Admittedly, we are living through the golden age of automobilia. Power can be had in plethora of choices, and a favorite of enthusiasts is undoubtedly the resurgence of the front engine, rear drive vehicle. Here, we have a prime example of why it’s a good time to be an automotive enthusiast. SRT boss Ralph Gilles slapped his go-pro to the side of a 2015 Challenger Hellcat, and chased a Cadillac CTS-V Wagon wearing a pair of slicks. Living the dream.
The Hellcat is more of a dragster than a track machine, but those 707 ponies of supercharged fury close in on the CTS-V’s 556 hp supercharged V8. Gilles explained the game of (Hell) cat and mouse, saying:
“Experimenting with my GoPro3… attempting to capture the HellCat’s incredible baritone fury…then a CTSV on Slicks got into my crosshairs! Was a fun couple of laps chasing him down. The CTSV driver overcooked a few corners (admittedly) as he was driving in his mirrors as the Cat closed in!” You can check out the action in the video below, and see Cadillac’s late-model muscle wagon hold its own while still being down 151 hp.
