This video clip captures the elusive Hellcat taking on a much less powerful opponent in the Corvette Stingray. With 707-horsepower “right out of the box” the Hellcat is about all that one could hope for from a production vehicle. The Stingray is underpowered by SRT8 standards but it offers a greater degree of performance handling, a lower center of gravity, and a lighter gross vehicle weight.
Sure enough, the lighter and more nimble Stingray gets the hole shot on the big Hemi powered Dodge and holds its own nearly to the eighth-mile marker. Unfortunately for those of us who are die-hard Chevrolet fanatics, the fun ends there. Watch as the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi brings the Hellcat back fast. It blows by the ‘Vette and takes the checkered flag for the win. Maybe a Corvette equipped with the supercharged Z06 package would have been a better test for the Dodge. It is certainly something to think about.
