Ford Mustang racing with Bowler Bulldog SUVDecember 9, 2019
In addition to the powerful 5.0-liter V8 engine, the Bowler Bulldog SUV, based on the British Land Rover Defender, has almost nothing to do with the Ford Mustang sports coupe. And yet, these cars decided to compare with each other in a race in a straight line.
A team of enthusiasts from the foreign YouTube channel Carwow decided to compare who will be faster in a straight line race – the legendary Mustang, or an SUV made on the basis of the Land Rover Defender. Let’s start with the Ford Mustang GT 2020 model year. Its 5.0-liter turbocharged V8 engine produces 450 horsepower thanks to its smart dual-injection system. The latest-generation Coyote V8 in Mustang is a roaring masterpiece that has a cut-off at around 7,500 rpm.
In addition to the powerful V8, the Mustang GT presented in this race has a 10-speed automatic transmission. According to official figures, the Ford Mustang GT with this engine and gearbox can accelerate to 100 km / h in just 4.0 seconds.
In another “corner of the ring” is the Bowler Bulldog SUV, which is built on the basis of the Land Rover Defender, and uses a powerful 5.0-liter supercharged V8 from the British Range Rover Sport SVR as a power unit. Maximum power is 550 horsepower or 100 more than the same Mustang. Power is transmitted through an 8-speed automatic system to an all-wheel drive system. The creators of this car claim that this is the most powerful version of the first generation Land Rover Defender SUV at the moment.
The Bowler Bull Dog SUV, which costs significantly more than the iconic sports coupe from Ford, was able to defeat the sports Mustang without any problems. The latter is designed for fast driving on a flat road, while the Bull Dog is designed to cope with difficulties when driving on the road, but nevertheless it could be faster than a sports legend.
