15 Aston Martin DB11 beats Dodge Challenger Hellcat in a Grand Tour duel - here are the lap times

Cover for Aston Martin DB11 beats Dodge Challenger Hellcat in a Grand Tour duel - here are the lap times

The Grand Tour is back in United Kingdom and back on form producing road car laptimes.

This time in the beautiful, fast flowing Mugello circuit in Italy.

The new Aston managed to beat the 700+ horsepower Hellcat by 0.44 seconds - 2:18.35 for the "cultured" Aston Martin DB11 and 2:18.79 for the "wild and un-cultured" Dodge Challenger SRT-8 Hellcat.

Both cars were driven relatively cautiously and recorded laptimes approximately 4 seconds below optimal pace.

The SRT Demon should defeat everyone.

You could get a motorcycle for 25k to easily beat either lmao. If a supercar costing 1 million could do the track in 2:00 and a Prius in 3:00 then the Aston is a bargain at 1/5th the price and 82% the difference in speed lol. But seriously the U.S. Germany and Japan are uniquely poised to build really quick 50-100k cars with their vast engineering knowledge and mass production. Astons,Lotuses and Morgans have become faster over the years but face an uphill battle. Which is why Astons new German Freunds are so wunderbar.

You can get that hellcat for 50k? An ACR laps faster than hyper cars costing 8x as much though it's no match for them in a drag race. Does this mean that the P1, LaFerrari etc. are overpriced? Nope. You are guaranteed at least a very fast car if you pay a lot but not an extremely fast one. A fellow pointed out on youtube that a 2016 Camaro SS is almost exactly the same in handling,lapping and acceleration as a DBS. Yes but it's a decade older and the Camaro rapes a 175 k New MC Stradale which is what Aston competes with not Camaros. Plus the Aston is more gracious letting a Brera keep up. The SS would never let 2.0t Mk VI keep up with it lol. Another fellow said a Vantage V12s was slower than the SS and his ZO6 was a greater performance value. There is no guarantee of price performance as a ZL1 beats an F12 on most tracks and is only a little slower in a straight line.

Why do people think money equals speed? It doesn't.

To be fair to Aston - it was actually Rolls Royce Dawn that had references to "Casino Lifestyle" in it's owners manual. But they are both pretty wan*r-worthy if you ask me :D

Not at all, Just sounds stupid.

And Aston Martin is James Bond, Monaco and "Casino Lifestyle" (wan*er) :D :D :D

Well the Challenger is forever associated with Jesse and Bo Duke and running moonshine, so I don't think that statement is unfair.

BR2, I said Aston was "cultured" and Dodge "uncultured" as a half joke, not to offend anyone. If you watched the episode you would know what I (and Jeremy & James) meant by that :D

I don't think you're likely to see either on a track day.

The difference between James bond and Ted Nugent. Go look it up in a dictionary. Does that offend you somehow?
