When we last saw our Ford Shelby GT500 in a drag race, it got left in the dust behind our Tesla Model Y Performance. Given the Tesla’s all-wheel-drive traction and immediate power delivery, that may have been an unfair pairing. This time we’ve attempted to even out the playing field by bringing a 2021 BMW M4 Competition. In this video, Carlos Lago and Kurt Niebuhr from Edmunds jump into these high-performance vehicles to see which one has the quickest acceleration and 0-60 time. This is a drag race of the Ford Shelby GT500 vs BMW M4 Competition.
The 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 is a muscle car through and through. A supercharged V8 engine routes a whopping 760 horsepower through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to the two rear wheels. The Shelby’s massive tires, massive brakes and special aerodynamic body pieces all work in harmony to allow for optimal performance on the racetrack.
The redesigned 2021 BMW M4 Competition is a fast and powerful luxury sport coupe. Under the hood, the M4 packs some serious punch. The 2021 M4 Competition produces 503 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. At our test track, it covered the quarter mile in 11.6 seconds at 122.7 mph. Noise and vibration are kept to a minimum, even for a performance car. The M4 is quick and nimble on the track, and it’ll give any competitor a run for its money.
Ford vs. BMW! Muscle car vs. sport coupe! It’s a battle for track supremacy in this drag race of the 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 vs. 2021 BMW M4 Competition.
