The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat with drag radial tires ran a 10.85 quarter mile - 11.2 with the factory tires. I am wondering if we will see 10 second runs with the factory tires once owners get some seat time?



Hustlin' Hellcat - 707hp 2015 Dodge Challenger Runs a 10 sec 1/4 Mile(Video) - Torque News

In the fine print at the end of the video that shows the new Challenger SRT Hellcat running a 10.85 at 126.18 miles per hour explains that the ten second run was made with drag radial tires. With the stock tires, the Hellcat Challenger “only” ran an 11.2 at 125 miles per hour and that time/speed is NHRA certified. For comparison, the 662 horsepower Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang runs through the quarter mile in fully stock form in 11.5 seconds while a stock Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 will typically run the quarter in the high 11 second range.

That is moving for a car that weighs 4,400lbs. Very nice SRT. Well done.
Imagine what some modifications will do. :facelick:

That is moving for any car. :icon_wink:

I saw a hellcat test car yesterday, the drivers stopped at convenience store for a break.

It was an M6 and was sqeaking the tires at every touch of the throttle as the driver left.

Tires will not last on this vehicle period, and stock ones most likely wont get 10's.

I wish I was there a little sooner, I would have asked to try the stock clutch to see how heavy it is. Thats my biggest issue with my GT500 and my bad left knee. I'm thinking the A8 hellcat may be just the car for me..
