Dodge supercharges the Charger.
Dodge has finally unleashed the 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat, describing it as the “quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world.” The Charger Hellcat features the same 6.2-liter supercharged V8 as its Challenger brethren, developing 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. Mated to an eight-speed automatic, the potent sedan can clock an eleven-second quarter-mile, sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds, hit a top speed of 204 mph, and go from standstill to 100 mph and back to a complete stop in less than 13 seconds.
Hellcat hallmarks include an aggressive front fascia, a unique blacked-out grille flanked by LED-infused headlights, a power-bulge aluminum hood with cold air intake and heat extractors, a new rear bumper, trunk-mounted spoiler, twin exhaust, 20-inch alloys housing Brembo calipers, and adaptive damping three-mode suspension. Inside, a flat-bottomed steering wheel is joined by leather-wrapped heated/ventilated sport seats and Alcantara upholstery, while tech toys include a digital instrument cluster, an 18-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system and 8.4-inch display. Set to enter production next year, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat should come priced close to the Challenger Hellcat's $60k price tag.
