The 707 HP Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat: The World's Most Powerful Sedan
The mad scientists at SRT shocked the world this summer by bringing us the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the most muscular muscle car ever, which packs a stonking 707 horsepower supercharged Hemi V8. Now, in the ultimate proof that you can have your cake and eat it too, it comes in four door form.There are specs listed.
The eagerly-awaited Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is being unveiled right now at a special Chrysler event at the Vinsetta Garage on Woodward Avenue. And like its sibling, it also has a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.
- 0-60 MPH: 3.7 seconds. That's motorcycle territory, people. FAST motorcycle territory. You will SMOKE Corvettes and Mustangs in this car.
- Top speed: 204 MPH. Yes. You read that correctly. An American SEDAN that can top 200 MPH. Carroll Shelby's infamous Cobra was originally designed so that there would actually be an American car capable of exceeding the double hundred mark.
- Quarter mile: 11 seconds. Holy flying bucket of s**t but that's amazing, folks. Most heavily modified street cars are SMOKIN' fast if they can do a sub-13 quarter mile.
- Eight - yes, eight - speed automatic transmission. No manual listed, but I'm guessing with SEVEN HUNDRED HORSEPOWER it ain't gonna matter.
Not bad for a grocery-getter, eh?
Man, I thought they were nuts when they stuffed the Hemi in the Dodge Magnum, but the Hellcat makes that seem tame by comparison. Now, the Charger Hellcat has an MSRP of $65K, so this is highly unlikely to make its way into the G. garage, but I can dream, right?
$65K, though, is far less money than a 7-series Beemer, or an AMG Mercedes, and this will absolutely stuff them off the line. That's gotta be humbling for the boys in Stuttgart, to have Lee Iacocca's old company - the one Daimler kicked to the curb - produce something that can stomp a mudhole in their cars' exhaust and drive it dry...
Now, shoehorn that motor into a Fiat 500 and you've REALLY got something...
That is all.
