With several new cars off the production lines of Ford, Dodge, and other big manufacturers, what better to see what they’re made of than to race them? YouTube channel, Sinister Life, did exactly that with a showdown between a Dodge Hellcat and an Audi R8.
The Audi R8 has some serious power, putting out over 500 horsepower. But compared to the Hellcat it’s still not enough. Which is proven when the Hellcat leaves the R8 in the dust not two or three times, but in all FOUR races. American muscle car for the win.
