Only a week ago we saw what may just be one of the quickest 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcats around, with the car—and its female owner—completing the quarter mile in a time of 10.67 seconds. We now have video of a 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat that’s even quicker—a lot quicker.
In this video from YouTube user Ross Kirkendoll, a Challenger SRT Hellcat completes a pass in just 10.03 seconds at 140 mph. That’s an incredible time considering the stock version complete with 707 horsepower needs 10.8 seconds to achieve the same feat when equipped with drag radials (11.2 seconds with ordinary road tires).
And with a little extra tuning, this sinister-looking Challenger SRT Hellcat may just be the first to enter the 9-second bracket.
Given its performance potential and reasonable pricing, it’s little wonder that the Challenger SRT Hellcat is selling at almost double the rate Dodge had envisaged. The automaker is increasing numbers for the coming 2016 model and bringing forward the production start date, but unfortunately that means some buyers still waiting for a 2015 model will have their orders canceled.
