It’s Ford v Holden - with a twist, now that the Blue Oval’s Mustang performance hero has arrived.

ON PAPER, this fight is close. Both are V8 icons. Both have more than 300kW. Both are six-speed automatics and cost a brush under $60,000.

And if you believe the official performance claims from Holden and Ford, just one tenth separates these two in the sprint to 100km/h.

But how does all this translate into the real world over the quarter mile? Will Holden’s 6.2-litre SS-V Redline trounce its new pony car rival? Or will the leaner, two-door ’Stang claim straight-line bragging rights?

Watch the video to find out.
