2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Runs 10-Second 1/4 Mile

After Dodge revealed their new 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat would be packing 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque right from the factory (through a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8), we already knew this thing would be fast. With that being said, we aren’t sure we were quite ready for a 10-second quarter mile right out the gate.

Today the American auto maker released their first video of this thing to the drag strip, and the results are impressive to say the least. Equipped with a completely factory setup (aside from a set of street-legal drag radials), the new Hellcat ran a 10.85 second time at 126.18 mph off the showroom floor. To help put things in perspective a bit, the Camaro ZL1 ran a 12.3 at 119 mph while the Shelby GT500 was nearly a full second slower than the Hellcat running a 11.8 at 125 mph. Does this make the new Challenger SRT Hellcat the fastest factory muscle car planet? Enough talking, it’s time for you to see this monster in action.
