If any vehicle is going to raise the stakes for record beating strip times, it going to be some permutation of a Dodge Challenger Hellcat. In this case its the Vixen Hellcat, which has recently proven itself with a 3.99 8th mile time at Cecil County Dragway. Basically, making this Dodge Challenger one of the quickest Mopars in the world.

As in the video above, the moment was captured in fine detail from trackside and inside the car. This at least gives some idea of how the power was laid down. So, what goes into a machine capable of these power levels and time?

Everything on this car has been purpose-built, which starts with an all tube chassis. Under the hood is with 528 cubic inches Hemi V8 from Disomma Racing, fitted out with a pair of 98-millimeter turbochargers. This produces an incredible 5000HP for the 3,000lb. machine which translates to the track in a 3.99 second time at 197 miles per hour.
