This is a brilliant time to be the muscle car aficionado, with the Big Three delivering the group of beasts that even manage to surpass a late 60s heroes that made the genre so popular.
As you can imagine, the aftermarket side of the industry is more than happy and to help those who feel that the otherwise meaty factory outputs are not enough.
Let is take the pair of muscle beasts in this video, for instance. Between them, these two slabs of America reportedly pack around 1,700 ponies, the number that would be enough to split between, say, three muscle cars and the average machine.
According to YouTube gossip, this Dodge Challenger Hellcat we have here has been taken far, far away from its 707 hp stock output, with a Mopar machine rumored to pack north of 950 ponies.
As for this Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 we can see in the video below, the pony has been taken down a forced induction route.
The Voodoo motor of a Blue Oval machine now features a Procharger, the piece of hardware that can be labeled as the belt-driven turbo. The YT rumors talks about this ‘Stang delivering about 750 hp.
Given the scale footprint difference between the GT350 and a Hellcat, the battle involving the two V8 wielders might just seem legit.
Now, before we invite you to enjoy the giggles delivered by a drag strip confrontation of the two, we have to point out that the Hellcat was fitted with overly sticky rubber – notice how a Challenger lifts its front wheels off the asphalt as it takes off.
