Cool mustang kill

Hey guys, this is my first kill.

I was coming back from Brampton just cruising, when I heard an older 5-liter Stang roll up beside me on the 410 to the 401-east ramp. We just cruised for a bit slowly increasing our speeds. He was in front and he kept spitting back rock that were bouncing of my hood, that was getting me kinda mad, so I decided to pass him. I have tiptronic on my 330i (I wish it was stick) so I down shifted to 4 to go pass, just then he down shifts as well. I hear his v8 roar. I usually never race, but this guy was pissing me off. We took off. We were about 190 km/h on the 401 when we side by side. I could have sworn he was trying to go, but I just kept up with him, then I decided to open my car up. I started pulling on him, like it was not even funny. I could hear his engine, but he was like 5 car lengths behind me. I slowed down to see what was up; when I could see him again he gave me the finger. I started laughing and took off. I never saw him again after that. I guess he would never thought a 20 old punk driving a bimmer could make him look so stupid.

nice kill

I believe the older 5.0s had 225hp stock. He probably had much less unless he had a recent rebuid.

Actually, the first few years had only 215hp. So sad.

I was kinda surprised myself; I never thought the car had that much go. However I have a question, I was told that my car tops out at 209km/h, but I am pretty sure I was well over that. Could it be my imagination?

Your speedo is not accurate at that speed

Anytime you want to race my "American junk" you let me know ok?

Mineral Gray 03 Cobra 12.8 @109 mph bone stock

Now I have a few mods and know how to drive it, I fear NO Mercedes, and I certainly don't fear a 95' 525.

P.S. Soccer is a really gay sport

its funny how u act tuff, yet.,..dont know what your acting tuff about. Mercedes doesnt make a 95 525, or any 525 for that matter. BMW makes 525...But..i would be scared and just move over if one of those pulled up to me at the light...unless i have what i want in my car (M3 motor with FI)

My bad, I confused my argument between the car Ivan was talking about and the car he actually has. I just get pissed at anti-american car sentiment when people don't know what they are talking about.

M3s are sweet, I'd like to run one.
