If these two planes had a race across the Atlantic Ocean, who do you think would win? The fastest production bomber or the fastest commercial aircraft?

The Hustler had a top speed of 1600 mph and an MTOW of 175,000lbs

The Concord had a MTOW of over 400000 lbs and max speed pf Mach 2 as well.

I am unsure if the quoted range for the B-58 is at its max speed. So I would have to give the nod to the COncord as the B-58 May not be able to do it at high speed without an a-a refueling which would put it behind.

Now if you want to compare it with say the XB-70 which is more approprite secondary to size of the aircraft it is a different story.
