Before people go nuts, that's just a ZL1 bumper on an SS, and yes, that has a 10-speed, and yes, the DH came with a 6MT. They wanted the 6MT so they could pit it against the Emira, M2, and Supra with 6MTs.

Race 1: 1/4mi
Camaro SS - 12.2s @ 118
Mustang DH - 12.5s @ 115
Challenger Shakedown - 12.5s @ 112

Race 2: 0-60, 1/4mi
M2 - 4.2s, 12.2s @ 119
DH - 4.2s, 12.5s @ 115
Emira - 4.1s, 12.6s @ 111
Supra - 4.2s, 12.9s @ 112

I drove the new manual G87 M2, the thing is a beast.

That thing is revolting to look at though

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I love the way the M2 looks. Much better in person.

Looks like if you want the 1/4 mile winner in stock form, you need to go with this… at least in the 2 door coupe, front engine RWD $60K range.

Definitely feels like it drives different though...
While I haven't tried a GT, I suspect you are correct. The handling package options for the GT are included as standard feature on the Dark Horse. Unless you're comparing a GT with the handling package to a Dark Horse, I would expect differences. It's probably the MagneRide but I find my car a bit floaty with gentle waves in the pavement but when you throw it around a corner, it's rock solid. It makes a comfortable ride on freeway but should be well behaved on the track.

Yeah the car likes to go around corners and enjoys every min of it especially if you have the HP.
