Like any form of motorsports, drag racing is a passion that never dies. Case in point, check out this woman, who is an admitted "60-some-odd years old," caught in this video taking her murdered-out Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG to the track for a little side-by-side action. As it turns out, drag racing is even a family affair, too, as her husband hits the strip in a second-gen Dodge Viper.

She says that she's been racing since she was a teenager, and she's still logging some solid times in her "not totally stock" Mercedes-Benz, which she claims is laying down around 475 horsepower from a chipped computer and cold-air induction. That's well worth of its "BADBENZ" license plate, if you ask us. The video below shows a short interview with the woman and some proof that this car is no Sunday driver. Excuse us while we hum "The Little Old Lady From Pasadena."

      Wouldn't you feel humiliated getting your doors blown off by the little old lady from Pasadena?

      Wait, did you just call drag racing a motorsport? I am afraid that is incorrect as it requires absolutely no skill and is only for fat, stupid Americans. It makes me sad to see this old yank misuse such a great car from my country.

        Wow you are a D-bag. It's a car, racing another car down a straight. That qualifies it as a Motorsport. Maybe you should ask these guys from your country what they think. http://www.eurodragster.com/links/clubs.asp When you are done, maybe shove a brat in your hole and give some respect to a 60 year old woman doing what most 20-30 year men can't do.

      WTF! She looks like she is 80 years old. Why she look so old for 60? I know many people in their 60's and they don't look that old. WTF!!!

        She's awesome, but she does look ancient. My mom is 56 and looks like she could be this womans daughter (my mother is white/black). She did say "60-something odd years old", so I'm gonna assume she's the maximum age (69). Either way, she's awesome.

      Thanks for the eleven-month old video. I knew it looked familiar.

        Yet I've never seen it and I'm guessing a fair number of other readers haven't either. So...thanks for bringing it to my attention Autoblog.

      Big deal! My mom is past 60 and she's been racing her Ferrari challenge car for years. So, step aside grandma and let my mom show you how it's done!

        Grams kicked that Nissan's ass by 15 car lengths.

        Don't think so, she turned a 11:72, and the Nissan turned a 13 something.

      Not 'murdered out.' The taillights were red, the headlights were white, the chrome was shiny. The only thing on the car was black wheels, which we call 'a car with black wheels.'
