800HP Mustang Owner Thinks It Will Be “Very Easy” To Beat Charger Hellcat

As standard, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is the most powerful combustion-powered sedan on the market thanks to its 707hp 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine.

Despite that, the confident owner of an 800 rwhp Ford Mustang was sure he could beat a Hellcat down the quarter mile in the U.S. recently. Unfortunately for him, the Hellcat he raced was far from stock.

While the Mustang’s 5.0-liter V8 has been upgraded with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger, the Hellcat has also benefited from numerous performance changes, resulting in a total of 850 hp to the rear wheels. Nevertheless, the Mustang guy says it “should be very easy” to beat the Hellcat. Boy was he in for a rude shock.

As soon as the two launch off the line, the heavier Hellcat immediately pulls away, thanks in part to its 8-speed automatic transmission. The Mustang owner meanwhile is left to row his own gears in the distance as the Hellcat pulls further and further away.

Unless you own a Tesla or a supercar, it’s probably wise to stay away from the Hellcat twins.
