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 M4 than the Ford Shelby GT350. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M4 and the Ford Shelby GT350 in the front seats.

Convenience
The BMW M4 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Shelby GT350, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The BMW M4 is somewhat more expensive 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 M4 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Shelby GT350.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M4 is much slimmer than the Ford Shelby GT350, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW M4 is slightly shorter than the Ford Shelby GT350, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW M4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Shelby GT350.

Handling
The BMW M4 has about the same turning radius as the Ford Shelby GT350, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW M4 has less horsepower than the Ford Shelby GT350, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M4 and the Ford Shelby GT350. The BMW M4 has significantly less cargo room than the Ford Shelby GT350, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW M4 than that of the Ford Shelby GT350.
