[모트라인] 한 마리의 야생마! 포드 머스탱 GT 공도&서킷 리뷰 (2017년식)

1, 2, 3, huh! – what’s up everyone, it’s Black Beoms here – hello everyone I’ve been seeing you a lot lately I’ve read some comments by the viewers, and they really like you me? I’ve been with Motline for a long time, and they like me for who I am it takes a while to like me – what do we have today? – it’s a 6th generation Ford Mustang – this is a model right before the facelift version – yeah, GT 5.0 facelift version is already out, and this is the one right before – Mustang brand has been around for more than 50 years – it’s almost as long as Hyundai’s history there’s too much history and info for me to memorize, so I feel like I have to read this material to you viewers right before we dive in to history, we wanted to say this first we really wanted to review the latest version, but due to many reasons one of them being that we haven’t found a sponsor of the new Mustang, we have decided to review 6th generation first today’s review may help viewers to understand changes when we get a chance to review the newer Mustang we hope the viewers understand why we decided to review slightly older version and enjoy the show first off, as always, I’m wearing black, and the owner of this car happens to really like black color I know you met the owner of this car tell me about him he didn’t tell me I couldn’t say this… just not his name he used to work at UN, with former Secretary General Mr. Ban he used to work for UN about 10 years, and last year he came back to Korea and he opened up a coffee shop in GoYang (Korea) near Ikea and he told me that any Motline fan can come and he’s willing to serve for free – but you’d have to pay – of course that’s the very basic of economy the coffee shop is called “slow day”, and there is an Ikea right nearby so if anyone has to go to Ikea in GoYang, you can drop by the coffee shop too other than coffee, they serve English style breakfast too – ah….. with tea – tea, sandwich, etc. shop is really cozy and pretty let others know too if they decided to let us review their cars, they can have a slot in the review to promote their business so please call us we’ll visit “slow day” next time we’re in the neighborhood and he’s starting to regret quitting UN a little bit maybe… wants to go back? I hope people from UN sees this I wish we could talk from outside of the car, but I really like this design – this 6th geration? – yep. I really like this design and you can check this right here it says 1964 first generation came out in 1964 in my opinion, this first generation is the greatest masterpiece I believe it appeared once in 1 of The Fast and The Furious series and this ’64 model was tuned up to 800hp and driven by Ken Block you can check out the video on YouTube after this, European styles took by the storm, and somehow Mustang’s design became somewhat “European.” design starts to become uglier – I don’t like the 3rd generation design – it’s called fox-body style it looks kinda like a Japanese model and somewhat like a Daewoo Espero it has that European look back in the day in terms of design itself, it’s not right

– 4th generation came out and – it looks different design started to change a lot this is when people started to tune Mustangs – I believe the 4th generation is the first Mustang to be imported to Korea – you’re right. this is the first model in Korea and the 5th generation appeared in Transformer as Barricade, where it chased a Camero this is when I started to really like Mustangs this is a retro design, where old and new designs started collide together so the 5th generation’s design received good reviews? yeah, in terms of design, it was awesome and also received awards – and now 6th generation – we’re in a 6th generation model 5th and 6th generation has similarities there’s not a whole lot of big changes and I think Ford finally realized something instead of changing the design tremendously and betting on it, to go with a retro design and make it appear more American muscle US is a big country and I think they tend to have their own favorable styles like not worry about gas price, big cars and comfortable rides and their favorable motorsports styles tend be a drag and Nascar I think they like races with straight line, full throttle styles and there’s a difference between a muscle car and a pony car I always thought these sort of cars fell under muscle car category all together I heard that pony car category came out with launching of Mustangs is that correct? yep. so in general big engines over V8 with lots of roar fall under muscle car category like I just said, back in the day, American cars had big bodies but really fast on the straight line engines has to be big with tons of roar and their tuning style back in the day was swapping big engines in to mid-size platforms engine swaps became the new tuning, and that’s when swap culture started – swap culture? – yeah, swap not that kind of swap what are you thinking? I’m not that kind of person and that’s when Ford knew this could be a money maker, and decided to sell as stock, with big engines in a mid-size body so muscle cars and pony cars are similar in ways, but also different – we should go check out Nascar – 400km race that sound and excitement it’s so stupidly amazing – I really like that Nascar movie with Tom Criuse – Days of Thunder wow. I really like that movie first time I watched Nascar, it made me wonder why it’s fun to race on an oval track but someone asked me why do you like short track speed skating? I think it’ll be really fun to watch Nascar in person European motorsports tend to race with compact, small cars with sharp handling and feels sticky all around but this Mustang is the opposite of everything it has bulky and swaying feeling so in Korea, US cars are not that popular, but they tend to keep their own style and not care too much and I highly value those spirits they tend to have that “we’re the best in the world” mindset, like in space war movies US takes care of the problems, under orders given by the POTUS I think they have their own world to live in what do you think about these seats? first off, seating position is too high maybe Americans tend to have longer legs and short waist basic position is too high what about the interior? I really like this interior design previous models had that old 90’s Hyundai Sonata2 interior feelings to it American cars had that sort of looks to it, not caring too much about the interior but now interior design has become somewhat European and really stepped up

but this material they used for its price range maybe they spent all the money in to the engine and the design – should we check out some tune and drive? – ok – this is the first time I’ve seen Shaker audio – this is an American brand – oh really? let’s check out how it sounds – to my knowledge, it’s an American brand let’s head out to the track listening to music like a GT car let’s roll let’s head to the track we’re back at Inje circuit once again I think there’s a fun trend happening thanks to Motline a lot of new faces are hitting the track even on the week days I personally like the fact that people are challenging each other on the track safely, instead of out on the streets let’s go this swaying movement these tires are not suitable for the track these are just normal tires for the road electronic stability controls…. traction control wow! very smart. works really well it’s not too bad it’s more stable than I thought because of its size, I imagined there would be a lot of under-steering, but under-steering doesn’t happen when entering corners this car has tendencies to pull-in to the corners running on normal mode, like out on the streets, lap time is at about 2min2sec when driving in normal mode, it feels like a regular sedan with good power it sways a lot now let’s try sports mode wow stability control really holds its place when exiting out of corners with full throttle, and power over-steering is about to happen 1st corner is scary I don’t know when this car is about to run off car feels a bit more sensitive in sports plus mode a bit more sensitive let’s try turning off all of electronic controls and it’s off wow! drift mode coming your way! as soon as I turned everything off, drift mode kicks in now I have to control the car rear really wants to slide around what’s going on? is it in limp mode? throttle won’t work out on the normal roads, these sort of problems doesn’t appear only when pushing to the limit

I think I may have to cool the car it’s not working properly let’s try cooling off the car I have cooled off the car for about 30 min I’m going to try my best to record a lap time I feel a bit uncomfortable due to high seating position maybe Americans have shorter waist I have a longer upper body, so I like lower seats this is too high when I drive in straight line and the car is lifted, scares me to think roll-over may take place but when I take corners 1 at a time, it doesn’t feel too bad there isn’t too much swaying feeling only in straight lines ah ha!!! spinning! just not enough steering angle there’s over-steering tendencies this car basically has over-steering tendencies, so the owners of this car may feel over-steering movements out on the normal roads I’m not even driving at high speed right now, and still has that slight over-steering feelings other than weight balance of the car, I think these all season tires are effecting the movement of the car a lot they are not fit for the track although shifting is slow, it’s not too bad this car definitely doesn’t have that European car feelings we’ve reviewed before first off, steering becomes busy, and the driver has to manage the balance of the car let’s check sector times later and review ideal time I wasn’t able to record a proper lap time before pass me

be safe manners maketh man if you’re going to let someone pass, turn on your blinkers and let them by let’s yield to each other on the track and on the roads, and take care of each other just let faster cars pass you by it’s easier that way [ Motline car care product commercial ] I have driven this V8 on the way to the track and Beoms to meet you, and there is something appealing about a V8 this is the first time I’ve felt it exhaust and engine has different feelings just by testing on the road, check out the steering wheel it sways too much this car feels like a dancing balloon it really feels like a wild horse what you feel this swaying movement of the car comes from the suspension, but when you step on the throttle and hear the engine roar, it feels like a wild horse – it’s like an untrained horse – you’re right. there’s a wild side to it the downside of this car is that over 100km/h, it starts to feel unstable is it really unstable? and not just feel that way? I don’t think suspension set up is proper what this feels like is back in ’94, there was a Hyundai Sonata2 with a DOHC engine it was a sedan with really high speed cruising ability, for 90’s Korean standard – it was a hit model – it had high sales number, and a fast car but it felt like it was blowing in the wind it was fast in a straight line, but the car moved around too much and that’s what this car feels like despite being 2018 today, I’m feeling Hyundai Sonata 2’s movement back from ’94 so the facelift version of Mustang has magnetic ride damper I think this is the last version of American style, and with facelift version European style design and suspension set up start to change one at a time I think engine will continue as is on purpose – 5.0 liter? – 5.0 engine or others to maintain American style when we’re driving at 70~80km/h range, only the engine roars like a sports car but the actual feedback feels just like a normal automatic car

there’s no emotion it’s too slow… and that’s about it why did they do this? come to think of it, maybe it’s because of the price range what’s going on? it’s not shifting – what’s going on? – it’s fixed on sports mode – oh, so the driver has to shift – yep, it feels kind of like a manual they did ok job by fixing the gear in sports mode what did you think about the brakes when driving on the track? – this has 4P brakes, and in all honesty it was ok – just ok? to be completely honest, this car doesn’t have any pros and cons – just a normal American muscle car? – you can only take emotional side from this car there’s nothing outstanding or special it’s just a good emotional car from design and sound aspect – there are rumors that American cars exaggerate on hp. how do you feel? – yep! – this has over 400 hp, right? – it has over 440hp on paper really? in 440hp range? but the way I physically feel is about 350~360hp range that’s how my body feels initial torque is really good it really has good initial torque American cars tend to use around 6,500~7,000 RPM range at max I can understand shifting time since this is an automatic, but gear ratio is really awkward when it needs to cover transferring the power this is an 6 speed automatic, and every single gear is really long I’ve said in previous reviews that some cars can push thanks to the transmission, despite the engine not having enough power most of cars now a days have tight gear ratio with more gears, and that can cover cars with low hp but this Mustang has long gear ratios 1st long, 2nd long, 3rd long… and so on it feels like transmission from way back in the days this Mustang has ZF transmission, which Ford has obtained license and uses it this transmission is commonly used for 8 cylinder engines what’s important is since when this transmission was used since 2001! we’re in 2018 that’s why I said that this car feels like an old Hyundai Sonata nobody uses this sort of transmission now a days in a way, this is an American version of Hyundai Genesis coupe – same coupe style – the way rear seats look is similar style as Genesis coupe it has enough power because of the power and the sound, it makes me feel like I’m driving a sports car but it doesn’t have that compact cars’ specific movement to it – that agile movement – you’re right. it’s far from agile – as you’ve said before, why do they tune muscle cars so much? – they do a lot Mustangs are American’s pride but instead of this engine, they use Corvette’s LS engines for swap why are they selling so much melons on the streets today? didn’t we eat strawberries before? are you buying melons today? we’re at a winding road, and let me drive just a bit here 1st gear feels like a manual transmission this isn’t joking around it wants to spin even at low speed this is kinda funny

when I was driving in a straight line, the car swayed too much from side to side but when I steer left and right like this, it responses well this is really funny – a lot of people commonly say that Mustangs slide around in the rear too much – they’re right cars tend to slide around a lot if the shock absorber set up in the rear is too hard or too soft and finding that middle point is ideal European cars are really good at finding that middle point for shock absorber set up the reason finding that middle point is hard is because there are a lot of variables European makers have separate specialized teams to find the set up and cars tend to have good movements it feels like this Mustang has too soft rear set up and slides around too much because the rear is too soft, it sways too much on top of that, wrong choice of tires with hard compound has been used, which doesn’t match this car’s power and torque tires are too hard there’s an upside to this you can use these tires for a long time it won’t wear off too easily what happened just now is the rear sliding around when accelerating and when entering corners, because of heavy engine in the front but mounted inward, this car has over-steering tendencies this is similar to BMW’s basic set up of mounting engines slightly inward to roll in to corners and this Mustang has similar feelings obviously it’s not the same engine as BMWs, but the basic weight balance design is similar despite this car swaying too much, because of the layout of the engine mount, in short turns such as now car moves around very well if I take a guess, I bet the front has thicker and the rear has thinner stabilizer when I turn the steering wheel left and right, it felt as if the stabilizers are restraining rolls thicker stabilizer restraints the roll of the front, with inward balance of the car and because there is a strong slides in the rear, thinner stabilizer is used to make the rear softer that’s my guess but this swaying feeling may be due to soft springs, and the leftover movements are transferred to the steering wheel, despite stabilizer holding its place stabilizer’s job is to hold strong rolls in high speed corners, but when there is little movement swaying feelings of soft springs can be felt when the steering wheel turns over 90º weight starts to transfer and the stabilizer and shock absorbers start to do their jobs and car starts to handle well by saying that spring rate is soft means that the front and back movement is big and when the front is pushed down due to heavy braking, the rear tend to lift up strongly because of inertial forces and if you turn in sharply in high speed, rear will have higher tendencies for sliding – very specific explanation – that’s what this car feels like wants to do what I don’t like is, after shifting, the car tends to move forward a bit like right now after shifting, I lifted the throttle and the car wants to move forward cornering movement is very different European cars tend to be compact and moves as I wanted it to but with this Mustang, and make the movements with the steering wheel by myself this is an old school movement very old school feeling but it has a lot of mechanical feeling I have to control the car a lot more this is a fun car to drive on winding roads up until we hit the winding roads, there was nothing special to talk about this car but I’ve found a fun part and surprisingly that appears on winding roads – I don’t think this car is for everyone on winding roads – I think you’re right

unless you’re a well-trained driver, driving fast on winding roads could lead to a big crash when the car was a bit out of control and yet, you still managed to drive it – I almost peed my pants – really?? anyways, surprisingly I had a lot of fun in corners out of all the cars I’ve been on this winding road with, such as 118d, Cayenne, K3, etc, this Mustang had me worried the most I thought we might get in an accident, but then I saw your face and made me at ease this was really fun I wasn’t sure how to explain to the owner of the car, who was a former UN employee you thought we were going to crash this could have been Motline’s first crash and all sorts of imaginations ran in my head – really? you really almost peed your pants? – yeah – then I have a present for you, who almost peed your pants – what’s that? – for those who get too excited – Evan Chris underwear. where did you get this? Hamtori handed me this to promote in our review I heard this underwear is functional yeah, this part of the underwear that’s for men’s…. uh let’s keep it PG you can’t wave it in the air design of this new line-up is really good don’t you think so? there’s a lot of color variation and I think men will like this design – from what I heard, material used is really good – fabric is different? – what do you think? – it feels soft fabric is made from a type of chestnut tree extract, which makes it eco-friendly and good feeling also helps to hold your boy in one place and provides cool air down under – wait!!! I found something – let’s pull over and talk about this what is it? this feels weird what is this….. it looks the same from the outside we have to flip in inside out ta da! check it out! I think this is a pocket for your twins so when you run, twins don’t fight with each other – this maintains your manly temperature of 33.5ºC – oh really? please check out Evan Chris underwear and since I peed my pants I’m going to change in to this – and you can have the extra one – thanks with this lighting, you have really become Black Beoms – we’ll see you in final words – see you soon hello everyone. it’s Black Beoms here let’s start on the final words today we’ve driven a 6th generation Ford Mustang 5.0 GT and we’re standing in front of my company, Beoms we haven’t hung up a sign on the building yet and we’re still in the middle of moving in right now still, doesn’t the building match the car well? black on black [ Ford Mustang vs Chevy Camaro ] in terms of design itself, personally I like the Mustang better overall it looks very strong and manly in the front and the rear Camaro slightly has that plastic model looks to it however, in terms of powertrain and hp, I think Camaro has a step up [ Mustang’s drive ] in high speed, it felt like I was driving a sedan just a everyday normal sedan and I think this car is driven with torque instead of hp when hp is needed, it stops on you and when accelerating even in low RPM range and before 6,500 RPM, there was a lot of punch so it made me feel like this car is driven with torque like any other American muscle cars [ how did different road conditions feel ] while cruising on normal roads, comparing to a lot of other cars, 5 out of 10 just for cruising part

on winding roads, because of swaying feeling of the car, I didn’t think this car would make it out of short corners but in actual, it turned really well, and I want to highly evaluate on that part so for winding roads, 8 out of 10 as for the track, I would give 5 out of 10 and the reason is it was fun to drive over-steering tendencies, drifting movement, turning in to corners, ability to hold in high speed corners, all of those were fun to drive but the down side is powertrain part it’s supposed to have 440hp but it felt as if this transmission ruined it all that’s why for the track, I’d give lower points and higher points for winding roads it really surprised me [ Black Beom’s choice – before and after facelift ] first off, thank you to the owner who let us borrow your car to review and also sorry, but the facelift version with 10 speed transmission is the way to go as you can see, it’s not quite sunny today, and feels as if monsoon is about to hit in May your home may be a bit damp, and your health to be worsen so please take care of your health and also please take care of your cars please be safe driving in the rain thank you for watching – translation by JJ Lee from Beoms Motorsport –
