Nice one. I also had a burn up with a Audi S5, blew him away no competition at all

Had a burn out with a 911 997 Gen2 Carera 2s on a straight road, pulled away from him, not as easy as the S5 and I am sure if it was a road with lots of corners he would have had me

Nicely done mate! Any idea about which vintage Mustang that was? I cannot tell from the vid. Wondering if it was the GT with the newer 400+ hp Coyote V8 or not? I think the Coyote has been the std issue for the GT since about what? 2013? The latest 2015/16 Stang is supposedly a more capable car but the only one I have encountered did not want to play, and truly I was not ready to play either as my engine was stone cold and needed to be properly warmed up before squirting about.

It was registered on a late 2008 plate. Had the GT badge on it. I googled it after the encounter and if the information I found is correct it only had a 300hp V8 in it which would explain why he had to yield!
