The BMW M8 Competition Coupe is Germany’s latest luxury sports car. Costing £125,000 in the UK and with 616bhp of power it’s a fast, four wheel drive four seater that can get from 0-60mph in 3.2 seconds.

But here it faces very silly competition, in the form of the Ford Mustang CS800, from UK tuner Sutton Bespoke. With a huge supercharger on its 5.0 V8 engine it makes as much as 825bhp and will get from 0-60mph in, we estimate, around 4.0 seconds and on to a top speed of around 180mph. It costs from £63,000 but here it costs £105,000 as tested, which puts it on a natural par with the BMW.

So which is better, faster, more desirable? Find out in our first drive review of the pair and stay tuned for a fun verdict from our testers Matt Prior and Mauro Calo.

Too Wet

Fun video!  It would have been interesting to see how things went in dry conditions. I'm certain the Mustang would destroy the M8 even with it in four wheel drive mode. Only change I'd make is to paint the bonnet on the Mustang.

The BMW is pretty nice.

The BMW is pretty nice.

The Mustang (any, as long as it has a V8) is one of the few truly appealing cars on sale now.

If my old AMG ever expires, that's where I'm going.
