Dodge Charger Hellcat Challenges Nissan GT-R To 1/4 Mile Race

It’s safe to say that in drag racing circles, the Nissan GT-R, Godzilla itself, is one of the most feared opponents one could face. The Hellcat however, has a huge bulls-eye on its rear.

The reason for that is that the Hellcats (either one of them) are extremely powerful, which makes owners of such models a little too cocky for those who appreciate weight over power.

Last month we saw this very same Charger Hellcat take on a stock Z06 C6 Corvette with unfortunate results – for Dodge fans. Now, we’re looking at pretty much the same situation, though the GT-R has even more power than the C6 Z06 and can cover a quarter mile in the 10-second range.

Plus, the Nissan’s AWD system helps it put its power down a lot more efficiently while accelerating.

If you pay close attention to the video, you’ll notice the Hellcat get off the line first (better driver reaction time), but by the time the GT-R comes back into focus, it’s already caught the Charger before leaving it way behind midway through the race.

The GT-R finished its best run in 10.7 seconds, while the Charger Hellcat needed 11.5 seconds at first, before scoring 11.4 seconds on a second try.

I have to admit, I was expecting this to be a little closer at first, but once you stop to think about it, there was no way the GT-R was losing this race.

I doubt the Challenger Hellcat would have more success.

    Doubt that GTR was stock. Never seen one run a 10.7 before. That’s mighty quick!

    Wow, I thought these cars were supposed to be fast. Any little 600 sport bike will smoke these cars. A 1000 sport bike or Hayabusa would just laugh at these cars.
