Thrills without the legal bills.
There’s a long list of things you shouldn’t do in a car, and racing the police is certainly near the top. However, there’s one setting where it’s not only allowed but encouraged, and two Dodge Challengers seized that opportunity. A new video from the Wheels YouTube channel shows a Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye and a Challenger Hellcat lining up alongside a Colorado State Patrol Dodge Charger at a local drag strip.
The Charger is at a massive disadvantage compared to the two Challengers. The sedan’s abysmal quarter-mile times suggest it likely has the 3.6-liter V6 under the hood, which should make 292 horsepower (217 horsepower). The optional 5.7-liter Hemi V8 would still be far below the Hellcats’ outputs. The Redeye has Dodge’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that produces 797 horsepower (594 kW). The regular Hellcat, which uses the same engine, is likely making 707 hp (527 kW). The police car doesn’t even stand a chance. For the full story and video, check out this article from Motor 1.
