The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is a beast of a muscle car with 707 horsepower at the disposal of whoever is confident enough to get behind the wheel. The Dodge Charger Hellcat boasts the same ridiculous 707 horsepower, but with two more doors. A couple of guys decided to see what would happen when the two were pitted against each other in a drag race.
Both of these cars are stock, so there’s nothing special hiding under the hood to make one superior to the other beyond what they had when they left the factory. It’s a battle of pure muscle on the open road where the only variable is the skill of the drivers behind the wheels.
The Charger seems to hold its own for a bit, but the Challenger quickly outpaces its brother leaving the guy in the Charger filming as the bright green Challenger drives off into the distance. They were already up to speed on the highway, so this wasn’t a match-up from a dead stop, but it still gives you a good idea of how well the cars compare.
It’d be interesting to see these two take things to a track and run it all again from a dead stop where there was no question about how fast each car was going at the moment they both hit the gas. It’d be a whole lot safer, too.
