Since Ford has yet to reveal any serious details from the testings performed on the new Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca, Sport-Auto Magazine took it upon themselves to run a performance test on the car at Hockenheim. Turns out, the Mustang has better braking performance than the Porsche 991 and is faster than the Aston Martin DBS, Audi R8, Ferrari California, and BMW M3 in Hockenheim.

The video starts off with burning rubber and a couple of drifts as a warmup, but then it moves on to showing the car in action on the race track. The Mustang’s potent 302 cubic-inch 5.0-liter V8 shreds through its 444hp, killing the vehicles listed above, but failing to outdo the BMW M5 F10.

Still, beating out the Porsche, Aston Martin, Audi, and BMW (the M3, not the M5) is enough to warrant some applause, especially considering the fact that the Boss is priced at $47,990, or less than half of the price paid for most of the cars on this list.

Wow! Ford amazed me on the more changes of their models. It produces powerful engine and speed performance. This model surprised me most.

Not really surprised that the Boss beat all those cars. The Boss Mustang is a phenomenal car, but it’s essentially a dumbed down of what Dodge did with the Viper SRT-10 ACR. It’s not as intense of a track car, but it’s no where near as much of a road car as the BMW M3 or M5, Aston Martin DBS, Audi R8, Porsche 911, or Ferrari California. Not really a fair comparison, like Gerlich said, it’d be more accurate to compare it against track geared cars like the M3 GTS or R8 GT

I’m seriously tiered of hearing about how the boss is a M3 beater, no doubt the boss is the most fantastic version of the mustang we have seen in a long time, and it sounds fantastic! However it really is a mustang splattered with different bits and pieces from the the ford motor sport catalogue, if you should compare it to any cars it should be the M3 GTS or the Audi R8 GT. But I’m delighted that the mustang have finally gotten the status it should always have had, and fixed it’s rear axle.

Really? That was amazing! Who would have thought that Ford can have that powerful engine and speed performance against Porsche, BMW, Ferrari, Audi and Aston Martin? Fantastic!
