Dodge Challenger Hellcat vs. Tesla Model 3 Drag Race proves V8 is still king
Concerned that internal combustion engines die slowly? Well you should be, but it’s a whole different topic that would span many paragraphs. As we said before, until the imminent ICE ban, we should still enjoy some of the magnificent vehicles powered by dead dinosaurs.
Featuring a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that supplies air to the grille and hood air intake, the Challenger SRT Hellcat is a force to be reckoned with, provided those holding the wheel know this. that they do.
707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque transmitted to the rear wheels propel it to 60 mph (96 km / h) in just over 3 seconds, up to 199 mph (320 km / h) / h). With an MSRP of $ 61,465 for the 2021 model year, it doesn’t break the bank either.
Over the years, we’ve seen tons of videos showing the Challenger SRT Hellcat trying its luck against all kinds of machines. He won some, he lost others, but in the end he remained victorious in the eyes of his fans. But can he really put a Tesla in his corner?
This is a delicate question, because it all depends on the configuration of the electric machine and the knowledge of the person seated in the driver’s seat. In this case, you’re about to witness a quarter-mile battle between the Hellcat and a Model 3, proving that ICE-powered cars still have a lot of life in them, and every now and then they can beat fast EVs.
