Just got done reading this in the michigan news.. here in michigan the state police caught a guy doing 180mph on I-75 in monroe (south of detroit, going towards ohio). All it said was that it was a 2016 Dodge.. I'm thinking.. ok, what dodge doesn't have a top speed limiter? And if there was a computer flash that removed the limiter, I'm thinking only a dodge challenger or hellcat? demon? does anyone know what dodge would do this speed?

And maybe I'm getting old.. lol.. I like speed, but wow.. maybe not 180mph worth at 1145 at night..

here's a link to the story..

I wonder what the speed rating of the tires on that vehicle were?


Boy will I be happy when ALL vehicles on public roads are autonomous.

If it was a kitty, I expect the tires were sufficient.

My old E39 M5 was capable of ~190Mph (north of 302Km/h) with the limiter removed. IIRC, the top speed of the non-Hellcat Charger SRT should be close, IIRC, my 2014 was 180Mph? A [censored] Kitty (mew mew!) would easily do it.

LOL, maybe it was one of those 1000 hp Hellcats modified by John Hennessey............varoooooooooooooooooooooooooooommmm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A few years ago a handful of us BITOG members were invited down to Texas for the "Pennzoil Experience" and besides a wonderful visit to the Pennzoil laboratories in Houston, we also visited Johh Hennessey at his shop and got to ride with him on his test track in a modified Camaro. I got up to about 150mph in my ride and the steering wheel was just a tad twitchy! YouTuber ChrisFix was with us also. Lots of cases of Pennzoil Ultra sitting in his shop!

My 5th gen Viper had a claimed top speed of 206 mph. It's significantly faster with 400rwhp more than stock, and some altered gearing.

I know they've been getting a little frisky on I-75 & I-71 here, for about a month the OSHP would just sit in the medians & watch them go by, but they've been nailing them the last couple days. 180 is insane, one pothole & it's all over, junk splattered for a couple miles when something breaks & the inevitable rollover happens...

2016 Challenger according to the video clip. Ticketed for going "more than 25 over the speed limit." I wonder if there's any extra consideration for going 110 over the limit?

I've seen 175 mph listed as top speed for Charger SRT. 182 mph for Challenger SRT.

Dodge claims a Hellcat tops out at 199, and the 392 can hit 182.

Fun fact, Charger hellcats can hit 204 because they’re more aerodynamic.

Around a week ago the O.P.P nabbed a hellcat , clocked him at 271kph which on the part of the 417 highway he was traveling is limited to 110kph. He is now walking.
