2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Runs 10.8-Second 1/4 Mile

The most powerful Dodge ever built, the 707-hp Challenger SRT Hellcat, will run a quarter mile on the drag strip in 10.8 seconds when equipped with a set of street legal drag radial tires. 

Running on the stock Pirelli P Zero tires the time climbs to a still impressive 11.2 seconds. Both times have been certified by the NHRA. Trap speed for the production tires sits at 125 mph, while the drag radials increase the trap speed to 126 mph.

With that 10.8-second quarter mile, the Challenger SRT Hellcat will beat a 2012 Ferrari 458 Italia, a McLaren MP4-12C and match the 2013 Nissan GT-R out there on the drag strip.
