2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat - 13 Miles, Supercharged 6.2/707 HP

Once upon a time, any 200 MPH car powered by a blown Hemi engine had a single, rudimentary aluminum seat, a roll cage and a parachute, and was designed only to go in a straight line. Not so today, thanks to the Street and Racing Technology team at Chrysler-Fiat, who doubled down on their third generation Dodge Challenger to produce the Hellcat, a supercharged 707 HP bomb that the company claims is the fastest, most powerful muscle car ever.

The Hellcat backs up that claim with some astonishing numbers: zero to 60 in 3.5 launch-controlled seconds, a quarter mile time of 11.2 on factory tires and a top speed of 200 MPH.

  1. Gone are the days when guys actually wanted to drive fast cars, today they just want to ride in them while the computer does all the work. This one, Mustang, Camaro.....factor in the price and the horse power isn't quite so impressive. For 70 grand they damn well better be fast.

    1. Good point and you can't get say the biggest motor in a cheap body anymore. So, $70K 3.5 0 - 60 when I could have bought a 289/427 Cobra in '65 for $7/8K which went 4.2 and 4.0 0 to 60.
