Old vs. New – 1987 Buick GN vs. 2015 Hellcat

October 18th, 2019

Hello, drag racing fans and welcome back to the streets (of Mexico, naturally) for a battle between the best of the eighties and what was (for a short time) the most powerful muscle car to ever come out of Detroit.

In the right lane is the legendary Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. At the car’s production, it was the baddest car to roll off a Detroit assembly line. Equipped with a supercharged 6.4-liter HEMI V8, the Hellcat is capable of churning out 707hp.

On the left, we have the beautiful black Buick Grand National from the eighties. It was also the most powerful production car of the year (1987). It came with a turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine capable of producing just under 300hp. My, how times have changed. It could grind out a 13.5-second quarter mile and reach 60 mph in 4.7-seconds. Obviously, the example featured in this short video has been enhanced for performance purposes. It has a stock engine block and cylinder heads with full bolt-ons. Maximum output is estimated at 425hp.

The only thing left, is for these two to line up and throw down. Let’s go to the video.
