Matt Farah Drives the Challenger SRT Hellcat in Pouring Rain

Muscle Car / 29 Comments

RWD, a six-speed manual, and 707-hp will make you go sideways on a wet track.

Driving a 707 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat in the pouring rain sounds like a lot of fun. On the other hand, if you don't know how to handle the car properly, you could be in for a rather unpleasant experience. As we all know, the new $60,000 Challenger SRT Hellcat is just bonkers awesome. It's got more power than a Dodge SRT Viper, Porsche 911 Turbo, and a Corvette ZR1. And like the Viper and ZR1, the Challenger Hellcat is also RWD.

That may not exactly be the best combination for extremely wet pavement. Add a six-speed manual gearbox to the mix and you're looking at one risky, but rewarding, drive. And now /Drive's Matt Farah gets behind the wheel in anything but sunny Portland, Oregon.
