What do the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, and Dodge Challenger have in common? Easy – they're all muscle cars that are quite popular in straight-line races in North America.
What happens when these three visit UK's Carwow? A drag race, of course, and that's what we exactly have here. More importantly, these aren't stock examples. All of which are tuned and supercharged, oozing with horsepower and torque firing from all eight cylinders.
The numbers are kind of close between these three, but let's run down the numbers first so we know how comparable these heavy-hitters in black-and-white.

The Mustang here is dubbed by its owner the King Cobra. With a supercharger forcing air into the mill, it puts out the most power – 735 bhp (548 kilowatts) and 509 pound-feet (690 Newton-metres) of torque. These numbers are sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox. It's quite heavy, though, tipping the scales at 1,775 kilograms (3,913 pounds).
On the other hand, the Challenger SRT Scat Pack here makes 650 bhp (485 kW) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. Also rear-wheel-drive, it's the heaviest of the bunch, weighing in at 1,900 kg (4,189 lbs).
Lastly, the supercharged Camaro here contends with the same engine output as the Challenger. However, it weighs the lightest of the three, only tipping the scales at 1,656 kg (3,651 lbs).
The Mustang is definitely the most powerful, but it's significantly heavier than the less powerful Camaro. The Challenger's quite stubby when compared to the two, so with the same power as the Camaro, I'm pretty sure you're not counting on its win. But which among the Ford and the Chevy won the race?
