    Dodge Challenger Hellcat vs fighter jet drag race (VIDEO)

    Challenger Hellcat vs Fighter jet

    America’s most powerful production muscle car, the 707hp Challenger Hellcat takes on a fighter jet in an epic race down the runway.

    It’s the classic fast car versus some other kind of vehicle race, only the other vehicle isn’t a motorcycle or a boat or even a helicopter. No, the other vehicle is a deadly F16 fighter jet flown by one of the handiest pilots in the business.

    The Challenger is the most powerful production muscle car in the world and its mental 6.2-litre supercharged V8 develops a staggering 707hp. SRT claim the Hellcat can hit 60mph in the low three seconds range and cover the quarter mile in a scarcely believable 10.8 seconds. This is a ten second car that you can buy from any Dodge dealership for less than $60,000 with a warranty. They say it even handles relatively well, but lets be honest, the Hellcat is all about going in a straight line fast. Really fast. Which is why the people at Road and Track magazine had a Challenger Hellcat delivered to an airport in Miami to see whether the mighty muscle car would stand a chance against the king of the skies – the F16.

    Check out the video to see which high horsepower monster comes out on top.

    Badass Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Runs The Quarter Mile In 11.2 Secs (VIDEO)

    With a 707-horsepower, supercharged V-8 under the hood, we knew the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was going to be quick, but the official quarter mile times for the car are simply epic. With its available Pirelli P Zero tires, the latest Dodge muscle car will run the quarter mile in just 11.2 seconds with a 125 mph trap speed. Add drag radials, however, and you’re looking at time of just 10.8 seconds at 126 mph. Yes, the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat is a 10-second car… from the factory.

    That makes it comparable with a long list of supercars on the strip, but more importantly it means the Challenger SRT Hellcat is quicker than the competition such as the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 and Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, at least in a straight line.

    Not surprisingly, the fastest muscle car ever is also the most powerful muscle car ever, due to its advanced supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8. Thanks to a host of technology, the engine churns out a massive 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.

    Production of the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat gets underway at the Challenger’s plant in Brampton, Ontario in the coming months. The first examples are due in Dodge dealerships in the third quarter of the year.

    We can’t wait to take it for a spin and see it on our local roads. A second video from Dodge allows us to experience the latter. First we get to see the car on some back roads, and then it hits the drag strip where a little burnout action takes place. In the final moments there’s a little bit of track action to enjoy, although it doesn’t seem like the driver is pushing things.
