Shelby 350 GT vs BMW M2: Which Car Should You Get?

By  | 

The all-new Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 has already proved its worth as the car comes loaded with plenty of speed to offer. The best part is that the GT350 is also affordable too as it is priced from $47,795.

For that price, the GT350 is simply mesmerizing as this makes the vehicle both cheap and fast, if compared to other cars with the same power capacity. Speaking of which, the 5.2L V8 engine which the GT350 runs on is packed with 526hp.

On the other hand, there is the all-new BMW M2 which is lighter and it promises a performance like no other. With a curb weight of 3500 pounds, the M2 is lighter than the GT350. The vehicle runs on a 3L turbocharged 6-pot engine that generates 365hp and 343ft-llbs of torque.

This might not sound like much but it does allow the M2 to sprint from 0-62mph in about 4.5 seconds. However, the M2 is not cheap to own as it retails at $52,695.

For us, we would pick the GT350 over the M2 any day. Yes, the M2 is light and powerful but the GT350 has got the better power-to-weight ratio. The GT350 is also considerably cheaper than the M2 and this makes it more attractive. If it is up to you, which would you pick?
