Shelby GT500 vs. Dodge Challenger T/A 392: Drag Strip Showdown

Highlights of the Dodge Challenger T/A 392 vs. Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 drag race:

  • A Dodge Challenger T/A 392 recently competed with a Shelby GT500 on the South Georgia Motorsport Park drag strip
  • The Challenger is slower on paper, but the GT500’s launch control has a noticeable lag
  • In the end, however, the Shelby overtook Dodge’s muscle car, even with a slow start

Before being charged with electric assist, muscle cars drive with a bang — and serious speed. And while it’s arguably more of a super sports car, the Shelby GT500 is not only a top Mustang, but also a top muscle car. Or at least one of the tops, because the Dodge Challenger stands tall too, and not just in Hellcat form. But can the Challenger T/A 392 summon enough muscle to take down the Shelby GT500 on the drag strip?
