707HP 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Does 1/4 Mile in 11.2 Seconds!

For many, the Challenger looks outdated and border comic-eqsue, especially when opted with 1970s-style flamboyant colors, flashy pin stripes and decals, but no one can deny that its flagship edition, the 707hp 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is one helluva fast machine.

How fast? How about a National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) certified quarter-mile time of 11.2 seconds at 125mph (201km/h) with stock Pirelli P275/40ZR20 P Zero tires, which drops to just 10.8 seconds at 126mph (203km/h) with drag radials?

Just to get an idea of what kind of 1/4 mile times we’re talking about here, with regular road tires, the Hellcat not only trumps its direct competition like the Camaro ZL1 that does it in 11.96-second at 117 mph (188 km/h), but it’s also faster than the 2014 Viper SRT GTS (11.4 seconds) and the last Corvette ZR1 (11.4 seconds)!

After these results, Dodge’s well-oiled marketing machine touted the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 Challenger Hellcat SRT as the “fastest and most powerful muscle car ever”

“It wasn’t long ago that a 10-second car, was a full-on race car. The new 2015 Dodge Challenger raises the bar to a level some of us never thought we’d see,” said Dodge boss, Tim Kuniskis. “Not only can Challenger run 10s on the drag strip, but you can also fit your family and drive cross country. This new 2015 Dodge Challenger is the ultimate GT muscle car.”

We wonder how Ford and GM will respond…
