With the Nissan Z about to go on sale, the Japanese company finally handed out press cars in order for us to find out how it stacks up to its competitors. Hagerty was lucky enough to get two cars – a manual and an automatic - and pit them not just against one another, but against a GR Supra, a Mustang Mach 1, and as a bonus, a 2010 Aston Martin V-8 Vantage. The results are as much surprising as they are not.

This 1,700-HP Foxbody Is The Rowdiest 1993 Mustang Cobra R You Have Ever Seen

What started out as a 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra was turned into a tire-smoking, drag strip weapon

A 1993 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R is something of a collector’s car, which is why seeing heavily-modified examples like this one, is quite rare. However, the horsepower junkies at Addiction Motorsports don’t care about collecting cars, which is why they’ve turned the red ’93 Cobra into a one-of-a-kind, 1,700-horsepower dragstrip-slaying Foxbody Cobra.

The Sheriff’s Explorer is back, this time taking on one of America’s best sports cars

The Jefferson County Sheriff is back with the trusty old Explorer, this time taking on the mental C7 Z06. Granted it’s not the latest C8 Z06, but, the previous iteration is no slouch either.

An Early S197 Ford Mustang GT Desperately Tried To Close The Performance Gap Between Itself And America’s Best Sports Cars

This 4.6-liter all-motor Ford Mustang GT wants to be as quick as a modern Mustang GT as it challenges a C5 Corvette and a Dodge Viper GTS

The fifth-generation Ford Mustang is not the most admired American car. Granted, it was the first modern American car (after the Ford Thunderbird) to introduce the retro-futuristic design, but its 4.6-liter DOHC, three-valve V-8, although based on proven technology, left something to be desired on the performance front. Over the past few years, YouTuber Four Eyes has set out to turn a 2007 Ford Mustang GT into a proper performance machine – one that can run with Corvettes, modern Mustangs, and even Vipers.

This face-off saw the legendary ’68 Shelby GT500 take on a ’72 Firebird Trans Am 455 H.O

While pure stock drag racing remains a popular class to this day, here’s taking a look at what it was like gunning it down the drag strip back in the 80s.

This video with its grainy lines and off-beat commentary, about two of the greatest names amongst muscle cars going head to head, sure does ring the nostalgia bell pretty hard. Strangely, the video has the correct aspect ratio of 16:9 rather than the 4:3 which was the norm back then.

Probably The Most Bonkers Hoonigan Drag Race Ever: 573 CID Chevy K5 Jimmy Vs 2JZ Ford F-150 "Frightening"

Hoonigan’s 2JZ-powered Ford F-150 "Frightening" from Fast & Furious races a nasty-sounding Big Block Chevy K5; headphone users, beware!

To say Hoonigan’s drag races are epic is an understatement. For a while, we have been seeing some of the most insane showdowns with some of the weirdest builds ever, but this one takes things even further. It may look like a classic Ford versus Chevrolet duel, but there’s a twist. Hoongan’s very own homage to the Fast & Furious, Ford F-150 Lightning, driven by Paul Walker goes up against an all-American, insanely loud Chevy K5 Jimmy Big Block V-8.

This Infiniti Q60S Showed The Ford Mustang HPP That It Shouldn’t Be Taken Lightly

The Infiniti Q60S did pretty well on the strip to pin the jinxed Ford Mustang in drag races

Sam conducted another drag race, this time involving the Ford Mustang and the Infiniti Q60S, and uploaded the video on his YouTube channel, ‘Sam CarLegion’. This is an interesting mix because it involved a V-6 taking on a four-pot mill that churns out more power. However, the V-6-powered car comes with an all-wheel-drive system, unlike its rival that drives only the rear wheels. To make it even more interesting, they both weigh pretty much the same. Which car do you have your bets on?

The Mustang Just Can’t Figure Out Why It Keeps Losing To The Discounted Fusion Sport Again and Again!

The Fusion Sport sure makes more power, but it’s also over 450 pounds heavier than the pony

Sam CarLegion has uploaded many drag races videos on his YouTube channel so far. He has a ton of different cars already, but the standout star has been the discontinued Fusion Sport. The Fusion Sport has raced the Honda Accord, as well as a Ford Mustang in the past, and has humiliated both the cars.

Now, we have the next chapter of the Mustang vs Fusion rivalry. To spice things up, we’ve got the tuned versions of both these cars. The Fusion Sport makes a lot more power than the Mustang, but it’s also over 450 pounds heavier, which balances things out to an extent. Yet, the Mustang loses. Now, that’s humiliating.

Watch The Ford Fusion Sport Destroy a Dodge Charger On The Drag Strip

Watch The Ford Fusion Sport Destroy a Dodge Charger On The Drag Strip

This race proves that a Dodge Charger without a Hemi V-8 isn’t worth much on a drag strip. Especially, when it races a turbocharged, AWD Ford Fusion Sport

It’s always interesting to see how two stock or mildly modified vehicles stack up against one another in a drag race. Our fellow Canadian car enthusiast, Sam CarLegion has gathered two entry-level sedans with V-6 engines in order to find out who’s quickest. We have a Dodge Charger on one side and a Ford Fusion on the other. Both vehicles have all-wheel drive and V-6 engines, but that’s where the similarities end.

Remember how the Ford Fusion Sport obliterated the Mustang on the drag strip? Well, it is now back to Sam CarLegion’s channel for a drag race against a Honda Accord. The Accord, in every sense, is an underdog heading into the race. But, unlike some heroes that emerge from the bottom, the Accord couldn’t do much here other than kneeling down in front of the Fusion. Too dramatic, eh?

The Bronco Raptor has been in the headlines lately for all the right reasons. So, Hennessey has decided to make use of the ripple effect caused by ‘Bronco’ to show us all the prowess of its creation of the beast called the VelociRaptor 400 Bronco.

Drag Battle: Kia Stinger GT With a Tune Messes With a ROUSH Ford Mustang GT

The Kia Stinger GT is surprisingly capable with only a tune, but a 750-horsepower, ROUSH Ford Mustang GT has something to say about it

When the Kia Stinger came out in 2017, it changed many people’s perceptions of the Korean brand. It also turned out to be a very quick car that responds very well to minor modifications. With this in mind, YoUTube channel Sam CarLegion has arranged for a tuned Kia Stinger GT to show up on the drag strip. However, it’s not going to run by itself, as it is joined by a ROUSH-modified Ford Mustang GT.
