December 2nd, 2021

This contest has got it all. There’s the import versus domestic angle, the supercharger versus turbocharger thing and the V8 versus V6 issue. Well, these two fierce competitors are looking to settle the score on all accounts – in a single evening. Buckle-up, this is about to get crazy!

Affectionally called Godzilla, the all-wheel drive Nissan GT-R is the top of the heap for Japanese performance machines. Powered by a twin turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine, this reasonably priced supercar is capable of producing 565hp and 467 lb.-ft. of torque (in stock trim). The GT-R can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9-seconds and turn the quarter-mile in 12.2-seconds @ 122 mph. Top speed is 195 mph (computer controlled). The car featured in this video has been modified with various bolt-on performance components and it’s running E85 fuel.

The rear-wheel drive Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is the flagship of the Mustang lineup. It is equipped with a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine that can produce 760hp and 625 lb.-ft. of torque. The GT500 can clear the quarter-mile in 9.8-seconds @ 144 mph and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3-seconds. Top speed is an electronically controlled 155 mph. This Mustang has been treated to a upper and lower pulley upgrade for increased boost.

Shall we see how these two horses run in the brisk night air? Giddy-up.
