Car enthusiasts often engage in heated debates about the relative merits of various makes and models. Fans of American muscle cars often smack talk with Japanese domestic market cars fans when Ford, General Motors, and Mopar fans aren’t doing it. Many American car enthusiasts think that Japanese vehicles are underpowered. It’s important to remember that not all JDMs are Toyota Corollas.
A 1968 Chevelle and a Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 appear to race down the street in the video attached to this post. Everyone would probably laugh if you brought up the idea of these two cars engaging in a drag race; the Chevelle was designed specifically for such competition and should quickly come out on top. It’s important to note that both of these automobiles have been heavily customized. Comparatively, the R32 Godzilla generates 650 horsepower while the Chevelle only produces 550. Yikes.
The R32 GT-R took off like a rocket and finished first. Meanwhile, the guy behind the wheel of the Chevelle needs his reflexes tested. Furthermore, he is unable to navigate the gears properly. Just so nobody gets the wrong idea, we aren’t claiming that all JDM cars are faster than all muscle cars, because that would be ridiculous.
Both of these automobiles will be featured again in a different context than a race. It would have been interesting to see who would have won if the Chevelle driver had figured out how to control his vehicle.
Next, a Hudson with some serious upgrades—possibly a Super Six—takes on the Nissan Skyline GT-R R32. This truck is powered by a 540ci big block V8 that generates 770 hp. On the other hand, Godzilla’s all-wheel drive gives it an early advantage.
Seeing the Chevelle go head-to-head with an Audi RS4 Avant is even more exciting. As a result, the Chevelle is once again put up against an all-wheel-drive behemoth. We can’t say for sure who won, but the Audi had an early advantage. Nonetheless, if forced to choose between the two, we’d go with the Chevelle.
