Dodge Hellcat: fastest muscle car ever

by David Zatz on

The National Hot Rod Association has certified a quarter-mile time of 11.2 seconds at 125 miles per hour (mph) for the stock supercharged Dodge Challenger, with stock Pirelli P275/40ZR20 P Zero tires. That makes it the fastest muscle car ever produced.

With drag radials, the run dropped to just 10.8 seconds at 126 mph.

“It wasn’t long ago that a 10-second car, was a full-on race car. The new 2015 Dodge Challenger raises the bar to a level some of us never thought we’d see,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT Brands.

The Challenger’s Hellcat Hemi engine delivers an unprecedented 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, and is the first factory supercharged Hemi V8.

The new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has been redesigned with a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission or six-speed manual, and a new interior inspired by the 1971 Challenger and 1969 ’Cuda. The car will start arriving in Dodge dealerships in the third quarter of 2014.
