The World's Most Powerful Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Could Be Yours
Back in May, we brought you the story of Glen Watson’s Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, which laid down 1,463.84 horsepower and 1,309.91lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels. Keep in mind that the average Hellcat Charger (or Hellcat Challenger with the 8-speed automatic transmission) offers about 625 horsepower at the rear wheels, so Watson’s Charger is making some 820 more horsepower at the wheels. Both of those numbers are currently unrivaled in the Hellcat community, so this is the most powerful Dodge Hellcat car in the world – Challenger or Charger.
In the right conditions, Watson’s Hellcat Charger should be capable of running an 8-second quarter mile and topping 200 miles per hour in the half mile in addition to beating just about anything on dyno day. I should point out that the car has not seen 200 in the half mile or 8s in the quarter, but with those power numbers and the right conditions – those figures are very possible.
Do you like the sound of that? Well, get this – Glen Watson’s 1,463rwhp Hellcat Charger is for sale and it only costs about $10,000 more than a stock Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat with “only” 707 horsepower.
Buying the World’s Most Powerful Dodge Hellcat Car
The 2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat has a starting price of $68,740 when you factor in gas guzzler tax and destination fees, which includes the supercharged 6.2L engine packing 707 horsepower and 650lb-ft of torque at the crankshaft.
Glen Watson’s Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat with 1,463 rear wheel horsepower – which translates to roughly 1,700 horsepower at the crankshaft (15% drivetrain loss ratio) – is available for just $79,000. This includes the fully built 426 cubic inch Hemi V8 from Ray Barton Racing Engines, the fully built 8-speed automatic transmission from Paramount Performance, a 9” DSS rear differential, Wilwood front and rear brakes, a completely upgraded suspension setup, skinny wheels/tires up front, wide wheels/tires out back, a 6-point roll cage and a parachute.
Basically, this Charger comes with everything that you need to go 200 miles per hour in a half mile and this 1,463rwhp monster Mopar only costs about $10k more than a stock Hellcat Charger. If you are looking to buy a car that will outrun just about anything on the street – or on a quarter mile or half mile drag strip – there is no better deal going than this Dodge Charger.
