Following today’s announcement that the Corvette Z06 will accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill in a blistering 2.95 seconds, TorqueNews is reporting that the Charger SRT Hellcat will do it in 2.9 seconds when equipped with drag radials. Even more impressive, the 707-hp sedan ran the quarter mile in just 10.7 seconds, showing just how much of an improvement drag radials can make on a high-performance vehicle.
With stock tires, the Charger SRT Hellcat runs the quarter mile in 11.2 seconds despite its 4,500-lb weight and it’ll be interesting to see the battles going down at your local racetrack once these high-powered muscle cars start arriving at dealerships.
