254 MPH? Is that the speed limiter? Because there’s no way in hell a hellcat is even close to that, it’s like barely 200. There’s like 4 cars in the world that can go 250 and they’re Bugatti’s and Hennessey’.

That 254mph is the speed the fuel is programmed to cut off at...does not mean the car will reach it...just like speedometers don't necessarily mean the car can go that fast. Although considering how much fuel is consumed at WOT and the size of the OEM tank you may run out of gas trying to attempt a top speed run with Demon.

Ah, I did not know there was a (Y) rating.

Lol that’s what I figured and it’ll drop the weight so you can go even faster!

Yes, that is almost always the case for speed limiting a car.

Add the Rimac C_ Two- a semi-autonomous all-electric sports car designed and manufactured by the Croatian automotive manufacturer, Rimac Automobili- to the super car list. It's performance specs are amazing: 0-60 mph= 1.9 sec.; top speed= 258 mph; horsepower= 1,914 (0-186 mph= 11.8 sec.).

I took the SRT for a 40 mile trip up I-75 last week. Decided to see what she could do. I don't tell this to just anybody, especially on a public forum, but FWIW, I put up some amazing numbers. Can ya believe 32 at 63? Now those are numbers worth braggin' about
