Dodge Challenger Hellcat races Chevrolet Corvette Z06, destruction is over
The Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Chevrolet Corvette Z06 C7 were introduced for the 2015 model year. And while they’re obviously not direct competitors, enthusiasts have driven them ever since. This is the case with the adventure we have here, which sees the Vette and the Mopar machine fighting quickly.
And yes, this is a production example of the muscle car, which means its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 produces 717 horsepower (727 PS) and 656 lb-ft (889 Nm) of torque.
As for the Golden Bowtie corner, it is occupied by a Corvette Z06 with the eight-speed automatic transmission. Unlike its opponent, the Chevy was invited to the spare parts table, although it only has a cold air intake, which does not bring a significant increase in production.
Speaking of which, we remind you that the fan that assists the Corvette’s 6.2-liter V8 pushes power to 650 hp (659 hp) and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque. Of course, we can’t discuss such a battle without mentioning the weight difference between the two coupes, which stands at around 900 lbs (400+ kg), with the Vette obviously being the lightest car.
The duo competed in a pair of rolling races, but keep in mind not to use such street battles as an example and head to the drag strip when you feel it’s time to fight.
However, such a battle also has an important auditory side. YouTuber Can i be frank, who brought us this adventure, rode a shotgun in the Z06, but you can still enjoy the voice of each vehicle, so we ask you to be the judge of the decibel competition between the Hellcat and the monsters eight-cylinder LT4.
However, these shenanigans are not just about said beasts. You see, the sequence below offers bonus races as well, with players such as a BMW M340i and a generation S550 Ford Mustang tuned with a ten-speed automatic joining the game.
