This is an awesome time be part of the muscle car aficionados club, since Detroit's Big Three have come up with machines that are at least as enticing as the ones that kickstarted the genre back in the day. Heck, you don't even have to check out all three carmaker to understand this, as, for instance, it's enough to zoom in on Dodge's lineup.
The brothers' brand has come up with an uber-rich muscle car family, as, for instance, the number of Challenger versions is quickly getting close to those of Porsche 911 derivatives. Then there's the Charger, whose range is also rich. But what happens when the two are thrown at each other?

Well, we've brought along a piece of footage that offers an answer to this question, with the clip showcasing a battle between a Charger SRT Hellcat and a Challenger SRT Demon.

"But the Charger Hellcat is already slowed than its Challenger equivalent, so it's no match for the Demon!" we hear you saying. And while that is correct, there's something we need to mention about the Mopar animals we have here.

We'll start with the Charger, which has received an aftermarket massage - the blown 6.2-liter V8 of the thing has been gifted with respectable mods.

As for the Demon, this comes in factory trim, even though the Dodge realm is no stranger to modded Demons. In fact, these beasts now come with four-digit outputs, as we've shown you on multiple occasions.

The slabs of SRT engaged in a 1/8-mile race, with the drivers even sharing the numbers after the battle.

Those of you who happen to be in a hurry should know that the said battle awaits them at the 2:34 point of the clip. Nevertheless, the other parts of the video are also worthy of your time, being packed with drag racing action.
