Few things are better than a Bugatti Veyron and even fewer things are better than a Supra doing donuts around a Bugatti Veyron during the Gumball 3000.
Watch Buttsy Butler, a drift racer for Monster Energy, do donuts around a Veyron (from Texas) during the May 2011 Gumball 3000.

1993 was the last time we saw the 5.0 badge on the side of a Mustang. Now, finally, in 2011 Ford has brought the iconic 5.0 badge back to where it belongs – on the front fender of the Mustang GT.
The 2010 Mustang GT had 314 horsepower produced by a 4.6 liter V8. 314 horsepower may seem like a lot of power, but to put it into perspective, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro had 426 hp, the 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8 had 425 hp, even Japanese cars with V6’s were making 300 hp in 2010.
For 2011, Ford scrapped the 4.6 liter and replaced it with an all new 5.0 liter V8 that they claim produces 412 horsepower. You do not need to spend much time at wide open throttle to begin to question Ford’s claim of 412 horsepower. We have driven the 426 horsepower Camaro SS and the 425 horsepower Challenger SRT8 and this 412 horsepower Mustang sure did not feel like it had 12 fewer ponies, in fact it felt like it had many more than either of those. Granted, at 3,875 pounds, the Mustang is about 300 pounds lighter than the Camaro and the Challenger, but we could tell the extra performance was not entirely due to hauling around less weight.
