Sutton CS800 Mustang 2019 UK review

  Sutton CS800 Mustang 2019 UK review Sutton Bespoke's take on the Ford Mustang is the CS800, which has more power than its name suggests and plenty of attitude to go with itIn the right place, if you want, it’ll spin up the rear wheels for the odd giggle – the traction control’s quite liberal. Sutton has fitted a short throw gearshift which is wonderfully snappy and precise. Heavier than usual, but no worse for it.

The BMW M 8 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 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 V 8

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.

BMW 3 Series Touring

  BMW 3 Series Touring Can a six-pot diesel engine and bigger boot make the 3 Series even more appealing?The more noticeable difference identifies itself when you examine claimed kerb weights. Next to a like-for-like, rear-wheel-drive 320d M Sport saloon, BMW’s equivalent estate is some 115kg heavier, tipping the scales at 1640kg. Swap the four-cylinder diesel out of the BMW wagon for our test car’s straight six, then add BMW’s rear-biased xDrive four-wheel-drive system and an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and that mass figure leaps to a claimed 1760kg.

Mustang: all the wild and wonderful offshoots

Nearly new buying guide: Ford Mustang .
Used UK-market Mustangs are fun and affordable. We investigateIt was available in full-fat 5.0 V8 GT and economy-oriented 2.3T Ecoboost forms and clothed in a choice of coupé (called Fastback) and convertible bodies. Six-speed manual and automatic gearboxes were offered. Today, on the used market, transmission numbers are split 50/50, but the V8 easily outnumbers the 2.3T. Ditto Fastbacks compared with the convertible.
