1,000 HP Charger Hellcat Lines Up Against Stock Lamborghini Huracan

You know what’s better than 707 HP in a four-door saloon? One thousand horses, that’s what. It’s a surefire way of giving yourself more of a fighting chance against genuine supercars, especially those with all-wheel drive.

Take, for example, the lightweight and nimble Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4, which boasts a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 and a dual-clutch transmission working alongside the AWD.

Unlike the Charger Hellcat, or any stock Hellcat for that matter, the Lambo only packs 610 PS (601 HP), which is still more than enough so as to get you from rest to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.2 seconds. A regular Hellcat has a little more muscle at 716 PS (707 HP), but is also heavier and will definitely not shift as fast as the Italian exotic.

Then there’s the fact that it’s rear-wheel drive, which makes it a lot more difficult to put all the power down on the drag strip. You literally need a perfect start on every attempt if your goal is to truly compete with a bona fide supercar. Moreover, since this particular Hellkitty was tuned to produce 1,000 horses, matching the Huracan’s acceleration off the line is even more challenging.

So which of the two ended up winning the 1/4 mile race? The two were really close – but you’ll have to watch the video to find out the rest.

    Fantastic performance for a stock Huracan.

    What weird is that while both these vehicles would beat a stock Mustang GT, it wouldn’t be by very much.

    • TheAmerican2point0

      Mustang does an 11:83. That’s over a second slower than these two. In drag racing, that is like a couple years.

    • ErnieB

      You can also say that A bolt on tuned Ecoboost could also compete.

  • Bash

    I would love to have that charger as my daily.

    Damn, dude red lights every time..
