For a car that is almost twice as light as the hellcat, I'd expect it to win too. Especially equipped with a 427 and not to mention sleek aerodynamics. Cool vid!

A GT-40 was always one of my favorite cars.

It's all about power-to-weight.

A GT-40 has 450 hp., but weighs only 2,682 lbs. A Hellcat has 707 hp. but weighs 4,439 lbs.(i.e., it is lugging around an extra ton of weight).

Check out the difference weight can make in drag racing by using this 1/4 mile calculator:
