It's not the turtle against the rabbit, I can tell you that much ...
If anything but death and taxes is what you can count on, it is that the guys at Mopar and GM lose no chance of annihilating each other. Ben Franklin would have included that entirely in his famous quote had he been born in the 20th century. For this reason, I certainly expect arguments from the video contained in this article with a modern Dodge Charger Scat Pack driving a 1970 Pontiac GTO.
Watch a Dodge Hellcat drive exotic European supercars here.
Add to the controversy that it is a matchup between an intrepid old and a young revolver in the muscle car scene. I know, I know, a lot of people will hate me for calling the modern charger a muscle car. So there is another controversial matter. Oh, plus the fact that I think these cars are up against each other really doesn't show how far American performance has really come in the last 50 years.
Another controversial thing about this race is the fact that one of the cars has four doors! Hide the kids, lock the doors and grab the pearls because some enthusiasts just can't accept that a "grocer" can be quick. Trust me, adding an extra set of doors doesn't mean something can't drive this route in a rush, but is this Scat Pack such a vehicle?
Measuring up to a 1970 Pontiac GTO, simply called The Judge, may seem almost impossible to some. After all, this thing is a legend, a titan among muscle cars that people refer to with great awe. But, as with so many legends, there have been some embellishments, whether deliberate or not. It's not exactly a land missile by today's standards of performance. While the Ram Air IV 400ci V8 seems impressive, keep in mind that it was rated at 370 horsepower and 445 lb.-ft. of the torque. Those aren't bad numbers, but these days we have grocers who have more on tap.
As for the modern Dodge Charger Scat Pack, it's pretty hot with a 6.4 liter V8. This mill produces 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of the torque. The Mopar, however, is a beefy 4,400 pound. versus just 3,700 pounds. for the GTO, so that's a disadvantage. Sure, Dodge includes 3.09 gears mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which is a pretty smooth setup, but will that be enough to doom The Judge to some on-track humiliation?
Remember that the Pontiac has a 4-speed manual transmission. So if the driver is not good with a stick, they can really screw up the barrel. And that should be a lot of controversy to get people arguing about this breed along with the people making fun of it. So now is the time to check it out for yourself.
