The people behind love sharing videos where powerful machines are paired in head-to-head straight-line automotive combat. Recently, a unique face-off occurred when a Nissan GT-R lined up at the tree with a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 in the other lane. Both vehicles are far from stock, put down their power via all four wheels and snap off the line as if they were whips cracked by Henry Walton Jones, Jr himself.

Both drivers have a mile to go before they reach the finish line. That distance will be covered in less than 30 seconds. Click past the jump to see who's faster.

      Not bad for an SUV

      Jeep would have won if: a) Driver went to the bathroom beforehand b) It wasn't shaped like a shoe-box (Good looking shoe box at that!) c) Intended Acceleration compared to launch control Not usually a fan of drag races, but when they're close and odd match-ups they can be entertaining
      Ronald. What up?

      I have to say, that was impressive on the Jeep's part. The GT-R is known for dispatching supercars across the globe, but it couldn't quite shake a rolling brick with a modern musclecar engine under the hood. "Blown away" would be an exaggeration. "Snuck past" is a far more accurate description.

      Gotta love Dragtimes--it's like your middle school bench racing fantasies and "What-if's" come to life.

      Love the GTR, but find the GC SRT8 a little overkill for a SUV. Having said that, the current Grand Cherokee (the normal one with a Hemi) has me for the first time ever considering buying a product under the Chrysler umbrella..

        I agree, what's the purpose of a family hauling, boat towing vehicle that can go this fast?

          What's the purpose of a Ferrari, any Ferrari? The point is someone wants that exact vehicle, why not make one?

      Talk about a brick moving through the air. Big handicap for the Jeep up top.

      Expect the expected?

      The Nissan got a jump on the Jeep as if the Jeep driver was not paying attention to the light. Get two pros behind the wheel and I think the result would have been a little closer. The Nissan would have still won because the Jeep transmission is crap (5-speed auto) but it would have been closer.

        mmmhm... In the end you can see elapsed times. That doesn't include reaction time. Comparing ETs, the Jeep actually beat the GT-R @ 1/4 mile. At least in this run

      Pretty much shows that the difference is so negligible that it's not worth real money or any amount of obsession to choose either.

      I think I just shi*ed my pants.

      If you pause it on the times you'll see that the SRT8 had a faster 1/4 mile time and higher speed. The driver lost it on the launch and could never recover. The GTR did have a slightly quicker time in the mile, however.

      talk about sleeping on a light...get the Jeep driver No-Doz and a new set of spark plugs...thought I heard mis fire on top end or didn't he bother to remove speed limiter
