Ralph Gilles Does Ridiculous Burnout in Hellcat Challenger

Ralph Gilles Does Ridiculous Burnout in Hellcat Challenger

Last week at the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals, Chrysler Motorsports CEO Ralph Gilles let his childish side show in front of a big crowd.

During a presentation there, the executive lit up a pair of rear tires to demonstrate something you probably already know: the newest Challenger is great for making smoke clouds. Last week, the company also suggested the car is capable of running the quarter-mile in under 11 seconds when it released a video of the guys from Gas Monkey Garage driving it down a drag strip and supposedly achieving that time.

AutoGuide.com will be driving the new Challenger during a media preview later this month in Oregon.

    Shouldn’t he be coming up with products that actually sell?

    Amateur comment from an amateur troll.

    Dodge, Mopar, Chrysler and Ralph have their hi tech team together. To make these hp & torque numbers, which are fact by the way, meet EPA guidelines, maintain factory air, power everything is simply bad to the bone. Super bad to the bone is effortlessly making 640 HP and 600 ft lbs of torque and keeping it naturally aspirated as the VIPER! That is SUPER CAR ENGINEERING.

    I agree but one point is not correct. Like the brother 392 the new hellcat does not meet EPA regs and thus a huge gas guzzler tax is applied. Other than that its a monster.

    Agree agree from a vette owner and future (2016) hellcat owner. I was going to buy a Z06 depending on price point but come on man the monster hellcat is it! Nothing better on this planet as we speak. Maybe the next gen Camaro will be equipped with the LT4 option with at least 600 hp and weighing around 3500 lbs. Then come the Ford GT500 for 2016 which should pack as much hp as the hellcat and yes lighter and yes probably faster but not a cruiser or car that could lap the US in comfort. Give me the red key fob now!
