Hellcat Charger Stomps an Aventador in Half-mile Roll Race: Track Time Tuesday
World’s fastest sedan beats one of the world’s fastest supercars, and the Charger isn’t all that heavily modified.
This week’s Track Time Tuesday comes to us from the YouTube channel of Tommy Peters and it features a Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat handing a Lamborghini Aventador a pretty serious beating in a half-mile roll race. This action was captured at an Omega Motorsports No Fly Zone event, where high performance beasts like the two in the video are free to stretch their legs in a safe environment.
Well, it was safe for the Charger, but as badly as the Lamborghini was beaten, it didn’t prove to be safe for the driver of the $400,000 supercar.
The video above shows a 2016 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat taking on a 2018 Lamborghini Aventador in a high speed, half-mile battle. In stock form, the Lamborghini has more power and weighs less than the Charger, while also having the traction advantage that comes with all-wheel-drive. However, the supercharged Dodge sedan is not stock, and while the Aventador isn’t stock either, it doesn’t have enough power to compete with one of the fastest sedans on the street.
The two start at 40 miles per hour and as soon as they hammer down, it sounds as though the Charger is having some traction issues. During this early portion of the race, the Italian supercar keeps the race close, but as soon as the Hellcat gets grip, it begins to walk away. Once the SRT sedan begins to walk away, the Lamborghini driver can’t do anything but watch as the supercharged Mopar super-sedan races off into the sunset.
The Hellcat Mod List
So what does it take to build a Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat that will beat a Lamborghini Aventador in a half-mile roll race? Not much.
This Hellcat has the SRT Autoworks E85 package, which includes a 2.75-inch upper pulley, an ATI 10% lower pulley, ID1300 fuel injectors, an Injected Engineering dual pump setup, catalytic convertor delete pipes and a Legmaker cold air intake, with the entire system being tuned by Tim Barth of Barth Tuning.
The result of this package is 900 rear wheel horsepower, which allows this 4,500-pound Dodge sedan to stomp the 3,500-pound Italian supercar.
