Video: 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Idle and Drive Away
I’m not expecting anyone to agree with me, but I think the all-new Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is way cooler than the 2015 Ford Mustang. Sure, the Challenger’s design is awfully dated when compared to the Mustang, and that platform was introduced eons ago, but I don’t care. All I care about is that huge, nasty HEMI V-8 and the supercharger sitting atop it. And between you and me, Ford somehow managed to dilute the Mustang with the new design.
Anyway, there’s more to the Challenger SRT Hellcat than that 600-plus-horsepower mill. It has a cool name, roars like all hell breaks loose with ease and sports a cool amount of exclusive features. What’s more, it can be had in Dodge’s brand-new high-impact colors, including the awesome B5 Blue and Sublime Green. All of a sudden it feels like 1971 again. And by the way, did you see the massive integral charge coolers Dodge is dropping in the Hellcat’s engine bay?
If the aforementioned facts, our in-depth review, and the batch of videos released by the automaker aren’t compelling enough for you, then you must have a look at this new Hellcat footage we just stumbled upon. There’s nothing official about it, just a Sublime Green-painted example exiting a driveway. And grunt, a lot of grunt, a pair of rear tires leaving marks on the asphalt, and further proof there’s no actual replacement for displacement!
