The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has been put to the test on dyno by the Motor Trend team.
This is the first Challenger SRT Hellcat to hit the rollers and the results are quite surprising. When the car was revealed, it was announced it has 707 bhp (527 kW) and 880 Nm (650 lb-ft) of torque.
According to the test, performed at K&N's dyno, the vehicle puts down 635 PS (467 kW) and 800 Nm (591 lb-ft) of torque at the rear wheels. Assuming a 12-percent drivetrain loss, this translates to around 722 PS (531 kW) at the crank. The real torque is 910 Nm (672-lb-ft).
MT says this is the fastest car that K&N had ever tested on its dyno. The speedometer stopped at 325 km/h (202 mph), while the car kept accelerating to 362 km/h (225 mph).
