After a slew of YouTube comments and requests begging for this match-up, Hennessey Performance finally pitted two of the best American muscle cars around against each other in a proper shootout.
To make the playing field even, the Dodge Hellcat Challenger and the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 got a rolling start in a best-out-of-three drag race. Both cars are pretty evenly matched at their stock specs, so it’s anybody’s game when they come around the corner and really open the throttle.
Put your money down and watch until the end to see the winner.
Well, hopefully you had your money on the Hellcat. As many commenters pointed out, the end result may have been different if both cars were either manual or automatic. It looks like an auto Hellcat versus a manual Z1 is pretty much a done deal.
Either way though, this high-octane racing experience really is a sight to behold.
