sr-71 blackbird would beat you guys to space. Good luck trying to get there with your hayabusa
Michelle Suttle Jul 21, 2011
Muscle (straight-line)?.....possibly...but try a proper course, then we'll see : ) ///MPower

This is a M3 people. This is one nasty vehicle. It shouldn't even be compared to a Mustang GT. Especially newer Mustangs. Now if were going muscle, then sure, I'm down with a Mustang.
Anthony Villa-Garcia Jul 16, 2011
Someone should build a car based off that plane!!! That would be sick!
Andy Rogers Jul 16, 2011
Well if we're all going to get off topic: The F22 Raptor could smoke all of those!
Luke Bailey Jul 16, 2011
Idk about acceleration, but top speed is the bmw....used to be the busa, then it was the ninja zx-14r, and now its the bimmer....
Anthony Villa-Garcia Jul 16, 2011
I thought it was the gsxr 1100 w?
Josh Sutton Jul 16, 2011
The Hayabusa I think?
Anthony Villa-Garcia Jul 16, 2011
When i said superbikes, i meant custom drag monsters. Also the fastest accel bike is some suzuki right?
Luke Bailey Jul 15, 2011
the fastest bike is the bmw s1000rr which is in the 18k range....only bikes like the mv agusta cost over 30 and theyre not even faster than ur cbr 1000s and gixxer 1000s....
Anthony Villa-Garcia Jul 15, 2011
10k gets you a low end bike, and probably has no top end speed. Also 70k was kinda an exagerration, but there are some that expensive, look it up.
Anthony Villa-Garcia Jul 15, 2011
@shane, superbikes cost from 30k to 70k
Shane Carroll Jul 15, 2011
Or, you could buy a 10k bike and beat practically everything. Just sayin
Reinaldo Puchu Piñate Jul 15, 2011
Guys we must also remember that we are able to buy 1000hp supras on eBay for 70k and we can beat any Ferrari.
Jared Ramos Jul 15, 2011
What's with the Mustang GT comparison? Why not compare the M3 to the new Boss 302? The acceleration and handling characteristics are more formidable than a lesser GT. Don't get me wrong, I think the new mustangs are beautiful, so no complaints here!
Ryan Chamberlain Jul 15, 2011
the gt was like .02 being the m3 not full seconds
Jared Ramos Jul 15, 2011
Top speed is only affected by the the final drive gear and aerodynamic limitations. So why would they change the first 5 or 6 gears? The 0-60 time should drop unless wheelspin is taken into account, much like the SLR
Anthony Villa-Garcia Jul 15, 2011
Well regardless we know the 4.4 is wrong, and the mustang gt is cheaper than an M3, and has more potiential.
Jared Ramos Jul 15, 2011
Car and Driver pitted the M3 against a CTS-V and an RS5 in issue number 3, volume 56.
Anthony Villa-Garcia Jul 15, 2011
The mustang is faster in a line, but M3 is like 1-2 seconds faster on a track, but withmoney saved you could buy a supercharger and be better.
James Groves Jul 15, 2011
Well considering it's BMW that supercharger is cheaper than most ha. And a Mustang GT isn't faster than a M3.
Barry Boo Wilson Jul 15, 2011
They have low gearing in it for top speed. That's why your 0-60 is off a bit.
Jared Ramos Jul 15, 2011
4.4 seconds does seem a bit off considering Car and Driver was able to pull off a 3.9 second 0-60.
Anthony Villa-Garcia Jul 15, 2011
Yea and considering you can still buy a stock mustang gt and be faster.
Jethroll Sarduy Jul 15, 2011
That's a real expensive supercharger.
Jared Ramos Jul 15, 2011
They should have washed off all the dead bugs before the photo shoot!
Michelle Suttle Jul 21, 2011
Hahah you say that, because you're not privileged enough to sit under that hood.... ///MPower
Rueben J Yslas Jul 16, 2011
Looks like a big pumpkin is sitting under that bonnet lol
Raymond Reynoso Jul 15, 2011
I would like one of these...

@Shane yeah, who actually cared about the royal wedding? it's just 2 ppl getting married, my god.
Anthony Villa-Garcia Jul 16, 2011
Uh if you guys have been in BMWs, then you know there is quite a bit of plastic, my bmw isnt high in the luxury department lol
Luke Bailey Jul 15, 2011
@jeremih....if im drivin an m3, i dont care about driver preference....all i want to do is set my seat and leave it, cuz im not letting other ppl drive it....
Josh Sutton Jul 15, 2011
The whole deal of "I'm going amazingly fast....in a Lexus." Cadillac's a similar thing.
Josh Sutton Jul 15, 2011
It's got more space than an M3 too. It's still got the same problem the LFA does though.
Josh Sutton Jul 15, 2011
It's not the value that people are attracted to- it's because it's the best at what it does.
Josh Sutton Jul 15, 2011
If you're looking for a luxury car that you can take to the track as opposed to a non-luxury car (Corvette, WRX, Mustang GT) or a luxury car that's not good on a track (normal 3 series) then I suppose you could consider this good value.
Shane Carroll Jul 15, 2011
I'm with Chris and Ryan. Way overpriced and overhyped. For the same money I can get an old 302 fox body that will eat an M3 for lunch
Reinaldo Puchu Piñate Jul 15, 2011
It's true that the M3 can be slower than cheaper cars but remember the 3 series is an entry level luxury car. The corvette, WRX, etc. Are not.
Ryan Chamberlain Jul 15, 2011
I agree Chris overpriced and overhyped
