When an 800 horsepower Shelby Mustang GT500 and an 800 horsepower Corvette ZR1 square off, it’s anyone’s guess as to who the winner will be. Either way though, it’s a match-up that’s about as full-throttle as you can get. Well, almost.
While the above street race was already set to be one for the books, it took a surprising turn when a third competitor cleared the pack and kept on booking it like there was no tomorrow.
Turns out there was a 1,000 horsepower Supra chilling behind that Mustang the whole time, waiting for its opportunity to strike. I mean, it was a good effort, but the Mustang and the Corvette never even really stood a chance.
Winner winner, Supra dinner.
For all you gearheads and souped-up sports car fans out there, there is a way for you to build a 1000 horsepower beast like the one you just saw. Of course, like with any ambitious custom protect, you need plenty of time, money, and resources at your disposal.
But, if you want to see how one guy got the job done, just check out the video below.
As you may know, the Supra has had a reputation as a speed demon for quite some time, making countless appearances in movies, TV shows, and video games over the games. Whether you’ve raced it to first place finishes in Gran Turismo or watched it absolutely kick ass in street races in the Fast and the Furious franchise, you’ve probably seen a supercharged Supra do its thing a time or two.
Does constantly witnessing that type of domination ever get old? Not a chance.
