2015 Chevrolet Camaro vs. 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat
Comparison: 2014 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 vs. 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Hellcat Dogfight: Mopar and GM Square off for the Musclecar Title Taking a look at some of America's most iconic manmade machines over the past century or so reveals much about our national psyche. The World War II Iowa class battleship was among the most powerful ever built, with 212,000 shaft horsepower, nine 16-inch guns, and a displacement of 58,000 tons by the time it went out of service. The big Grumman F6F Hellcat was one of the deadliest naval fighters of all time. The Saturn V rocket is the tallest, heaviest, and most powerful rocket ever made, producing more than 1 million pounds of thrust. Big power isn't just limited to our war and space machines. Our cars are powerful too, as evidenced by the two iconic musclecars gracing this article. The recently refreshed 2014 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is the most powerful Camaro ever made, with 580 hp on tap. The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, also new this year, is among the most powerful mass-production vehicles ever made, with 707 screaming ponies under the hood. With Ford and its 662-hp Shelby Mustang currently out of the production, the Camaro ZL1 and Challenger Hellcat and their combined 1287 horsepower represent the two toughest musclecars around. Comparing the 707-hp Challenger Hellcat to the 580-hp Camaro ZL1 isn't exactly a one-sided affair. Both musclecars are powered by supercharged 6.2-liter V-8s, with the Camaro's LSA featuring a 1.9-liter Roots type blower, while the Challenger's Hemi Hellcat has a 2.4-liter Lysholm blower on top. Though the Camaro only produces an SAE-certified 580 hp and 556 lb-ft of torque compared to the Challenger's 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque (at the crank; see our the related Challenger/Camaro blog for wheel hp, it makes up the difference with a curb weight about 400 pounds less than the Challenger's. Besides, the Camaro beat the 662-hp 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 in its last go-around. The Challenger sports the optional eight-speed automatic (a six-speed manual is standard) and the Camaro has the standard six-speed manual. Both cars feature electronically adjustable suspensions and a variety of performance driving modes. While the Camaro behaves like a sports car, the Challenger pretends to be nothing else than a straight-line dragster, and when you toss a corner its way it can be a handful. As associate editor Scott Evans put it, the Hellcat handles "just like a Challenger. Understeer into the corner, oversteer out." The quickest way around the figure eight ultimately was the old tried and true racing mantra of "slow in, fast out" as you lap the boat-like car. The result is still pretty impressive, even if it doesn't feel it, with a 24.7-second figure-eight time with a 0.85 average g, and a 0.94 lateral g average skidpad performance. The Hellcat may not inspire confidence in the corners, but it'll do the most glorious drifts you can possibly imagine as it shreds through its rear tires.

Turbos FILLED With Sand! 3000hp Camaro Goes OFF Track!
Doug Cline was having trouble with his 3000hp twin turbo Camaro on the last day of Rocky Mountain Race Week, and to his surprise, after pushing through some fuel build up off the line his car did 190mph after breaking up through the starting line! Unfortunately, Doug chose not to pull the chutes and it costed him potentially two turbochargers after filling them with gravel & sand! Driving 1300+ miles and thrashing on this big block chevy twin turbo’d beast of a Camaro probably didn’t help in split second decisions down the drag strip. Check out this feature as we follow Doug on his journey into the sand pit!
