After so many Hellcat vs. Z06 videos, we find it hard to believe any of these cars ever goes out on the highway without the rival appearing. But what happens when one of these supercharged ‘Vettes meets a pair of Hellcats?
We receive the answer to that question in the video below. The footage shows us a 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 driving down the highway together with a Challenger Hellcat, as well as a Charger Hellcat.
The Mopar duo agreed on sharing the tasks that arise in such a situation – the Challenger would pull the classic street race also involving the Z06, while the Charger would serve as the camera car.
Nevertheless, the guy riding shotgun in the four-door SRT machine knows how to take full advantage of the Dodge’s assets. For one thing, the man makes sure we all get splashed with that intoxicating supercharger whine that defines any Hellcat.
The two slabs of America that engage in racing even have nicknames. People on forum, or those who read license plates, call them Mr. Z06 and Fatt-Catt.
We won’t discuss the outcome of the race here, as we don’t want to throw spoilers at you. All we can tell you is that both drivers show plenty of determination.
As it happens in most of these cases, people stop street racing their cars for Internet attention after the second model year arrives. Nevertheless, that also brings more serious aftermarket kits, which means the illegal racing kicks off again and even takes the vehicles to higher speeds.
For instance, we’ll remind you Hellcats may have been taken past the 800 hp border so far, but the best is yet to come. One muscle-building case we’re looking forward to comes from Hennessey, which is currently testing both incarnations of the Hellcat.
