0 to 1320 Feet in What? Chrysler Posts 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat 1/4-Mile Time


Since Dodge officially announced that its supercharged 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat would pack 707 earth-shaking horsepower, just about the only things left to mystery are the car’s performance numbers. While we always gather our own numbers—and we’re really looking forward to strapping our own test gear to the car—Dodge released a video today that shows the big brute at the strip posting an NHRA-certified quarter-mile time.

The results: A blistering 10.85 at 126.18 mph. For comparison’s sake, we’ve squeezed 12.3 at 119 from the Camaro ZL1 and 11.8 at 125 from the Shelby GT500. Running a 10-second quarter is a major feat for any car, regardless of power, much less a showroom-spec car on street-legal tires. If the 707-hp figure wasn’t warning enough, the 1/4-mile  run is an additional shot flung across the bows of Ford and GM. We can’t wait to see them return fire.
