Why would you ever break the world speed record on ice with a car!? Really, why? It seems that there is not much logic behind it. Yet, despite the logic, Dodge went out all the way to Sweden, set up a straight race track (if we may say so) and released their own insane Dodge Challenger Hellcat. The mighty car with a whole lot of torque was stock. The Swedes only rigged its wheels with studded tires to make it possible for the driver to control the car at high speeds. Now, if you think that steering-wheel movement could largely jeopardize car stability at speeds of more than 130 mph, you are wrong. Well, at least when the car is traveling on ice. Please take a look at driver fighting the steering wheel of 707hp Challenger at some serious speeds.
All in all, achieving a top speed of 171 mph and running for a whole mile at an average of 162 mph in a task only a few can handle. The Challenger Hellcat is not only impressive on the road, but on the track as well. Now, we can add on a snowy track too.
Although this muscle car is officially the fastest car in the world on ice on a 0.61-mile track, the real world record was set up back in February 2011 when the Bentley Continental Supersport Convertible, with a rally legend Juha Kankkunen behind its wheel, hit amazing 205,48 mph. Of course, that car needed a bit more track to hit the speed. It could not do it on a 1-kilometer long track – no way.
