'05 Impala Vs. SVTF

Yeah, on 69, headed west around the Dewitt area. My buddy is letting his freind drive his Impala, becuase he needs to operate his camera for a documentary he's doing.

So, we're crusin about 70 when he pullsup beside me, and he motions to his buddy to punch it. I see the Impala lurch forward a bit, and I drop it down into fourth and gun it.

Gained on him massively, shifted to fifth, and made the gap even bigger, and by the time I was ready to shift into 6th, I was at least 5 car lengths ahead.

After my friend had enough footage we exited and pulled over to a gas station and got some goodies.

My friend's buddy was like..."Damn! Is that thing supercharged?"

I was like..."Nope, as stock as it gets!"

I <3 SVT

Here's the link to the video.

I've beat a couple of those new Impala's and Monte's. They're big and heavy and as far as i know they're V6, not SC or TC. But i think that the SS is supercharged but i'm not 100% on that. I do know that the Dale Earnhart edtion Monte SS was.

Either way good job on the kill. It's quite funny to get people's reactions to a good ol'4banger

Not to be offensive, but it doesn't look like the Impala "punched" it or that it was even trying. Looks like it was just beside you filming.

Was the Dale Earnhardt "Initimidator" edition supercharged? I thought those came out before the Monte Carlo SS was supercharged.

Um, looks to me he wasn't even trying. Nice kill if he was. My bro says the SVT and 3.8L would be close, but the supercharged 3.8L would walk it.
