A couple of weeks ago, we showed you a video of a Dodge Charger SRT HELLCAT running the world-famous Nürburgring Nordschleife. This week, we have another video from Paul Lobre and his YouTube channel, Bavarian MOPAR Works of his Charger SRT HELLCAT running on the Autobahn.
The big Charger SRT HELLCAT with it’s 707 horsepower 6.2-liter SRT HELLCAT V8 engine looks right at home at cruising speeds of 130 mph to 145 mph. Even if it means passing a German police unit at 145 mph… hell it’s the Autobahn, right?
German autobahns have no federally mandated speed limit for some classes of vehicles. However, limits are posted (and enforced) in areas that are urbanized, substandard, accident-prone, or under construction. On speed-unrestricted stretches, an advisory speed limit (Richtgeschwindigkeit) of 130 kph (81 mph) applies. While going faster is not illegal as such in the absence of a speed limit, it can cause an increased liability in the case of an accident; courts have ruled that an “ideal driver” who is exempt from absolute liability for “inevitable” tort under the law would not exceed Richtgeschwindigkeit.
Be sure to check out the Bavarian MOPAR Works for more Charger SRT HELLCAT shenanigans on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
