2014 Ford Fiesta ST Drag Raced Against Chevy El Camino, Blown Dodge

While many of you aren't that much into drag racing, we bet you'd like to find out how long it takes for certain production cars to complete the quarter mile. And we're not talking about the 2014 Corvette Stingray or the Tesla Model S, but regular cars like... the Ford Fiesta for instance.

Ok, so it's not the regular Fiesta, it's the one with ST badges at the rear, but it's still far from being lightning-fast on the 1320. On the other hand, it's not that slow either with its 16-second at 86 mph (138 km/h) pull, which you're about to see below thanks to an owner that took the subcompact at the drag strip.

To make things interesting, he pitted the car against an old Chevy El Camino and a blown 1960s Dodge, the latter a nine-second beast likely driven by a professional. As you might have already guessed, the Fiesta won against the pickup (by less than a second), but had no chance in the second battle, with the Dodge being nearly twice as fast.
