The V8 circle jerks really needs to stop. The modern Mustang V6 is a very capable car. 0-60mph in 5.3 sec. That's is faster than the V8 4.6 era and only .2 sec slower than the V8 5.0. I rather have a well equipped V6 than a basic GT. My car as the performance package (strut, suspension, break, 19inch wheel, 3.13 gear ratio upgrade) and its stick to the road. Its probably faster than a basic Mustang GT on autocross or track that requires more cornering.
