SpeedFactory Dodge Charger – schneller ist keiner!

Speedfactory ist bekannt für ihre leistungsstarken Muscle Cars – bereits aus dem Speedfactory Challenger SRT8 holten die Jungs 600PS an purer Leistung heraus. Nun haben sie einen neuen Weltrekord gebrochen und den stärksten Dodge Charger, auf Basis der Chrysler LX/LC Plattform geschaffen. Nachdem das komplette Innenleben des 2006 Charger entfernt wurde, hat Speedfactory einen neuen GEN III 426 Hemi verbaut, welcher mit Hilfe eines Vortech Kompressors auf eine Leistung von 900PS getrimmt wurde. Dank neuer Aufhängung und einer neuen Antriebswelle, kommt Speedfactory jetzt auf eine Endleistung von über 1000PS, bei einem Gewicht von nur mehr 1600 kg. Das Resultat sind 9.453 Sekunden auf der Viertelmeile bei 145.38 mph (233.96 km/h). Ein Video vom Lauf gibts natürlich nach dem Klick!


SpeedFactory 426 Charger Again Sets World Record Quarter Mile Time for Chrysler LX/LC Platform Vehicles

Atlanta, GA, January 27, 2010 – On January 23, 2010, SpeedFactory’s 426 Charger completed the quarter mile in 9.453 seconds with a trap speed of 145.38 mph at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Valdosta, Georgia. According to records kept by the LXForums.com moderators, SpeedFactory bested all previous quarter mile times set by actual production LX/LC-platform cars-modern Dodge Chargers, Challengers, Magnums and Chrysler 300Cs. SpeedFactory driver Eddie Rosa piloted the Charger.

SpeedFactory, in collaboration with partners Landmark Dodge Chrysler Jeep, Vortech Superchargers and Paramount Performance, built this car from a 2006 Dodge Charger platform utilizing a unique combination of heavily modified stock components. The SpeedFactory R&D (Research and Development) Charger is a test platform for high horsepower technology destined to power SpeedFactory’s production vehicles.

A GEN III 426 HEMI stroker motor is boosted by a Vortech centrifugal-style V-7 YSi-trim supercharger and is controlled through factory electronics, producing over 900 HP. The car retains modified factory components: transmission, IRS differential with 1000HP half shafts, suspension and shocks. A curb weight of 3,750 pounds was achieved by removing the interior.

“We are all very proud of this achievement, which showcases our continued commitment to the development of our brand and ultimately carries over into our customers’ vehicles,” said Mark Brucks, general manager, SpeedFactory. “With the introduction of the Drag Pack Challengers, we knew that records would be broken, and to achieve this with a modified stock vehicle that still utilizes the factory components makes this even more exciting to us and our partners. We believe there is more that can be done to produce even faster times.”

“The Vortech V-7 YSi-trim supercharger supports up to 1200HP with 78 percent efficiency,” said Gil Cormaci, director, sales and marketing for Vortech Engineering. “We are very pleased to be associated with SpeedFactory and Landmark Dodge Chrysler Jeep. The application of our YSi-trim compressor to this HEMI Charger was done with the highest expertise, resulting in this impressive time and speed.”
