Dodge Challenger Hellcat Taken To The Only Public Road It Can Legally Unleash Hell: The Autobahn

The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat remains one of the craziest performance cars on the market and more than capable of blasting down a motorway on full boost.

In the years since the Hellcat was released, most of the videos we’ve seen have been filmed in its homeland. Consequently, we haven’t really had the opportunity to see the Challenger unleashed over an extended period of time during a high-speed motorway blast – and such places exist only in certain countries, like Germany and the unrestricted parts of its Autobahn (or Autobahnen, since its the plural).

Dodge claims that the Challenger Hellcat has a top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h) and we have no reason to doubt that. However, the driver of the Hellcat in question wasn’t able to muscle the car up to such speeds and instead decided to let off the throttle at 168 mph (270 km/h). That’s still mighty fast, and much more than you can go on any public road in the United States.

When the Challenger SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat twins were released, the world was left stunned and, despite getting on in age, the duo remain among the most powerful production vehicles in their class. In 2019 specification, the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 of the Challenger Hellcat delivers no less than 717 HP and 656 lb-ft (889 Nm) of torque. All of this power is funneled to the tarmac solely through the rear wheels and, in this example, an eight-speed automatic transmission, as the standard option is a six-speed manual.

    I would love to drive my SRT on the AutoBahn. That would be a nice soothing drive lol

    • Ben

      Is your SRT all stock still?

      • Bash

        Yes

  • Dan Iosubescu

    Yeah …Toyota C-HR is for autobahn …

  • LOOKS LIKE FUN. WITH THE CRAPPY ROADS WE HAVE HERE IN THE US EVEN IF IT WERE LEGAL IT WOULDN’T BE POSSIBLE.

    • Jay

      True, only certain sections of the highway would it be possible. Delaware and Maryland have pretty smooth highways. You can forget PA unless you’re on the turnpike.

      Good lets keep it that way. I have no desire to read about a minivan full of kids getting slaughtered by some knucklehead.

  • Brent Hobgood

    Personally i had my Hellcat to 192 mph when it was stock.The car records your top speed.Its still on my dash cluster.I have the 6 speed version. I still had more power to go faster but I ran out of road.Im sure it will go over 200 in the right conditions.

    It’s both funny and sad that AutoTopNL had to add the “do not attempt“ disclaimer to their videos. I wonder if it was due to the recently changed crappy, biased, and evil YouTube algorithm.

    • wtvlol

      Some stupid people reported his videos for “speeding / street racing”…

      Facebooks power of censorship is unconstitutional and their invasion and disrespect of privacy completely unacceptable. US gov needs to clamp down on pastey face Zuckerberg evil intents

        Unconstitutional? Love it or not, you voluntarily agreed to facebooks terms of service when you checked that little box and clicked enter.

    I find this video quite funny in that they claim professional driver(weird a professional driver would steer with steering wheel up that high!)on the autobahn(no speed limit) high speed test when he never exceeded 160mph and he still had another 40mph to go until he limit, I’ve gone upwards of these numbers in my hellcat on a deserted local highway in winter, so I fail to see the point here?
