Challenger Hellcat takes on the Lamborghini Aventador in a Street Race

February 11th, 2015

hellcat-vs-aventadorWatch a 707HP Dodge Challenger Hellcat take on the 700HP Lamobrighini Aventador during a roll race.   While the horsepower numbers are similar at around 700HP each,  the Hellcat carries an additional 400 pounds of weight over the Aventador.   However, that weight penalty doesn’t seem to matter as per the video.  While it’s a close race, you can clearly the Aventaor’s single clutch 7 speed ISR transmission holding the car back.

Of course this was the Hellcat’s race, a roll race, negating the Aventador’s all wheel drive launching capabilities which allow 0-60 MPH in under 3 seconds, something the Hellcat can’t handle unless it’s running on sticky tires, with a proper burn-out, on a drag strip with a decent driver.
