 I forgot aboutvtge apps these days as I have not used any nor a GPS.
 But the test equip magazines used was probably quite sophisticated for the time.

 Just fun facts and a chance to brag a little. My daughters drag car goes zero to sixty in around one second, covers 60 feet in 1.1 seconds. 1800 lbs and around a thousand hp.
 
That's 1.8 lbs per hp a healthy 750 is around 5 lbs per hp oops, plus rider. 
 
Our jr dragster with a briggs and Stratton ran the same 1/8 mile ET as a 455 GTO. The owner was flabbergasted until I explained we weighed 300 lbs and had 30 hp, his car weighed 4,000 lbs and had 400 hp.  the same power to weight ratio.
If the things you own end up owning you, it's better to be owned by some cool things.

I happen to be driving a 2018 Ford Mustang GT this week. Inside the instrument panel software is a tab for Track settings with 0-30, 0-60, 0-100, 1/8th mile, 1/4 mile times. I would expect other modern enthusiast vehicles would be fitted with this.
 I won't be using any of this software, but the Car and Drive review says 0-60 in 4.3s, 1/4 mile in 12.6s @ 115mph.  8)

Hey Kevin...what motor does that have?

I had a 2017 Mustang convertible rental when my wife's 370Z was in the body shop, the 'stang was a dog compared to the Z.  The Z has 332 HP and does 0-60 in 4.9.

Stev-o, the 2018 Mustang GT has a 5.0L 460hp 420ft/lb with 10 speed auto. I’m not in any way qualified to compare it to it’s peers, and I won’t be pushing it to collect any 0-60 times. But the sound..... the SOUND that comes out of it, even when hauling groceries, is luscious.

That is not the Mustang that I drove, unfortunately.  The convertible had the lowly V6...305hp and I just read that motor has been discontinued.  No loss in my book...

Nissan GTR is a performer possible to dream about. Outperforms many Porsche's, Ferarri's for much less money.
I have heard about 2.8-2.9 sec 0 - 60mph

Here is a rundown on the Mustang, instrument panel on page 8-9, complete with Christmas tree. Claimed 0-60 time less than 4s with auto trans.

https://www.ford.com/services/assets/Brochure?make=Ford&model=Mustang&year=2018

I have ridden a Kawasaki Concours with selectable riding modes and read about the same on Ducati but never seen or heard of a programmable instrument panel with options.

So it seems Ford has incorporated gschulds $12.99 DLFusion app, or something similar, into the new $50000 Mustang.
