in 9.65 seconds on a prepped surface.?????

  • The Lexus is like the Asian cousin of the mustang that went to college with a PhD in calculus, and the mustang is the regional manager for a Fast Food chain.

  • Honestly I dont think mat can handle that mustang

  • The Lexus won everything here: speed and beauty. Maybe a draw on the sound though.

  • Sorry Mat but you don't know how to drive a manual - you should never have lost that rolling race. I've got a 2018 PP1 GT and it has much more than you got out of yours.

  • Does goes to show that how modern automatics are better than manuals at performance......

  • Never ever before i'v been this hooked on buying an American car as now with that current gen Mustang with a lovely NA V8 and F*CKING MANUAL gearbox.. FROM AN AMERICAN CAR !!! Let that sink in for a moment, will ya! The first time in the automotive history they do something better than us Europeans. Also, as many of the comments bellow pointed, driving all these stupid and boring autos made Mat rubbish with his manual gear changes. This is the direction we are all heading.

  • A better driver for the mustang would of made a difference. If the 5.0 had the 10 speed it would of walked that Lexus.
