Hi everyone Matt Watson here from Carlisle so I'm sat in a Toyota Supra which means I've got a three. Litre straight-six turbocharged engine rear-wheel drive 8-speed automatic. Gearbox normally I'd have 340 horsepower but this car has been tuned by Litchfield so it's now:
Got 440 horsepower and 600 Newton meters of torque and I'm gonna drag race it against that over. There I've got guest driver in that.
It's Alex from cars all right Matt but before that I just thought I'd wear this cap reasons. I'm in the 5 litre v8 Mustang 450 horsepower 530 and Newton meters we've.
Got a 10 speed automatic gearbox interestingly don't have launch control in this that's a manual. Only model option which is really stupid.
Bizarrely this Supra is more expensive it's like 53 grand and I've got way less. Power than you so thread and 40 horsepower we know that.
The Supra does not have 340 horsepower you can see that on the car throttle video over there we don't:
Know tested it and it produced way more than that secondly you've got some decals on your car Litchfield now I've been to Litchfield nice place. Not sure why you don't want to put:
It on your car it's a nice Cathedral. City in your car as well we're definitely not having launch control on at all you can trust:
Me all righty all right I wonder if we can beat him stop come on Mustang oh no sideways?

Quickly to the starter but the car struggled for traction in the first 20 meters. Spinning up its wheels despite this though the Litchfield subra still crossed the line in an impressive 12.1 seconds meanwhile.
Alex in the Mustang did the quarter-mile in 12 point 7 seconds we can have a rolling race from 50 miles an hour cars.
In dry comfort mode just chilling I'm going. To count it in by 5 liters by you're.
Slow Oh God look how heavy it is this is pretty hard on the brakes Wow well speaking. Of that let's see what it's actually like in a brake test I like doing emergency brake tests not in my own car though. Let's get level with me then we'll be about 70 wait wait so slowing that thing right when we get to the line come on Mustang.

Oh well I felt good I'm not that big a fan of the Supra Brillon second thoughts I mean it's quite good in it it's a bit better. Than a Mustang especially if you've got silver stripes down the side that say Litchfield. So the car itself I think it's about 53,000 pounds:
With a basic car and the ECU upgrade! Is less than a grand when and chose to drive the Mustang but mine doesn't.
Sound bad I got this as well well we can all do that I think I'd have more fun in this maybe. Okay you have more fun in that yeah this. Is not gonna go well is it having fun no map hello nice to fear please subscribe to this channel.
