When the wraps were finally taken off the insane 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, it was confirmed that the model produced over 600 hp. Prior to its launch, Dodge also hinted that the car could produce more power than the 640 hp of the Dodge Viper. Now it has been confirmed that the Challenger SRT Hellcat produces an absolutely insane 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque!
That makes the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat the most powerful, road-legal factory production car ever easily eclipsing the 662 hp of the supercharged 2013 Ford Mustang GT500!
To help limit power of the new SRT Hellcat in not-ideal situations, it comes standard with a black key fob which limits power to 500 hp while the red key fob unlocks the full potential of 707 screaming horsepower! This power comes courtesy of a 6.2-litre HEMI V8 supercharged engine which we now know is the most powerful engine the Chrysler Group has ever produced.
Design changes include a new front fascia and all-new vertical-split grille. It gets a larger, power-bulge aluminium hood with a dedicated “cold-air” intake much like the original Viper coupe. The hood comes standard in body color and is available in a Satin Black finish. The quad projector headlamps are new too as is the larger front splitter and supercharger fender badges and notably, one of the headlights also serves as an air intake. The rear gets a split tail-lamp design and new rear fascia. The diffuser is a new design, as is the taller rear spoiler.
