When somebody mentions drag racing, chances are you picture two high-powered sports cars duking it out for those ever-so-important high-speed bragging rights. Those types of races are a treat to watch, especially when they’re relatively evenly matched, which would then provide us with a clear idea as to what sports car trumps another in a flat-out straight race from start to finish.
On the other hand, mid-sized sedans aren’t exactly the kinds of cars that you’d find getting involved in a full-throttle drag race, which then makes this drag race video of a 2010 Hyundai Sonata and a 2010 Toyota Camry both perplexing and amusing to watch.
Sure, they belong in the same segment and the tale of the tape would say that this one isn’t some novelty mismatch. But watching this race feels like you’re watching two well-off executives running a 100-meter sprint in their full-on business regalia. It should be entertaining, no doubt, but it doesn’t have the same energy and flashiness as, say, a Nissan GT-R taking on a Corvette ZR1.
Nevertheless, for your amusement, we invite you to watch the video to see which of these mid-sized ‘racers’ ends up reigning supreme.
