This is pointless. An escalade is even more expensive (or about the same, at least in Canada) than a GT-R. If you put the amount of money that it was needed for the Escalade to do so in the GT-R, it wouldn't be the same anymore...


Like cmon. But still, pretty funny though.

It would be fun tooling around in that, but as someone who has to run a Suburban, you're going to be at the gas station a lot. And my Suburban only has 300HP.

It probably did, but it's a Cadillac. It's a mobile HOME.

With launch control that caddy would have been taken care of. Funny how a simple ECU tune and the GTR will demolish that behemoth of a thing.

We do get the point that "yes an escalade, a big ass SUV, can beat godzilla", but we are just stating that this point is irrelevant...
