As the most powerful production muscle car ever, the Dodge Challenger SRT® Hellcat is loud, angry, and a beast to be reckoned with. Powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 that delivers 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, it can best be described as monstrous. To put it in perspective, that is 7 more horsepower than a $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador. With a starting price of $64,195, owning a Challenger Hellcat doesn’t require the financial portfolio of a sheik.
TFLcar recently added a brand-new Challenger Hellcat to its test fleet and will be using it to benchmark against other high performance cars this year. Tune in every other Saturday to see how the Challenger Hellcat measures up to whatever we have keys for. In episode number one of “Hellcat vs”, Roman takes delivery of a new 2016 Hellcat and performs some baseline testing. First is a 0-60 mph test, followed by a drive on a 100 mile test loop to determine its real world fuel economy.
Watch the video to see if the Challenger Hellcat lives up to manufacturer claims.
