The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is built for speed. One number is tossed around anytime someone brings up the new sedan, and that is the horsepower. 707 horsepower is no laughing matter. That number has gotten many drivers itching to test the new Charger SRT Hellcat is see if the real deal lives up to the hype. Doubters beware, according to Jalopnik, the Charger Hellcat is as powerful as Dodge is saying.
The article quotes that TorqueNews was able to be part of a presentation given by Chrysler which went over various details on the Charger SRT Hellcat’s performance. In the presentation, Dodge laid out that the Charger Hellcat is able to go from zero to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. If that was not impressive enough by itself, it can do a quarter-mile in 10.7 seconds.
It isn’t really surprising. The Hellcat series of both the Charger and Challenger are built to appease the speed demons of the road. The engineers working on them seem hell-bent on making sure that their nefarious creations are provided with the titles of “fastest ever.” I think was is so fascinating is that I never thought that a sedan would be capable of such raw power, but it looks like SRT and Dodge live to challenge what any type of car can do.
