Dodge Challenger Hellcat Drag Races Supercharged E92 BMW M3 in Blown V8 Battle


We’re dealing with a bit of a contrast here. On the one hand, the Mopar machine goes up against another coupe with a supercharged V8, but we can’t call the race anything but odd, since we’re dealing with an E92 BMW M3 Coupe that has been gifted with a blower kit.

We’ll start by mentioning the Hellcat is completely stock, so we can move on to discussing the Bavarian beast now. The M3 has been touched by ESS Tuning, with its V8 throwing natural aspiration out the window, in favor of a VT2-625 supercharger kit.

Now, the name of the blower package indicates the output at the crank, but when talking rear-wheel numbers, this Bimmer delivers 570 rwhp. At first, it might seem like the 707-pony Hellcat has the advantage here, but we mustn’t forget the weight difference between the two.
