Cool Charger Hellcat beats Ford GT at Ehra-Lessien!

Motor Trend just did some vmax testing in Germany. The Hellcat recorded its top speed for the first time in 26 months! Based on Weather Underground's details (74 degrees Fahrenheit) for the test day in Braunschweig, DE, I'm going to assume they tested their cars at at around 10am, and the wind speed was over 7 mph. But the Hellcat reached a very high top speed of 218.1 mph, an approximately-13.55-mph improvement from the factory's achievement at the Transportation Research Center in East Liberty, Ohio.

The 218.1-mph Hellcat is faster than the 217.2-mph Ford GT and all of the three Ferraris (the 216.1-mph LaFerrari, the 215.5-mph F12 TDF, and the 212.3-mph 488 GTB) in the test. Not to mention it even reached a whopping 230.4 mph while using the same "with the wind" technique, a 23.5-mph improvement from the original Hellcat top speed run. The Lamborghini Aventador SV ran a normal 223.4 mph, beating the Hellcat, but it could barely reach faster than that with the wind (reaching 224.0 mph as the fastest it recorded). The Hellcat in the test cost $76,200 (assuming US price) while the Aventador SV cost $505,000. From a 0-200-mph sprint, the Hellcat records 37.1 seconds, while the new Ford GT records 38.1 seconds.

Sadly, there is no link to the direct magazine test. However, Motor Trend did promote their Imgur profile for twenty-two hours on their website and I clicked on it...I'm not making a fake excuse for why Motor Trend didn't make this official on their website. Here's a link to the test anyway:
