These two have more in common than you think.
If you want to compare the Dodge Challenger Hellcat to something, you would expect it to be against an American like the Chevy Camaro ZL1 or Ford Mustang GT350. Most people would not cross shop the Hellcat with a Mercedes-AMG, but the C63 AMG's base price is within $3,000 of the Hellcat's. Unfortunately, if you want the 503 horsepower C63 AMG S, you'll have to pony up over $72,000, making it about $10,000 more than a base Hellcat, and still down about 200 hp.
We all knew that the Hellcat would be cheaper, but is is really better? The Fast Lane Car puts both of these amazing models to the test to see if that enormous price and power difference is enough to make the Hellcat a winner.
The AMG can put its power down much better than the Hellcat. This is no surprise because it has less horsepower, and wider rear tires. However, the Hellcat does keep up with the German luxury coupe in a few key areas. You may not expect an American muscle car to have a nice interior, but the Hellcat does have an impressive infotainment system and some other great features. Which would you take in this comparison? We love both cars, but we would love to hear what you think in the comments.
