Street Racing Digs – Sedan Shoot Out

January 20th, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and aficionados! Welcome to this contest between two high performance sedans. Allow me to say that I love the posturing and smack talking at the front of this video. I don’t know how it is where you race but in my neck of the woods there has to be a little flexing (or playing possum in some cases) and jockeying for position before you split the light. It ain’t mean or evil. It is loud but it’s just guys (and gals) letting off steam.

This contest features a couple of GM products engaged in dig racing on the streets (of Mexico, naturally).

The first sedan is a Pontiac G8 (complete with a baby seat in the back – I know, I know – don’t worry, no babies were injured during the making of this video). This is the Poncho sister-car to the Chevrolet SS. Both were produced in Australia but the Pontiac comes with a 400hp 6.0-liter V8. This car is also equipped with a Lingenfelter ZL1 supercharger, it is running E85 fuel, and has a performance tuner.

The second sedan is a Cadillac CTS-V. It is the GM flagship sedan with a supercharged 6.2-liter engine that produces upwards of 550hp. This Caddy also has a nitrous injection onboard (even though the valve is securely closed). Looks like the Pontiac takes the flag – see what you think.
