In the coming weeks and months, more and more videos of the absolutely insane 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will begin to emerge. The following clip is one of the very first and captures an onboard ride at the Portland International Raceway.
This clip gives us our first listen to the brutal supercharged 6.2-litre V8 engine at full throttle and as you’d imagine, it sounds absolutely spectacular. The deep burble of the V8 engine is contrasted perfectly by the high-pitched whistle of the supercharger at high revs!
Under the hood, the 6.2-litre supercharged V8 engine pumps out a truly spectacular 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque! 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.
