    Turbo GMC Sierra Kills Ferrari 458 Italia In Street Race: Video

    In the automotive[​IMG] world, appearances can be deceiving.
    "Sleepers" are vehicles that look innocuous, but can pack devastating power and performance. Like the Q-Ships of World War II, they appear defenseless to lure unsuspecting attackers. The above video presents a classic[​IMG] example.
    It's hard to imagine any kind of pickup truck beating a Ferrari 458 Italia in a drag race, but this turbocharged GMC Sierra walks away from it in a sprint from 30 mph to 150 mph.
    Apparently, even an Italian supercar with a 570-horsepower 4.5-liter V-8 engine isn't safe on the street although--according to Ferrari--it can do 0 to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds, and reach a top speed of 202 mph.
    There's something oddly satisfying about seeing the GMC blow past the Ferrari as if the latter were a Fiat 500L loaded down with kegs for Diddy's desert party. It's great to know that nothing is certain when it comes to automotive performance[​IMG], and capbility of turbochargers.
    It must not have been much fun for the driver of the 458, though. Perhaps a rematch with the new 458 Speciale is in order.
