Dodge Challenger Hellcat Tries To Send A Message To Buick Grand National, But…
Let’s have a closer at this epic drag race that took place in Mexico. On the right side we have a Dodge Challenger Hellcat (FATT CAT from Texas). On the other side is a 1987 Buick Regal Grand National. Both vehicles are stock, so this is going to be an interesting race. Let’s get some performance numbers before we pick up our favourite car between these monsters. The Buick is a second generation Regal that was manufactured between 1978 and 1987. The Grand National was unveiled to the public back in 1982 and the name came from the NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National Series.

Buick won the Manufacturers Cup in 1982 and 1981 and that’s the how they transformed their success into something real.
Usually under the hood we could find a naturally aspirated 4.1-liter V6 engine, but in this one we have something special – a turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine generating 245 horsepower and 360 lb.ft. of torque. 13.2 seconds is the time needed to run a quarter mile and reaching a top speed of 104 MPH. Next to the Buick we have a stock Dodge Challenger Hellcat. 6.2-liter HEMI engine with a 707 horsepower power output and 650 lb.ft. of torque. The engine is supercharged making this car run a quarter mile in 10.7 seconds. It could reach a top speed of over 200MPH.
From 0 to 186 MPH the Hellcat clocks exactly 38 seconds. The Dodge beats the Corvette Z06’time from 0-186 MPH which is around 40 seconds.
