In this Hoonigan video a 1988 Pontiac Trans Am sqares off agaisnt a 2020 Ferrari 488 Pista

On paper, the Trans Am has its work cut out, as the Ferrari is lighter and more powerful

But what about torque and response?

The Trans Am rims are a nice throwback to the 1980s, while the Ferrari's color scheme commemorates racing cars of old

The 488 Pista also boasts two-piece brushed forged wheels that match the "Argento Nurburgring" color

Is the Ferrari making victory donuts or is it simply warming up the tires?

You can never be too sure, when up against a Supercharged V-8

The Ferrari 488 Pista boasts blue racing seats, perfectly matching the blue racing stripes on the exterior

This Trans Am has 610 horsepower, but it looks so clean, you could never tell

It has an LSA 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 out of a 2014 Camaro ZL-1

The owner is quite fond of the funky steering wheel. Very 1980s.

The 488 Pista has a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V-8

It makes 730 horsepower and has the response to match normally-aspirated engines
