Despite what you may think, the potent 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat isn’t actually being produced in the United States. Instead, it is being created at the firm’s Brampton plant in Canada and to celebrate the first customer examples rolling out, Dodge has released the following video of them hitting the road and heading straight to U.S. shores.
Featured in the video are literally hundreds of Challenger SRT Hellcats and witnessing so many examples of the world’s most powerful muscle car in one place really is something you have to see to believe!
Not too long ago, it emerged that well over 5000 orders for the Challenger SRT Hellcat have been placed and when you look at the spec-sheet, it isn’t hard to understand why. Powering the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 engine delivering an 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!
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 colour 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 also gets a split tail-lamp design and new rear fascia.
