1/4 mile drag race between two rare Detroit Cars cars. A 1968 Dodge Charger R/T with a 375 horsepower 440 Magnum takes on a 1965 Tri-Power Pontiac GTO which is powered by a 360 horsepower 389 cubic inch engine. Both cars are 4 speeds. The GTO has a 4.10 posi rear, and the Charger has a 3.54 Sure Grip rear..
what a close race between cars that are classics.. one car achieving 13.78 seconds at 101 mph, and the other 13.79 seconds at 100 mph. But there is something strange about this video. Look at it carefully and you will notice that the cars are switching the lanes, from the point when we are looking at them warming up, and when they are racing.
Charger should have pulled away from the GTO on the launch due to greater low end torque even with only 3.54 gears. see video and tell us which one is your favourite
