Now, when picking and choosing a good opponent to be a benchmark for performance, the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is generally a car that pops into the field of play. With a supercharged V8 that we all know cranks out 707 horses, the car seems to be one of those production machines that is at the top of the game of drag racing.
Many times, however, when we see the satanic kitty on the drag strip, drivers find that they are a difficult beast to launch. All of that power going through a street tire isn’t really something that will prove to be realistic if you want to have good times at the track.
This time, we check out a Tesla Model S P100D that heads out to the track to go head-to-head with such a Challenger Hellcat, a car that is sitting on a set of drag radials and ready to rock!
Check out the video below as both the electric car and the supercharged combustion animal go head-to-head with all that they’ve got to try it taste victory at Palm Beach International Raceway.
