Something just seems a bit off.
The big stupid sticker on the side for starters... surprised it doesn't have sloth scratches too.

The wide body flares produce more drag. But my recollection was Dodge certified the WB Challenger at 196 or something like that. Maybe I was wrong. Don't really pay that much attention.

Checked it. the RE was certified to top out at 203 by Dodge. Still 1 mph less than the Charger HC (regular body). The WB Charger dropped to 196 or 194 because of the increased drag.

AND with your power, it would have pulled like a MF'er thru 6th, and 7th and even 8th, and you would have needed wings and flaps soon with enough road!

The 203mph is the regular body Redeye. The WB is slower 199mph I believe.

You beat me to it. Has to be a fair amount of turbulence around that unsightly vinyl decor.

Correct . The bushwacker fender flares add drag and scrub top speed .

The "off" comment by the OP...it looks like the video from the car is a video game to me, but I think it's legit. Did anyone else notice the parked space shuttle to the left? I googled that and it is "Inspiration", a mock shuttle, so this testing had to have been at the Kennedy Space Center.
 

BULL

Oh NO! Not that guy!

I clocked a 12.6 in the 1/4 with a top speed of 212. Traction issues *wink*! Sending this in to fake news.com
