Video: Holden Caprice SS Drag Races a Dodge Challenger SRT8 in Saudi

It may not be Tuesday but it’s a drag race nonetheless...so Happy Monday.

On a closed down strip of road somewhere in the middle of Saudi Arabia, two examples of pure American muscle battle it out in a classic drag race as the sun sets over the desert plains.

Cherry Red coated with a horizontal black line running from front to rear, the Dodge Challenger SRT8 looks the part and with its 6.4-liter V8 HEMI under the hood rated at 465hp and capable of 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds, backs up its good looks with scintillating performance. The Holden Caprice SS on the other hand is more Q-car than supercar killer, with understated sedan features married to a 360-hp 6.0-liter V8 engine. The car is currently used by Middle East police forces such as the Dubai Police Force and Royal Oman Police, while stateside, better known as the Pontiac G8 (RIP), a specially-equipped version has entered service as a Police Patrol Vehicle.
