Charger Hellcat Roasts Audi R8 V10 in Roll Race
Minor mods are all it takes to turn this four-door Hellcat into a supercar-killing machine.
When it comes to exotic machinery, the Audi R8 ranks right up there with the best. Especially when you’re talking about the V10-powered examples, which pack a howling Lamborghini-derived powerplant putting out either 532 or 602 hp, depending on which spec you opt for. Backed up by a lightning-quick seven-speed dual clutch transmission, they’re undeniably fast, ripping off low and even sub 3.0-second 0-60 times with ease. But even that isn’t enough to take out a Charger Hellcat, apparently.
At least not in this video from YouTuber ABun Tv, which depicts our four-door Hellcat taking on an Audi R8 V10 in a roll race. Unfortunately, we don’t know if the Audi is an R8 plus or just the regular V10 model. And yet, the subject matter is still pretty damning for our sad supercar. And, we’d imagine, quite the ego bruiser for its owner. But that’s what happens when you get beat by a car that costs roughly half what yours goes for.
This particular Charger Hellcat isn’t stock, however. It features a few mods, but nothing major. They include a smaller 2.85-inch pulley to up the boost, catless exhaust, Demon injectors, and a tune for both the engine and transmission. The Audi, on the other hand, is completely stock.
On the first run, the Hellcat succumbs to traction issues. But on the next try, it hooks and books ahead of the R8 like it’s been shot from a catapult. And that’s all she wrote, apparently, because the Audi guy didn’t want any more of that sauce.
This little bit of video evidence is just further proof that even with minor mods, a Hellcat can run with anything. No matter how exotic or expensive it might be.
