No, it’s not some exotic niche supercar but a humble Dodge that holds the record for the “The Fastest Four Cylinder Production Car On The Planet.” The car was run by Salt Lake City’s Jorgen Moller, who pushed the heavily modified Dodge SRT-4 to a top speed of 222.416mph (357.934km/h). However for the official record the lesser figure of 221mph (355.66 km/) was used because the average of the two best runs are used in such records.

The car ran in the production class for 2.1 to 3.0-litre supercharged/turbocharged vehicles at an event held at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. To achieve this amazing result the Dodge SRT-4's turbocharged 2.4-litre mill was pushed to produce in excess of 700hp (520kW).

  1. Thats awesome, but you should put this into Context. This is the Worlds fastest production 4 cylinder over a long distance. There is a Mitsubishi eclipse that runs a 6.86 at 200mph in the 1/4 mile with a 2.0liter 4 cylinder. Thats 0 to 200 mph in 6.8 seconds!!!!! I'm sure it takes this dodge over a minute to get to 222 mph. Its still very impressive though. I like the dodge neons. I think dodge may have gotten a little training From Mitsubishi on how to make a Badass 4 cylinder. Afterall Chrysler is Part of DSM motors. You guys should just pray no one decides to go after your record with an All Wheel Drive EVO.

  2. ^ hes probably right but they did do an awesome job on the look for that car and its performance... ive got e red one and i love just sitting in it and just revvin it a little... its hard for me to stay under the speed limit on I-10 hahaha

  3. Drag racing is deiffrent setup. Many 4g63's have made attempts at the record before and have had it in mitsu mirage body. Remember this record has to be run twice, one right after another. Also it has to be for 5 miles i think. drag cars are sprint runners, not marathon. Nothing against mitsubishi, it my fav brand i own the new outlander.

  4. i gotta say thats pretty amazing getting to 700hp with that car, but then again i bet other people can do better with other heavily modified cars too. it just hasnt been done yet.

    -it doesn't matter how good you are, there is always going to be someone better. remeber the goal of the game is to try to beat as much people as u can before u get beat :) that's what counts!!

  5. For the person who said dodge must have had help from mitsubishi, your right. Dodge did use mitsubishis one piece turbo in the srt4.

  6. I was wonering where does opel calibra stand!
    V4 2.0 16V

  7. hey man im going to have to disagree a Suzuki Hayabusa is the fastest four cylinder

  8. Sorry daltonv i gotta disagree with you the Hayabusa is an 8 cylinder

  9. A-Rob, your a little out of it man, a "Busa" is a Motorcycle.. and it is a 4 pipe bike.. not 8.
    I think you should know what you are talking about, before you make a post to "correct" someone.

  10. it's kinda a bad comparrison as even some v8 muscle cars have a hard time beating sport bikes

  11. Hey guys just letting you know there is a major stuff up in this!!

    a stock standard production vehicle means that it is NOT modified. therefore this car is not the worlds fastest standard production 4 cylinder.

    production vehicle means as it says, completely standard as the vehicle was when it left the factory.

    You should be looking more toward the mitsubishi lancer evolution or WRX sti impreza.
