Hellcat First Drive

Hell Hath No Fury like a Muscle Car Scorned
by Mike Schlee

In 2005 Ford started a muscle car revival. Retro styling breathed new life into the Mustang and the pony car market as a whole. In 2008 Dodge re-entered the modern muscle car arena with the Challenger and Chevrolet followed shortly after with the 2010 Camaro.

Since then Ford and Chevrolet have been locked in a battle of one-upmanship releasing special editions like the Mustang Boss 302, Camaro ZL1, track ready Camaro Z/28 and monstrous 662 HP Shelby GT500 Mustang.

While this battle raged on, the Challenger was relegated to the sidelines, quickly becoming the forgotten middle child of the pony car world. Well, enough is enough and for 2015 Dodge is out for blood. As an appetizer, the Scat Pack returns and sees the 6.4-liter V8 and other goodies added to the Challenger R/T. But the car stealing all the headlines is the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat.

Hellooooo Hellcat

Blowing the lid off the horsepower wars, Dodge has shoved a ferocious 6.2-liter supercharged V8 under hood that makes an insane 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. That is more power than a Lamborghini Aventador and a lot more than Chryslerís halo car: the Viper.

To achieve such ridiculous power, Dodge started with the SRT 392 6.4-liter V8 and gave it a complete overhaul that saw 91 percent of the engineís components replaced. Along with the addition of a supercharger, twin intercoolers using a completely closed-loop cooling system were added. Even a special 0W-40 synthetic oil formula had to be created by Pennzoil to keep this monster well lubricated.

Challenger Hellcat pricing leaked
Jul 16, 2014 - 8:14 AM - by AutoGuide.com


The upcoming SRT Challenger powered by Chryslerís new 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 wonít be the most expensive muscle car on the market despite being the most powerful.

According to a leaked presentation slide leaked by AutoSpies, the car will start at $59,900, which makes it more expensive than the now out-of-production Shelby GT500 and the Camaro ZL1, but less expensive than the track-focused Camaro Z/28.

Dodgeís new tire melter will also run an NARA-certified 11.2-second quarter mile, although it isnít clear if the company modified the car at all to make it handle well. Of the muscle cars the Detroit 3 are selling, the Challenger has historically been the least capable in cornering, but that doesnít mean the same will be true of the newest SRT model. The base V8-powered Camaro and Mustang arenít corner carvers either, but their more expensive variants are.

Then again, all of the Dodge promotional material so far is focused on two things: burnouts and being able to make it down a drag strip quickly. The material shown on the slide also seems like it discredits the previous assertion that the car will run a 10-second quarter mile made through a video Dodge released showing Gas Monkey Garage running the car down a strip.

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Makes 707-HP!
Jul 01, 2014 - 2:07 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Dodgeís upcoming monster of a muscle car will be more powerful than some of the most exclusive supercars in the world.

Official ratings for the SRT Challenger and Charger put the car at 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, making it considerably more powerful than its exotic sibling: the SRT Viper. The SRT halo car makes 640 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque with a massive 8.4-liter V10, but itís hard to care now that Chrysler will sell you a blown V8 that makes it look downright wimpy.

In fact, the SAE ratings mean that the steroidal challenger is not only more powerful than the Shelby GT500, but also the ultra-exclusive Lamborghini Aventador along with a long list of other high-priced exotics.

Dealers will begin taking delivery of the new Challenger later this year with two key fobs: a black version that ďlimitsĒ output to 500 hp and a red version that unleashes the carís full power.
