The World’s (New) Quickest Hellcat Challenger?

by Patrick Rall on

A new video has surfaced on YouTube showing a 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat blasting down the quarter mile in the low 10 second range and until I see otherwise, I believe this to be the quickest quarter mile time for the new Mopar muscle car. This Challenger runs through the top end in just 10.2 seconds with a trap speed of 136.7 miles per hour, beating anything that I have seen online thus far.

There are no details with this video, so upon first viewing the clip, we didn’t know what kind of work had been done to get this Hellcat Challenger to run a 10.2 at 136mph. We have previously talked about the stock+tires Hellcat Challenger owned by Ricci Cavallaro that has run a best time of 10.71 and there is no measure of weather or track conditions that will cut a half second from the quarter mile time – so we knew right away that there had to be some work done to this car.

We found that this Hellcat Challenger is equipped with a 4 inch custom cold air intake, American racing headers with no catalytic convertors, a meth injection system, and a Nitrous Express 100 shot – all of which were brought together with a solid engine calibration. In other words, this car is far from stock, but that doesn’t change the fact that this Mopar muscle car run a 10.2 quarter mile at 136+ miles per hour.

So until I see proof of another 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat running numbers better than 10.2 at 136 miles per hour, I am inclined to call this the quickest Hellcat car in the world. Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
