Corvette ZR1 Vs. Challenger Hellcat 1/4 Mile Drag Race

Do you remember the Green Hellcat that spanked a Tesla S P85D a few weeks ago? Well, this beast is back and it’s going against Corvette ZR1 at the same drag strip as before. Unfortunately, this drag race didn’t quite go as planned.

It seems the Hellcat jumped on the start much sooner, while the ZR1 owner appeared to be asleep at the wheel for the first second or so. Besides from not launching at green, the Hellcat got a perfect run, in the end doing the quarter mile in 10.933 seconds at 125.3 mph.

Just to say that the Challenger Hellcat is the most powerful production muscle car ever, with 6.2-liter V-8 delivering no less than 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. The model also carries a lot of weight though, which is why the less-powerful and much-lighter Corvette ZR1 shouldn’t have been such an easy prey at the drag strip. Check the video below and see what happened.
