Dodge has just released another teaser video. This time, the car maker has hinted at the quarter mile time and the top speed of the Last Call Dodge Challenger. The numbers are revealed via a video that needs one to do some calculations.
What does the teaser video reveal?
This is the fourth video released by Dodge in regards to the Last Call Dodge Challenger. This time, the title of the video is very clear. Scream @ 215 mph could mean only one thing – the car’s top speed. However, that is the easy bit. The video itself contains numbers like 105, 3.02, 2.98 and 1,582. There is also a leprechaun that is screaming into an anemometer.
Deciphering the numbers in the teaser video
Let’s start with 105. This could imply a 105 octane rating. While the regular pump has 85-87 octane rating, 105 is pretty common in the world of racing. This could hint that the Dodge Challenger could work with higher octane fuel as well. Higher grade fuel equals more power.
The 3.02 and 2.98 sure pretty cryptic on their own. However, multiple them and the result is 8.9996. In car speak, this number could only suggest one thing – a quarter mile time. A sub 9-second time would be great on the car, but is not an impossible number. The most powerful Dodge Challenger could definitely do it.
Lastly, we have 1,582. This could mean horsepower. If that is the case, then the Dodge Challenger could be one of the most powerful cars out there. However, according to Dodge, this number is the answer to blowing in the wind. Now, blowing in the wind refers to air, and for a car, this could mean airflow to the engine. The Dodge Challenger could have a maximum airflow of 1,582 CFM (cubic feet per min). In reference, the 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon has a 1,150 CFM. Hence, the figure is not too far off. More CFM means higher power.
Last Call Dodge Challenger reveal date
In the teaser, we can see that 105 @ 8.9996 = 1,532. Does this mean that the Dodge Challenger will do a quarter mile in under 9 seconds when using 105 octane fuel? As of now we can only guess, but the final details would be revealed by March 20, 2023 in Las Vegas. This will also be the last Hemi-powered Dodge Challenger.
