Dodge Hellcat Brothers Go Head To Head In 1,414 HP Battle

If there’s anything that can stop the world’s fastest production sedan, it’s its equally powerful brother in arms, the 707 HP Dodge Challenger Hellcat.

What we have here are two somewhat similar cars in terms of size and weight, both packing a 6.2 liter supercharged HEMI V8, producing 707 HP to go with 880 Nm (650 lb-ft) of peak torque.

These two are indeed a bunch of heavy hitters as far as the drag racing world is concerned, and we were just itching to see them face each other from either a rolling start or a standing start – made no difference.

Aside from the final race, all the other ones had rolling starts where we could clearly see the Challenger just edge ahead by a pretty small margin.

Even though we see it beat the Charger Hellcat (on paper) every single time, the difference is pretty insignificant in real-world conditions such as going flat out on the autobahn or stepping on the throttle from intersection to intersection.

The only clear reason why the Challenger pushes a little bit harder is the 54 kg (120 lbs) weight advantage.

It’s not much, but it’s enough to make a tiny difference, which is exactly what we’re seeing in the video.

What’s funny is that whenever two equally fast cars go head to head, it’s harder to get a proper sense of speed from either of them and so it looks like they’re going pretty slow.

But trust us, there’s nothing slow about 707 HP and 11 second 1/4 mile times.
