    A performance comparison between the Lamborghini Urus and the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye

    These certainly are two very different vehicles at two very different price points. They do have some things in common though. What are those things? Being powerful, fat, and nose heavy while carrying torque monster boosted V8's under the hood.

    How heavy? The Challenger Hellcat Redeye comes in at 4505 pounds. The Lamborghini Urus ups the girth to 4931 pounds but at least gives you all wheel drive for the weight penalty.

    That is the key to the straightline performance. The Urus gets off the line quicker thanks to traction while the Challenger Hellcat Redeye is faster. A quicker elapsed time at 11.3 seconds for the Urus through the 1/4 mile which is a half second on the Challenger Hellcat Redeye. The Dodge has six miles per hour of trap sped on the Urus though.

    From a stop, Urus. From a roll, Hellcat Redye.

    On the roadcourse the Urus crushes the Hellcat Redeye which is amusing. As you saw in MotorTrend's best driver's car comparison at Laguna Seca, the Urus comes out on top by 1.8 seconds.

    There is no denying the value of the Hellcat Redeye and its tuning potential. With 57% of its weight up front and rear wheel drive just do not expect to hook up off the line or carve canyons.

    It is a hell of a muscle car though and that is exactly what it was designed to be.

    Nice article, but I have to ask, what about a pulley swap/flash redeye vs a flashed urus.

    I know Audi likes to sandbag the $#@! out of their motors, so it's probably got another 80WHP in it, and >120 torques
    I wonder how close to maxed out the redeye blower is from the factory.

    So for under in $10k in parts/flash tune, where are you at with these monsters.

    Some Urus results:

    I don't think I posted any Redeye pulley/tune numbers.

    The Redeye has plenty of power left in the supercharger. It’s the same one as the demon, an I’ve seen videos of demons picking up another 120+who with a pulley/tune/cat delete.

    Yeah, it's basically a Demon motor: https://www.boostaddict.com/content....-a-Demon-Light

    The above details are also wrong as the Redeye redline is 6500 rpm not 5800.
