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).
