I was alluding to the current 5.0...but, using the Fox body as throwback, you may not like them, but they are endlessly tuneable and have untold mods. I respect Ford for what it has done. And let's be fair, Ford is repsonsible for Aston Martin's turn around, their V12s, V8s, Jag's current offerings, Volvo as well. They helped fund the XJ220 (yes it has a Renault V6)...and Ford-Cosworth was a beast back in the day. And then when they couldn't buy Ferrari, they beat them with the Daytona Coupe, got with Dallara, Shelby, and a English firm and produced the GT40, and Ford has more Le Man's victories than BMW.

If Ford really wanted to, they possibly could have Ford of Europe design a Mustang to enter in DTM, possibly do very well. Since I don't know the rules, they may allow a car without IRS to have a special track IRS.

You mean Porsche, followed by Audi.

Not even sure if Ford is a distant 3rd - they won LeMans outright what, 2 or 3 times?

I was saying individual cars (and yes I know the R8 R10 and 917) I also said most.

And the gt40 won four years in a row (66,67,68,69) that's damned impressive by anybody's standards

I was referring to the comment about the cars in the video. I was comparing BMW makes in that series (touring cars) to the comment about who really came up with "ultimate driving machine". That would be the E30 M3. Don't even compare the ford of that era to the E30 M3 success.

Nah they have bmw secret service for that, he'd have been dead before his fingers even touched the thing.

And honestly, the hood looks exactly the same as my 135's

I was at BMWs test facility in France yesterday and saw the 1M in person. There is no hood bulge. This may change for production, but as of the moment there is none.

The entire car or just the front fender? Did you sneak any pics?

why does everyone care if there is a hood bulge? the N54 fits in the engine bay just fine. yeah it looks cool on the M3 but it's also functional

Unless there is a supercharger under the hood a hood bulge is never functional. Even on both iterations of the M3 with bulges they are cosmetic

But it's not -- it's aluminum.
