Drag Race: Chevy Camaro ZL1 vs Dodge Challenger Hellcat

Both of these vehicles represent the very best in American Muscle performance and both possess supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engines. While the Dodge Hellcat packs a bigger punch at 707 hp, the Challenger also has a curb weight of 4,448 lbs. compare this to the nimble Camaro that weighs in at 3,883 lbs and still delivers a very respectable 650 hp. The other interesting factor to take into consideration when trying to pick the winner is the six-speed manual transmission of the Camaro vs the eight-speed automatic transmission of the Hellcat.
