Toyota GR Supra vs BMW Z4 M40i and Ford Mustang GT. Who is faster?

September 24, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

The sixth-generation Ford Mustang GT is a serious contender for any sports car, especially if under its hood there is an aluminum atmospheric V8 engine of the Coyote series with a capacity of 450 hp. It would seem that the one-root Toyota GR Supra and BMW Z4 M40i (they are built on the same platform) with their 340-horsepower BMW engines have no chance, but in reality everything is different.

Tests on the dyno stand show that the real power of BMW and Toyota is slightly less than the automaker claims, but the Mustang GT is larger than its rivals, respectively, a couple of hundred kilograms heavier (1720 kg in maximum configuration). What will happen on the racetrack?

A video of the car duel appeared on the YouTube channel of the South African edition of Car Magazine, and the race took place on the airport runway at a distance of ¼ and ½ mile.

From the start, Toyota GR Supra takes the lead, accelerating to 100 km / h in 4.54 seconds, the BMW Z4 M40i did it in 4.73 seconds, the Ford Mustang GT turned out to be the slowest of all: it accelerate to a 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds. The ¼ mile Supra distance runs in 12.83 seconds, the BMW Z4 M40i in 13.02 seconds, the Ford Mustang GT with a result of 13.16 seconds is behind.

A somewhat different situation when arriving at a ½ mile distance: a Japanese car passes it in 20.15 seconds, a Ford Mustang in 20.33 seconds, a BMW Z4 M40i takes 20.60 seconds to do this.

It would seem that the winner is obvious, but the Ford Mustang GT is much cheaper than its competitors: in American car dealerships it is priced from $ 35,630, while the Toyota GR Supra is priced at a minimum of $ 49,990. The BMW Z4 M40i roadster is sold at local car dealerships at a price of $ 63,700
