As automobile enthusiasts are getting more and more accustomed to seeing great-looking and powerful cars, it must be increasingly difficult for the main automakers of our world to come up with new ideas in order to keep them hooked. However, there’s always one trick that always manages to get the job done, and it consists in creating a special edition of an already acclaimed vehicle and equipping it with a ridiculously powerful engine. The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is a phenomenal vehicle, to say the least, and we’re not just saying that because of its gorgeous red paint job and stunning black rims.
Indeed, the new Hellcat’s hype is based on its outstanding performance capabilities, which comes as no surprise since it was outfitted with Dodge’s most powerful V8 engine in existence. This 6.2-liter Hemi V8 is able to dish out more than 600 horsepower, all kept in check by an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic or 6-speed manual transmission according to the owner’s preference.
Brembo brakes for incredible stopping power are also part of the package, as are the forged-aluminum wheels and the high-quality rubber enveloping them. An interesting addition comes in the form of the 2 key fobs, which enable 2 different driving modes. As you might suspect, the Valet mode limits the Hellcat’s potential to a 4,000 rpm redline, while the transmission is programmed to shift early and lock the first gear out. The other mode provides unlimited power, which is great if you want to burn all that rubber out in a hurry. As far as pricing and availability are concerned, we don’t have any specific details at the moment but we do know that the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is expected to go into production during the year’s third quarter.
