For those that were asking about the quarter mile times: We intentionally ran this as an off-the-cuff race, and there was no staff available to run the timing gear. However, the mustang wasn't running it's ideal times because this wasn't a fully prepped surface and perfect conditions. It was the REAL WORLD. The Stinger was on the same terms as the Mustang. This is what would happen in real life if you raced these two from a light. (Not that we condone that sort of thing .... #TakeItToTheTrack )

      Throttle house you really need to stop trying to sell this bullshit story!! Prepped tracks, its all a bullshit excuse for a rigged video! I know ricer fans are stupid enough to believe this shit but there is no chance. I watched a stock 10sp 2018 run a 12.00 on the first pass ever down the track in 90 degree heat, stock radials on a track well above sea level. There is no way that Kia turd will run anything near 12.00. Stop trying to sell this bullshit story!! First it barely edges out a 2017 and now it smokes a 2018 that is a full second faster in the quarter mile stock/stock. If you want the Kia to win fair and square, race them in the snow...I'm sure that Kia would actually win in that situation.

      You guys are a joke you claim this is like a real world test. Motor Trend who does street test on non prepped tracks too and get way different results. But they do not use modified cars just factory setups that way this test is invalid. Why are you not using a Stock Mustang setup, that Mustang looks like it has after market springs and not factory springs. It is setting too low to be a factory setup. Which would change the results of the Mustang. The wheels are not factory too, which makes this test invalid. A mid 13 second car on the street is not going to out run a a low 12 second street car. The Mustang you ran was not on factory wheels either but after market wheel. The Mustang is setup from the factory for the stock wheels not after market wheels.

      I like when the question was asked why the Mustang won at the track? Humm.. let's see, maybe because it has 100 more HP and 50 more torque, plus it weighs 200-300lbs less? The Mustang also had stiffer GT350 springs. So the 100hp advantage car had suspension mods! They should have raced a stock Mustang. I have driven the GT with the regular Perf.Pack 1 and it didn't handle that great or anything special. It actually felt soft sprung. Give the Stinger GT 95 more HP and take them out to the track to see what happens then.

      I'm not buying the quarter mile. I know with just my base model GT Manual, 0-60 I can get mid to low 4's if you really practice your shifting, and the 10R80 can do 4.0 seconds flat. The Stingers are known for Mid to High 4's, and that's it. I think they were just trying to push the Stingers, for guys who may otherwise want a mustang. Stingers are actually very nice cars, but they just aren't selling very well in America. American men would rather get the traditional Mustang. If they want a sedan, they'll bypass the Korean car and spend that $45k on a certified used BMW 435i AWD M-Package, which would slaughter that Kia day in and out.

      Besides, guys like me would much rather have the fun of driving a Mustang. You just can't get a brand new Stinger GT for $29k.

      Whoopie di doo the Kia is a 4 door sedan and family car. Have any of you ever tried sitting in the rear seats of one with a 6'0" adult up front. It may work if you had no legs but the rear seat room is not much if not no more room than the stang. If you want a sedan then buy a base Audi RS3, it's damn near the same money as the stinger and is a proven beast with bolt ons. The RS3 will run 9 sec in the 1/4 with bolt on ons and still be a great daily driver

      Kias are junk i work on all kinds of cars every day, and the ones i work most on: chevys,kias, hyundais, if it wasn't for these 3 brands, we'd be out of business. i 'm not saying any other car brand is any better, just that these are our top 3 moneymakers

      I'm afraid I can't buy this for a second. In no universe could the stinger beat the mustang in a straight line drag race. The stinger should not even be able to beat the mustang off the line if the mustang driver knew how to launch properly. You have to heat the tires up so they stick - there was a lot of wheel spin there on the mustang. Before you ask, yes I could do better. Although in all honesty, the Stinger is a fast car and I do like it.

      Just accept that Ford is garbage and is basically going bankrupt yet again, as they will discontinue to make vehicles besides their garbage pickup trucks.

      Lol comparing a shitbox car to a world class muscle car and letting it beat it in a drag race is laughable. Your “professional” driver must not be a professional. I’ve seen several stock mustangs on stock smaller tires that that run 11.90@118-119mph. The shitbox car cannot compete with that. Get a better driver.

      In UAE both cars over priced, the mustang GT is around 69000 Canadian dollars, and the stinger is around 62500, we have thiefs here, just a tip for any one if planning to move here, better buy yours from your country and ship it here.
