    2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 Runs an 8.88 Quarter Mile - a New World Record

    2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 Runs an 8.88 Quarter Mile - a New World Record-dan_plotkin_charger-jpg

    Dan Plotkin recently piloted his 2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 down the quarter mile in just 8.88 seconds, setting a new world record for the quickest quarter mile by a car running a nitrous-fed Gen3 Hemi – while also being one of the quickest modern Mopar machines in the world.

    We talk about a great many record-setting Dodge Hellcat cars but today, we shift gears a bit, looking at the quickest modern Mopar performance car powered by a Gen3 Hemi without a supercharger or turbochargers. This car has nitrous and a fully built engine (and drivetrain), but there is no other forced induction – making this the quickest nitrous-only Gen3 Hemi car in the world.

    Dan Plotkin’s 8-Second Dodge Charger SRT8

    While Dan Plotkin’s 2007 Dodge Charger SRT does not have a supercharger or turbocharger, it does have an extensive list of modifications that all worked together to put this car into the 8-second range.

    Rather than the 6.1L Hemi (372 cubic inches), Plotkin’s Charger is powered by a 440 cubic inch, high compression Hemi built by MPR. That engine is fitted with Thitek ported cylinder heads, Gearhead Fabrications fender-exit headers, a ported factory intake manifold, a 90mm throttle body. A standalone fuel system and a Nitrous Outlet direct port system with 450hp jets.
