The Nissan GT-R in its R35 generation has been very successful across the competition field since its introduction back in 2007 and there are tuners constantly working on upgrading the record for the drag sprint.
But let’s see how things spice up when the drag competition turns global – as the Dodge Challenger Hellcat introduces itself to the stage to meet the Japanese machine. And then the iconic German machine – the 911 Turbo S – also steps in to protect the dignity of the European continent. So, we have a global showdown between the US, Asia and Europe. What more could we ask? The race has been organized by a team of Brits – and we’re probably going to see a lot more of such ideas coming out of the United Kingdom in a bid to show the Brexit was indeed a bad idea.
There’s a question to be asked – is the Challenger’s RWD a predicament compared to the AWD of the Japanese and European supercar. You bet it is, at least in the first moments of the race. But we’re not going to spoil the goodies for you telling up front if the blown 6.2-liter Hemi under the hood allowed the muscle car to catch up later in the race to protect the honor of the territory that invented drag racing.
