Dodge believes in one core value, all tires must die. If they didn’t believe that so badly, how else could you think about the poor tires that have been roasted on a Challenger SRT Hellcat or a Charger SRT Hellcat.
Well, they are at it again with their Dodge Challenger Drag Pak. We are talking enough V8 power that the rubber on these cars won’t know what hit them.

How’s this for a battle between two icons of our time? In one corner sits the car of the future. Decked out in sleek black, it’s the Tesla Model S P85D. Riding 691 ponies to reach 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds, the P85D’s electric engines – that’s right, it has a motor for each set of wheels – is the kind of thing science fiction writers would put under the hood of a flying car.
In the other corner sits the throwback. In lime green, it’s the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Sure, gas-guzzling muscle cars might have had their heyday decades ago, but the Hellcat is living proof there is definitely still a place for them in this increasingly environmentally concerned world. True, the only thing green about this car might be the paint on its exterior, but some people are willing to overlook that for the insane 707 horsepower it has under the hood.
Both the Lamborghini Aventador and Nissan GT-R are some pretty great supercars. How they go about getting all that power to ground is different with the GT-R being essentially a supercomputer on wheels and the Aventador is more of an old school brute force machine. That isn’t to say that the Lamborghini is not technically advanced, but it has more of a heart instead of having the technology get in between you and the driving experience.
This video is of a drag race of the two supercars. Both cars are fast, but can the V-12 Italian keep up with all the technology in the Japanese supercar? Checkout the video and see which car is the faster of the two (at least in a straight line).
