We’re talking about a recent series of races that went down as an 800 hp challenge, involving no less than four cars whose power sits around that value.

In terms of nationality, the competition was balanced, as a pair of Corvettes met two JDM heroes. To be more specific, a C6 and a C7 went up against a Toyota Supra and a Nissan GT-R. Allow us to take you though the details of each machine.

We’ll start with Godzilla, whose engine bay conceals a Jotec Motorsports Stage Four upgrade that takes its output to 800 hp. The same horsepower number is declared by the driver of the C6 Corvette involved in this shenanigan. This Chevy turns to E85 and a turbo setup delivering around 10-12 lbs in order to generate that output.

The clip also includes a C7 ‘Vette that allows its driver to play with 730 hp. The V8 under the hood has turned to a Procharger setup, as well as being an alcohol sipper. Oh and this ‘Vette could very well be the fastest car here, all thanks to the tons of red LEDs found all over the vehicle.

As for the Supra we mentioned above, this is not the Mk IV we’ve come to associate with such racing episodes. Instead, we are dealing with a third-generation model, one that delivers a meaty 830 hp. Under the hood, we find a cool mix between a 1JZ cylinder head and 2JZ engine block.

The four drivers have no problem with battling it out all the way past 150 mph (that’s 240 km/h for all you reading this over on the Old Continent).
