These are all very different cars that have very interesting specs. Some cars are faster to sixty than other but slower in the quarter mile. Some are faster to sixty and in the quarter mile but have lower top speeds. That’s the interesting thing about this test. Because it happens in three different heats, certain cars that might have done well in the second heat don’t get the chance because they lost in the first. So it actually turns out to be quite the interesting matchup

We know that Dodge has proclaimed the Charger Hellcat to be the world’s fastest sedan but, well lets face it, they are kinda biased. Allpar alerted us to an independent test by Justin Bell and The World’s Fastest Car Show that sets out to confirm or deny said claim. We won’t ruin the ending but in a telltale credit at the end, the producers thank SRT for supplying the camera car. Video after the jump!
