The Hennessey Velociraptor V8 isn’t a vehicle you’d normally associate with street racing, or just racing in general, but that’s exactly what the Texas-based tuner did when it pit the truck against a 2020 Toyota GR Supra. Just to recap the latter is powered by a turbocharged BMW-sourced 3.0L inline-six engine generating 335 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque, while the truck sports a supercharged 5.0L V8 producing 758 hp at the crank.

Before you dismiss the truck, make sure to keep in mind that while the Velociraptor V8 has more than double the power output of the Supra, it’s also carrying around an additional 2,000-pounds. In the first drag race, the Velociraptor and Supra appear to be even, but the second pull may surprise you.
