R6 vs Hellcat

Well brother in law getting a hellcat and it had me thinking can a hellcat beat a 2014 R6? They are really similar in quarter mile and 0-60 times. Obviously hellcat has higher top speed. So at what speed would the hellcat pass the R6? I tried looking for this answer couldn't find anywhere.

2014 R6

2017 hellcat 707hp, Automatic tranny

Re: R6 vs Hellcat

Found a site called zeroto60times and you can compare vehicles on 0-60 and 1/4 mile times. Cannot believe how close the 2 are!
These are the results: (site only had a 2013 R6, but close enough..)

R6: 0-60 in 3.7 sec
1/4 mi in 11.6 sec

Hellcat: 0-60 in 3.6 sec
1/4 mi in 11.7 sec

Since the Hellcat is an automatic, it's going to come down to whether he gets less wheelspin than you or not. Should be a great race!

Yeah it would be a battle of drivers not vehicles. The R6 would totally blow the doors off of it if you could get the power to the ground. I guarantee that 0-60 had traction problems. The Hellcats are pigs, but make up for it with plenty of power and probably not so big of a traction issue.

Yeah I know but it was relivent for this situation lol. I figured it was going to be a very close race but I just wanted other opinions. I hope to be upgrading to the new R1 late this year then it will be no question R1 will win haha

I can go from 0 to 107mph in 6.85 seconds... according to the local 1/8th mile dragstrip.
This is a stock bike and a 215lb rider. A lighter rider should be able to accelerate even quicker.
On my stock 2006 gsxr 1k at the same strip I can run a 6.1@118 on 1 wheel

So Im guessing hellcat would win everything after 150mph? Because my bike usually hits a wall at 150

um if you cant get away from a car in a straight acceleration contest... you have no business taking the race up to triple digits.
150 indicated... might be 135mph real speed. Also my bike pulls to the rev limiter in 6th pretty easy. 16/43 gearing.
