This is how much you'll pay for the fastest muscle car in the world
Ever since FCA brought us the first Dodge Challenger Hellcat, huge power figures in the Challenger, Charger, and even Jeep's Grand Cherokee Trackhawk have become the norm. Yet, we keep getting more and more of it, and the latest offering is the Challenger SRT Super Stock, a true drag racer for the road. While there are rumors that the next generation of this elite model could go hybrid, the model we've just been treated too still makes power the old-school way, with a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI producing a whopping 807 horsepower. This makes it capable of a 0-60 mph sprint time of just 3.25 seconds with a quarter-mile time of 10.5. And all of that ability costs less than 80 grand.
The Super Stock package, with its 3.09 gear ratio, lightweight Brembo brakes, Bilstein adaptive suspension, lightweight 18-inch wheels, and Nitto NT05R drag radials, costs just $3,000, bringing the entire car's MSRP to $79,995.
807 raging horses are enough reason to justify the price on their own, but with the entire package bringing you the quickest-accelerating and fastest muscle car in the world, it seems that Dodge is still committed to providing affordable performance for the masses.
A big part of the car's blistering pace is down to the tires, as FCA's head of passenger cars, Tim Kuniskis, says, "There are a million jokes about bright colors, loud exhausts and racing stripes that make your car faster, but there is one sure thing - your car is only as fast as your tires."
As impressive as past special releases like the Redeye have been, Dodge isn't resting on its laurels and is instead refining the same recipe. The end result is that you have a car that requires no brake or suspension changes for you to fit those sticky drag tires, meaning that you can literally drive your car to the track, get your ten-second quarter-mile time slip, and head home.
Dealer orders will open later in the month with production at Dodge's Brampton, Ontario assembly plant starting in the fall and deliveries following shortly after. If you're interested, best get your order in ASAP. Cars like this aren't on showroom floors for every long.
