Motor Trend has a thing for drag races these days. For the last few years, the MT team has put together large scale runs down a straight strip of tarmac. It makes sense then that there should be such a race after an event like SEMA. This race isn't quite as epic in scope as the many-machine gauntlets that we've seen, but it's a bit more interesting thanks to the metal involved.
MUST WATCH: Hear The 2015 Ford Mustang GT Start & Rev: Video
It's Europe versus America versus, well, a machine that can go anywhere it wants. A bbi-tuned Porsche 911 Turbo squares off against the Agent 47 Harbinger Mustang and an LS3-powered Ultra Four Buggy from Bomber Fabrication.
The Porsche is well-prepped because bbi knows exactly what it's doing when it comes to tuning the Teutonic turbo terror. Under the hood of the classic Mustang sits a crate motor that normally sits inside the fenders of a 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302. The Buggy has tons of power thanks to its LS3 engine, but let's be honest here... it's got no chance in this race unless there's a portion with rocks and jumps.
The video goes into detail on each vehicle before it gets to the actual race. So if you're pressed for time, just skip ahead to about the seven-minute mark. Once there, you're going to be treated to a unique trio that compete aurally as well as they do visually.
