Watch a F-150 Smoke a Mustang GT

By -


This video features a 2011 Ford F-150 pickup racing at Bithlo Dragway against an S197 Mustang GT. In most cases, a race between an F-150 and a Mustang GT would amount to a beating for the pickup but this F-150 is powered by a supercharged 5.0L engine that makes some serious power. In fact, it makes enough power for the big 4-door pickup to hand this Mustang GT a pretty handy beating on the quarter mile.

This video begins by showing the Ford F-150 and the Mustang GT both pulling into the water box, where the camera shows the blown pickup do one wicked burnout during which you can clearly hear the whine of the supercharger. This is followed by an incredibly lame burnout by the Mustang, which then hurries to the line to stage.

As soon as the green light drops, this race is over, as the F-150 jumps out to a big early lead while the Mustang struggles to get off of the line. While the Mustang turns in a generally unimpressive run, the F-150 runs through the traps with an ET of 11.51 and 118 miles per hour.
