2012 Ford Mustang GT500 $67k
2012 Ford Mustang Boss LS $51
2011 BMW M3 (loaded) $75
Might appear that M3 is so much more expensive but I think when you go look at the TYPE of car, paint schemes, what it's designers were going for, how it drives, what it is SUPPOSED to do, the M3 is a fantastic car.
I dunno about this..
The c63 amg coupe with nice options is only $70,000
the 2012 GT500 in a vert with all options is at MAX $67,000
The 2013 starts at $54,000 and mine with the SVT performance pack, recaro seats, and navi came preordered at $62,000.
The boss is about $47,000
I agree the next m3 will be GREAT. But I think they are falling behind in every category except for best "overall daily driver" as most call it.
