Watching a drag race between two distant generations of any famous car manufacturer is always an appealing and interesting. That is why every time we come across a video clip with such a content, we are keen to show it to you right away. And the race that we have prepared for you in today`s article, is one of those for which I`m sure that will be very appealing to all of you, who truly love the American muscle cars.
This drag race is one of those that we do not have a chance to watch often. A battle between two distant Dodge relatives, a 1961 Dodge Lancer, and the most powerful muscle car ever made, the one and only Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat!
Too bad that the author of this video did not give us the information about the cars, especially about that old-timer. Because we all know well that the new Hellcat is packing the 6.2 liter supercharged V8 engine, that is producing 707 HP and 650 pound feet of torque. And if we are judging from the stock variants of the 1961 Dodge Lancer, the most powerful version is a 224.7 cubic inch engine, that is generating 196 HP and 212 pound feet or torque. But from what we could have seen in the video, and the Lancer`s performance, it is very possible that it could be highly tuned.
So just watch the video, and afterwards, you can tell us what you think about it in the comment section below. And if you want to find out more about the `61 Lancer, go to this link.
