The car was being driven by 22-year-old William Jefferson racing with a sports bike.
The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is an amazing machine, creating 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque from its supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8. It ought to abandon saying that restriction ought to be practiced when driving it outside the controlled limits of a race track. As per ABC 11 news, 22-year-old William Jefferson indicated next to no limitation this July when he rather practiced his correct foot until the point that he had his Hellcat completing 198 mph on US-1 in Wake County, North Carolina. His rash driving was recorded on an in-car camera and in addition by his companions as he hustled along the parkway intently taken after by a motorbike.
Beside the best end run which was only 1mph short of the makers possess assert, Jefferson additionally taped himself doing more than 100 mph in a 40-mph zone and in addition doing doughnuts in his car. These tricks may have been carried out under the front of murkiness, however it is never a smart thought to be this rash on open streets.
