According to Ford’s PR team, sales of the new 2011 Mustang GT are pretty good. Yet, it’s the optional Brembo package that has Ford jumping for joy. Ford says that the car is “exceeding our expectations”.

The Mustang GT comes with an all-new 5.0-liter V8 engine with 412 horsepower. That being said, the competition, including the Chevrolet Camaro SS and the Dodge Challenger SRT8 come with Brembo brakes as standard.

Buyers in this segment are looking for quick and precise handling and epic power. The Challenger provides the latter of those two, but it’s the Mustang that gives buyers the best of both worlds. In 2014, the Camaro will be getting a slight refresh, but until then, the pony car is still the front runner.

Before we see a revamped Camaro, will be getting the Z28. The car will be on the Zeta platform and will do battle with theFord Shelby GT500. It’s expected to have a 6.2-liter supercharged LSA V8.

Yet, it’s not just domestic companies that are making rear-wheel drive sports cars. Nissan has the 370Z and Hyundai has the Genesis Coupe. Both of these cars provide everything that a buyer could ask for at a decent price.

Hit the jump to see the full list of goodies offered in the Brembo package.

The 2011 Mustang GT with the Brembo package includes:

- * Front 14-inch Brembo vented rotors with Brembo four-piston calipers
- * Rear 11.8-inch vented rotors with four-piston calipers
- * Unique 19-inch wheels
- * Summer performance tires
- * Unique suspension
- * Unique electronic stability control and steering tuning

Maybe their intention is to make it more sporty rather than innovate it.

There was an unfortunate sun glare from the chrome ring around the center ventilation outlet.

Heck, the design team even looked at a Ford Racing crate engine for ideas. With a 430 pound aluminum engine block, the new Mustang weighs in at a relatively svelte 3,620 pounds.

What do you mean by "very high?" does its price doubled when they added a brembo package on it?

I agree and most of the domestic car are quite a low price and has the same or maybe more high performance than the American sports cars.
