In a car with 707hp and a claimed quarter-mile time of 11.2 seconds (on stock tires), a 0-60 mph should be a piece of cake, right? Nathan attempts several 0-60 runs in the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat to see how well the car can do. He even attempts it with the factory-included launch control program.
How fast is it? Well, you’ll have to watch the video to see. Launching a car with that much horsepower and torque, even with the assistance of computer wizardry, can still be extremely difficult.
Starting at $60,000 for one of the most powerful cars on the planet is quite a bargain, regardless of how you look at it. The Challenger SRT Hellcat has upped the muscle car ante and we eagerly await the response Ford has with the 2015 Mustang. Stay tuned for even more videos of our time with the 2015 Challengers as we go head-to-head with the competition from Ford and Chevrolet.
