American Power Challenge: Hellcat vs. P85D

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

American cars have been getting faster and more efficient than ever before, and no two models better embody both traits than the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Tesla Model S P85D. But even though they both are unlike anything the world has seen before, they couldn’t be more different from each other.

The P85D is a completely electric car capable of the same 0-60 mph time as the McLaren F1. The Hellcat is a 707 hp muscle car and the most powerful sedan ever, pulling all of that power from a gasoline-powered, supercharged 6.2-liter hemi.
