Close Race – Challenger Hellcat Redeye vs. 2020 Toyota Supra

February 2nd, 2021

What’s better than a street race (in Mexico, of course)? A close street race that pits two nearly equal participants in a nail-biting contest of speed and guts. That’s what we have here; two cars that are very evenly matched. One is bone stock (except for tires) and the other is minimally modified with only a cat-less downpipe. Without further ado, let’s get down to where the rubber meets the road.

The big Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye features a 6.2-liter HEMI engine with a massive supercharger on top. Despite the fact that the rear-wheel drive Challenger Hellcat Redeye has the potential to make 797hp and 707 lb.-ft. of torque, it tips the scale at an enormous 4,514-pounds. Dodge says that this model can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7-seconds and turn the quarter-mile in 11.3-seconds @ 128 mph.

Manufactured by BMW, the 2020 Toyota Supra is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine. While the Supra is only rated at 335hp, it also weighs in at just 3,397-pounds. That’s over 1,200-pounds less than the Challenger Hellcat Redeye. The Gen VI Supra can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8-seconds and get through the quarter-mile in 12.3-seconds @ 113 mph. This car has a modified exhaust system.

On the agenda for this evening are a pair of roll racing hits. The first begins at 40 mph and the second starts at 50 mph. You don’t want to miss this one. It’s as close as they come.
