Why It Matters
In the grand of scheme of things, something like this will only endear the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat to its fans and customers. It could even turn out to be an ingenious marketing ploy that generates some sales for the American muscle car .
Give credit to Dodge for thinking out of the box to promote the Challenger SRT Hellcat. It probably didn’t have to, given the state of the muscle car itself, but any kind of good marketing and the publicity that follows doesn’t hurt either.
The 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat SRT is the most powerful, factory-built muscle car ever created. That, on its own, should be enough reason to give this car its proper respect. There’s really no arguing that. Not when the Hellcat is capable of producing a staggering 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque from its 6.2-liter, HEMI, V-8 engine.
With that much power, it’s no surprise that the Hellcat is also the fastest muscle car in the world, capable of finishing a quarter-mile in just 11.2 seconds, faster than the Ferrari Enzo and the Nissan GT-R Track Pack.
It’s also a lot cheaper than the two aforementioned exotics. The 2015 Challenger Hellcat SRT will retail from $60,990, including destination and gas-guzzler tax.

“When you name an engine ‘Hellcat,’ it had better have the performance to back it up and a sound that wakes up the devil. The Hellcat’s signature sound is the unholy union of supercharger whine and 5.5 inches of unrestricted exhaust,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT Brands, Chrysler Group LLC. “Dodge/SRT fans can now make heads turn and people stop in their tracks, every time their phones ring.”
