Worlds most powerful muscle car: SRT Hellcat

The new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat gives out a massive 707bhp power output, making it Dodge’s most powerful Challenger ever. At its heart sits a 6.2 litre supercharged HEMI Hellcat engine which produces a peak torque of 880Nm. The Challenger’s new engine is the first factory supercharged HEMI, and Dodge’s and SRT’s first application of V8 supercharger technology. The new Hellcat engine comes as standard with two key fobs, red and black. The red key fob unlocks the full 707bhp and 880Nm potential of the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. The standard black key fob limits the power generation to a reduced output of 500bhp.

The new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has been redesigned and totally re-engineered to be the most true-to-form muscle coupe on the market with performance-enhancing technologies inside and out. This includes the new TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission and an all-new interior inspired by the classic 1971 Challenger. Both brands, Dodge and SRT, now offer the most complete line-up true muscle cars in the American market.

The line-up now has the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SXT with its standard powerful and fuel-efficient Pentastar V-6 engine combined with the TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission that delivers 300bhp and an estimated 10.6 kmpl; the 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T with the high-torque 5.7 litre HEMI now paired with the TorqueFlite 8-speed or 6-speed manual transmission; and the all-new 6.4 litre HEMI Challenger Scat Pack that delivers 485bhp and 644Nm of peak torque with the TorqueFlite 8-speed or 6-speed manual.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger and Challenger SRTs are built at the Brampton, Ontario, Assembly Plant. There are no such plans of Dodge being sold here to Indian folk, but fingers crossed we will wait till Dodge considers India as a potential market for thoroughbred muscle cars from the United States. Dodge also celebrated its 100th anniversary on 1st July 2014 as America’s mainstream performance brand.
