The current-generation Ford Focus RS and a Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 are two of the most impressive performance vehicles to ever come off Ford dealership lots.

They are both quick, agile, and fun to drive in plenty of ways, and they are also both completely different vehicles with almost polar-opposite spirits. If you were to line the two of them up at the drag strip—like they did in this video—you might not be able to tell much of that, and except for how evenly quick both cars are.

A clip shared on YouTube Wednesday shows the GT350 and the Focus RS facing off at the Racewars event at Island Dragway in New Jersey.

Though the Mustang comes packed with the 526-hp, 5.2-liter V-8 engine from the factory, and the Focus RS has just the 2.3-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder with 350 horsepower, the result of the drag race between the two cars is close as hell.

The track-side screens in the video below read that the GT350 won the race—just barely—by hitting 106 mph in 13.17 seconds by the end of a strip, while the Focus RS recorded the run that ended at 104 mph in 13.41 seconds. Though it appears the RS got a jump off the line thanks to its all-wheel-drive system, well, it couldn’t hold its lead over the GT350.
