Who do you think won? The answer might surprise you.

Here is a duel that we wouldn’t think we’d see in a million years: Shelby GT 350 vs. your common harvester. In this competition between a car royalty against a piece of farm equipment, there is a lot to surprise you. 

To give you an idea of what we are confronted with here, the ultimate muscle car Shelby GT 350 has a 302-cubic-inch V8 engine while the farm equipment in question here happens to have a 1976 Cadillac Eldorado 8.2 V8 engine.

You might be thinking that those numbers don’t add up, and yes, they don’t. The iconic Shelby is against the fastest combine harvester which weighs 4,000 pounds and packs 500 horsepower and has a top speed of 95 mph! We can say that this combine harvester is a tough nut to crack. 

While we don’t want to spoil the result, we should say that driving the harvester looks just as fun as driving the Shelby GT 350. Imagine plowing through yellow wheat fields at 95 mph, that’d be a fun and ridiculous ride.
