Default 2015 Challenger Hellcat run 10.8 1/4 mile....

.....on drag radials. It runs 11.2 on the stock 275s. HP and TQ numbers have also been released. 707 HP and 650 TQ. Impressive car for sure, but in my opinion if you're spending 80K you should get more than a set of 275s to try to put down 707 HP. Maybe the car would even sneak into the 10s with a 305.

10.85 on drag radials and rich idiot behind the wheel. Imagine what it would run with a real drag racer behind the wheel.

What makes you say that? The test was run by Dodge so I would assume they had a good driver behind the wheel.

The video that I saw had Richard Rawlings of Gas Monkey Garage running the 10.85 against his drinking buddy.

I saw today Chrysler is selling the Hellcat for 60,990 including destination charges. And the RT 392 Scat Pack is going for 39,490 which is cheaper than last years 392 SRT Core

This is a bad ride! I was reading comparisons a while back that pitted the SRT8 against a Shelby 350 and the Camaro which were both supercharged. Not really a fair comparison...but now... They can rerun that test!

Yeah I'm pretty excited to see the new tests that the various auto rags will be running.
