Watch Nissan GT-R and Dodge Demon on the race track

Dodge Demon vs Nissan GT-R Nismo Drag Racing at Speed Vegas

The Nissan GT-R and Dodge Challenger SRT Demon are bred from different “brains”. But the two are similar underneath the metallic veneer and high-octane horsepower.  Both ride on ancient platforms – by automotive standards –  released before the Great Recession.

They still ride on the same aging bones. – motor1.com

Instead of replacing the platforms, engineers have refined both over the last decade, squeaking out more power and performance, turning both into high-powered machines. The 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo produces 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque from its twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6, sending power to all four wheels through a six-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 2018 Demon makes 840 hp from its supercharged 6.2-liter V8, delivering it all to the rear wheels – wrapped in Hoosier tires. It weighs 4,280 pounds while the GT-R weighs 3,900 lbs. It’s hard to determine which car has the advantage. The Demon makes more power, but the GT-R is lighter and has all-wheel drive, which helps it put its power to the pavement.

Those two different philosophies deliver similar performance.
