Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 440 than the Ford Shelby GT350. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 440 and the Ford Shelby GT350 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW 440 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Shelby GT350, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 440 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Shelby GT350. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 440 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Shelby GT350.

Drivetrain
The BMW 440 has much less torque than the Ford Shelby GT350, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.
