Throughout its history, Dodge has consistently produced high-performance, fast cars. These are just a few of the fastest ones that the automaker has ever produced.
- 1996 Dodge Viper RT/10
The 1996 Dodge Viper RT/10 is one of the fastest Dodge cars of all time. Under the hood sat a massive 8-liter V-10 engine that produced a heart-pounding 420 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. Drivers could take the vehicle from zero to 60 in 4.1 seconds. It was one of the most powerful vehicles to come out of Detroit in the ’90s, and it came as both a coupe and convertible.
- 1968 Dodge Dart LO23
The 1968 Dodge Dart was created by Dodge and Hurst as the ultimate drag car. The already light Dodge Dart was made even lighter when its sheet metal was replaced with a fiberglass hood and fenders and the doors were dipped in acid.
Under the hood of this ultra-light Dart was a 426 cubic inch Hemi V-8 engine. The engine was rated to give the car 425 horsepower, but it actually put out more than 550 horsepower. It could go from zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds. Dodge built only 80 of these vehicles and never officially advertised them in its catalogs, making them a true collector’s item.
- 2017 Charger SRT 392
The 2017 Charger SRT 392 came out with force and joined the ranks as one of Dodge’s fastest vehicles. The SRT 392 has a 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This engine puts out a whopping 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque, and it can go from zero to 60 in 4.3 seconds. All of this power allows the SRT 392 to reach a top speed of 175 miles per hour.
- Challenger Hellcat
The Challenger Hellcat is rated the fastest muscle car of all time. It has a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that pumps out 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. It has a top speed of 199 miles per hour and can go from zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds. The Challenger Hellcat has only been in production for two model years, so we expect things to only get better from here.
- Charger Hellcat
The Challenger Hellcat may have speed and muscle, but it offers all of that with a sleeker body style, making it the fastest sedan in the world. To enjoy this speed, opt for the 6.2-liter engine with the TorqueFlight eight-speed automatic transmission.
This engine offers drivers an outstanding 707 horsepower and a top speed of 204 miles per hour. It goes from zero to 60 in a rapid 3.4 seconds. With all this power, you can still get up to 22 miles per gallon highway, some of the best fuel efficiency in its class.
