Battle of the Brands: Shelby GT350 races Dodge Challenger Hellcat

Dodge created a new rivalry when it reinvented the Challenger, and upped the ante with the 707-horsepower Hellcat. So the only way to settle a rivalry is to hit the runway.

Can a brand-new Shelby Mustang GT350 take down the menacing lime-green battleship?

Seems like a tough call: the GT350 “only” has 526 horsepower, while the Hellcat has that infamous number practically emblazoned on every single owner’s forehead. But the Shelby has the lightweight, aerodynamic advantage, while the Hellcat weighs and looks like the Hancock Tower.

Only one way to find out. Watch above as the two eye-searing cars tear down the empty runway, in this very scientific race that will have fanboys yelling at each other for years on end.
