850 hp Charger Hellcat Vs 800 hp Mustang GT In A Drag Race – See Who Wins
Just by reading the title of this article, one is quick to judge that the Ford Mustang is going to show the Charger Hellcat some tire smoke by virtue of its incredible features. Theoretically, this is true. The Mustang is said to be faster than the Hellcat, especially because of the lighter weight. The driver of the Mustang was actually so confident before the beginning of the race that he made very bold statements of winning the fight.
However, this is not the case as shown between the two vehicles. The Hellcat embarrassed the Mustang by winning every single fight of the race. The Mustang owner must have learned a big lesson that day, especially if he is not able to back his words with actions.
Comparing the specifications of both cars, we see a few differences between the two cars that enable us to judge the winner of the event. The Charger Hellcat comes with 850 horsepower at the rear wheels while the Ford Mustang releases 800 horsepower at the rear wheels. The Dodge comes with an E85 setup while the Mustang features a Whipple blower.
The S550 Ford Mustang prides itself on being one of the best American speed cars, but after watching the video it is clear that the Charger Hellcat is better. This race just solidifies the fact that we should never judge a book by its cover.
