1989 Mustang LX (Modified)
vs.
1998 Ferrari F355 F1


     The Ferrari in this test includes the F1 option. Base price of the F355 is just over $145,000.
 
     To compete with a car like this, I have added a stroker kit to this list of modifications for the Mustang LX. The car in this test still uses 245/45/16 mounted on the stock wheels.
