Godzilla versus an SUV? That doesn’t sound like a fair fight, yet Drag Times arranged exactly that matchup--between a 550-hp Nissan GT-R Stage 2 and a force-fed, 640-hp Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8. The results are perhaps predictable, but closer than one might imagine.

The race appears to take place outside the United States--the track is demarcated in meters--yet the results are displayed in Yank units. We’ll have to take Drag Times at its word regarding the results data at the very end. Assuming the timing is accurate, those are some impressive numbers, indeed.
