Dodge Hellcats Drag Racing The Competition

By  | 


By Dave Ashton

If you own a high-powered vehicle such as a Dodge hellcat, it invariably invites competition. The Dodge Hellcat in either Challenger or Charger variants have 6.2-liter HEMI V8s with 707HP at their disposal. In the performance car arena, this is the same as waving a red flag at a bull when it comes to other car owners.

The two videos below show a Porsche 911 Turbo S and a C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 going toe to toe with both a Challenger and Charger Hellcat.

The first matchup is with a Porsche and shows a Modded Dodge Charger Hellcat with a E85 tune. The Porsche is no slouch with a 572 hp twin-turbo 3.8-liter engine and weighs in at 3,650 lbs. The Charger in this case is 800 lbs heavier, so it’s down to the usual formulation of can a lighter car with less horsepower beats a heavier car with more power?

The second race involves a Dodge Challenger Hellcat widebody up against a C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. In this scenario, the Hellcat has 717 hp with 656 lb-ft of torque, while the Corvette sports a 6.2-liter V8 with 650 hp. The Charger is still the heavier beast here, being 900 lbs heavier than the Hellcat. Who’d you think will win out of these two heavyweights?

Like all good drag races, it’s best to watch the footage to find out the eventual winner.
