Hennessey HPE550 Camaro vs GT500 vs SRT8

Great video of a side-by-side drag race by MotorTrend.



Guess who wins

Pretty sure this was just released yesterday on YouTube. Have you seen this before, I take it?

Yeah that what was amazing. It just repeatedly pulled away from the GT500... Everytime it get near it's bumper it'd be gone lol.

The SRT8 was just so far behind it was embarrassing! That thing either needs to lose a lot of weight or have an engine swap.

I can;t watch that here at work, so assuming it is that weak MotorTrend Comparison, putting a STOCK SRT8 against a SUPERCHARGED GT500 and a SUPERCHARGED TUNER Camaro, what'd you expect? Why not get a Saleen, HEnnesey or Mr Norms Challenger? The price would have been comparable to the Camaro and they'd had as much as 600 HP.......

Loved the video, Great editing.

My only complaint is the SRT8 should have been supercharged... would have made the race a bit more fair.

Camaro would have still come out on top though.
