Japanese coupe compared with drag muscle car and trophy truck

The authors of the YouTube channel DragTimes published a video with a quarter-mile race between the new Toyota Supra and the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The contest took place in the desert.

Despite the fact that the Challenger SRT Demon is much more powerful than the Supra, and was originally built as a car for drag racing, here he was not able to demonstrate his capabilities. For the arrival, the muscle cars were “shod” in drag tires that turned out to be helpless in the sand. This helped Toyota Supra win a landslide victory.

Under the hood of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is a 6.2-liter V8 engine with a mechanical supercharger. The return of the unit is 850 horsepower and 1044 Nm of torque. From standstill to 97 kilometers per hour, the SRT Demon accelerates in 2.1 seconds. Supra is equipped with a 3.0-liter in-line BMW turbo-six engine, which gives out 340 hp and 550 Nm of torque. It takes 4.3 seconds to reach the first 100 km/h for coupe.
