Dodge Challenger Scat Pack Drag Races Mustang GT, Model S, And More

The Dodge Challenger RT Scat Pack isn’t the nastiest model in the muscle car lineup, but it still offers owners a powerful 6.4-liter V8 with 485 horsepower (362 kilowatts). This video catches two examples very similar to the dragster track against a variety of performance vehicles.

First, the Challenger Scat Pack lines up against a Ford Mustang GT. Its 5.0-liter V8 offers comparable power of 460 hp (343 kW). The Ford has a better start, but the Dodge quickly makes the difference. The Mustang claimed victory by covering the quarter-mile in 12.03 seconds, and the Challenger was slightly behind covering the distance in 12.51 seconds.

Then the same Challenger meets a Charger SRT Hellcat, and it is not too difficult to read the tea leaves on which we will win. With 707 hp (527 kW), the sedan moves away from the line and covers the quarter-mile in 10.7 seconds.

Another Challenger Scat Pack then arrives on the line. It has blue tape behind the rear wheels and has no number on the driver’s window. The badge on the front fender seems to identify the car as having the 1320 package which includes an adaptive damping suspension with SRT adjustment with drag mode, line lock, brake brake, torque reserve and 41 spline half shafts for intensive use. However, this is a Tesla Model S. Dodge estimates that the 1320 pack allows a Challenger to cover the quarter mile as quickly as 11.7 seconds. It doesn’t get as close.

Finally, the Challenger with the green ribbon returns to race with a Mercedes-AMG GLA 45. The big V8 in the Dodge has no problem beating Mercedes’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder.
