Ever wonder how a Mustang drag racer would stack up to a Fiesta ST rally car? Ford thought the same thing, and has brought us this video of Tanner Foust and Roy Hill pitting car against car in a drag race at zMAX Dragway in Charlotte, North Carolina. Will the 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 Cobra Jet or the 2.0-liter four-cylinder Fiesta ST take the title?
Both racers list off what qualities their cars have that make them stand out. I don’t know if doing wheelies, having power windows, doing donuts or jumps is that important when it comes to a drag race, but I’m no expert.
Foust and Hill get behind the wheel of their respective vehicles for some head-to-head action, and although the Cobra Jet may perform like you’d expect, the surprise comes in the form of the Fiesta ST. The numbers are closer than we may have first thought, adding to the surprise. We’re not going to reveal which one wins, however.
In the end, the competitiveness between the two is still alive and strong, poking jabs at one another. Watch the video below to see the Fiesta ST take on the Cobra Jet.
