    There’s something about quarter-mile times that car tuners seem to have a fixation with. Whether it’s trying to post world record times or just seeing how fast their tuned-up creations can go the quarter-mile run has seemingly become a badge of honor of sorts - post the fastest time and wait for somebody else to beat it.
    The folks over at SpeedFactory seemed to have that record in mind when they completely overhauled a 2006 Dodge Charger and put a Gen III Hemi stroker motor boosted by a Vortech supercharger engine underneath the hood, tuning up an already fast 900-hp sedan into a mind-numbing 1,000 horsepower.
    The result, as you can imagine, is a car that could very well challenge the world record for fastest quarter mile time, and that’s exactly what the souped up Charger did, clocking a time of 9.453 seconds at 145.38 mph.
    We’re still going to need confirmation on whether the car broke the world record for fastest quarter-mile time, but either way, a 9.453-second time is ridiculously fast.
    Check out the video and see how SpeedFactory’s tuned-up Charger fared in its quest for quarter-mile immortality.
