Dodge today released the official quarter mile time of its new Challenger SRT
Hellcat muscle car. With stock Pirelli 275/40 ZR20 P Zero tires, the Hellcat
achieves a quarter-mile time of 11.2 seconds at 125 miles per hour (mph). With
drag radials, the run dropps to just 10.8 seconds at 126 mph.
"It wasn't long ago that a 10-second car, was a full-on race car. The new 2015 Dodge Challenger raises the bar to a level some of us never thought we'd see," said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT Brands. "With the new Challenger SRT Hellcat, we're reaching deep into our history and bringing back the notion from the muscle car era of the street and strip dual-purpose car. Not only can Challenger run 10s on the drag strip, but you can also fit your family and drive cross country. This new 2015 Dodge Challenger is the ultimate GT muscle car."
In addition to the awe-inspiring 707 horsepower of the new Hellcat HEMI, the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has been redesigned and totally re-engineered to be the most true-to-form muscle coupe on the market with performance-enhancing technologies inside and out, including the new TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission or six-speed manual and an all-new interior inspired by the classic 1971 Challenger.
The fastest muscle car ever delivers an unprecedented 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. The Challenger's new 6.2-liter Supercharged Hellcat HEMI engine is also the first factory supercharged HEMI.
The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRTs are built at the Brampton, Ontario, Assembly Plant and will start arriving in Dodge dealerships in the third quarter of 2014.
