The Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is powered by a 6.4-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine that produces 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. That output is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. It’s named for the quarter-mile distance (1,320 feet) and is equipped with strip-oriented performance gear such as adaptive damping suspension with Drag Mode, Line Lock, TransBrake, Torque Reserve, and extreme-duty 41-spline half shafts. It sits on Nexen SUR4G Drag Spec 275/40R20 street-legal drag radial tires.

As for the Mustang GT, there’s no detail about it. This particular model may not be as drag-focused as the 1320, but it’s still optionable with several performance upgrades that can unleash its hidden craze. A package is available for the car, which will give it bigger tires, bigger radiator, MagneRide dampers, additional chassis bracing, a limited-slip differential and Brembo brakes.

Finally, we come to the fun part. The blue Scat Pack 1320 is against a black Mustang GT here, which has a shaker hood and an a-bit-troubled driver who seems to miss a gear. The engine sound shows that it bounces off the rev limiter. But overall, the car still helps making these races entertaining.
