204-mph Charger: 0-60, 0-100 times

by David Zatz on

The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is the fastest sedan Chrysler has ever made, and the most potent muscle car any American company has produced, with an NHRA-certified quarter mile time of 11.0 seconds on street tires.

Another part of the story has just been revealed the Charger Hellcat’s 0-60 and 0-100 performance on drag radials. Using the grippier tires, the four-door sedan ran the quarter-mile in an NHRA-certified 10.7 seconds at 120 mph.

A graphic from the car’s “Performance Pages” showed that the Charger Hellcat can run the 0-60 in 2.9 seconds, with drag slicks.  0-100 mph comes in 7.2 seconds. The quarter mile time was the aforementioned 10.7 seconds. Note: this number is not an official time, and might not be easily reproduced. The 10.7 second time was done on drag slicks, which cannot be used on the street.

Despite being larger than the two-door Dodge Challenger, the Charger has been faster than its sibling in every acceleration test; Challenger’s quarter mile on stock tires comes in 11.2 seconds.  The Charger weighs around 4,500 pounds and can comfortably hold four people and their luggage.

The Charger Hellcat also appear to beat the 2013 Viper, which recorded a quarter-mile of 11.1 seconds at 127 mph on drag slicks, according to DragTimes, which noted Viper’s 0-60 at 3.1 seconds, and 0-100 in 7.1, slightly bettering Charger in 0-100. (Motor Trend obtained a quarter-mile of 11.4 in the Viper with stock tires.) Dodge increased Viper to 645 horsepower this year (with higher gas mileage), but has not released official acceleration times.

The Charger Hellcat appears to easily beat similarly priced Camaros and Mustangs; it also finally beat the past Chrysler top-speed record, set by the Dodge Charger Daytona over 40 years ago.

The only certified time for the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT HellCat is 11.0 seconds at 122.7mph, on street tires.
