Keep in mind that the GT500 only comes in manual form and, as we found out in our review, pulling ideal launches doesn't always comes easy.
The two slabs of America got together at the drag strip, but actually raced in Canada, with the machines having met at the Mission Raceway Park.
In fact, the velocity beasts duked it out on two separate occasions, with the drivers feeling like going for a second run to spice things up even further. Truth be told, both machines delivered better times on their second runs.
As you'll be able to notice in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page, one of the drivers wasn't up to the task. Then again, we wouldn't rush to conclusions. For one thing, perhaps the aficionado was new to the whole drag racing game and needed to practice.
Regardless, the aural side of this battle is just as enticing as the visual one. And while the Demon comes with its built-in, overly loud blower whine, the GT500 packs a more balanced decibel approach.
