As the world’s most powerful production sedan, the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat epitomises the word ‘beast’. Powered by a potent 6.2-litre supercharged V8 delivering 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, one would reasonably assume that the Charger SRT Hellcat consumes fuel like a whale swallows plankton.
However, Chrysler has revealed that on the highway, the Charger SRT Hellcat returns 22 mpg as well as 13 mpg in the city resulting in 16 mpg combined-cycle returns.
Alongside figures of 707 hp and 650 lb-ft, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat will sprint to 96 km/h (60 mpg) in a mere 3.7 seconds as well as a top speed of 328 km/h (204 mpg). It will also go from a standstill to 160 km/h back to zero in under 13 seconds. The Charger SRT Hellcat includes two key fobs with the red one unlocking all 707 horsepower!
Just like the Challenger, this engine is mated to a TorqueFlite heavy duty eight-speed automatic transmission capable of performing 160 millisecond shifts with rev-matching. Braking is provided by the largest brakes ever offered by the Chrysler Group and the same as those from the Challenger with 15.4 Brembo two-piece rotors at the front with six-piston calipers.
