SpeedFactory 426 Charger race car has set a new world record


On January 23rd a SpeedFactory 426 Charger race car has set a new world record in the LX community by running a 9.45s @ 145 mph in the quarter mile.

The 426Charger is powered by a GEN III 426 HEMI stroker motor that delivers a total of 900 hp. A curb weight of 3,750 pounds was achieved by removing the interior.

With this time, SpeedFactory bested all previous quarter mile times set by actual production LX/LC-platform cars- modern Dodge Chargers, Challengers, Magnums and Chrysler 300C.

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.
