2015 Dodge Charger HellCat


Dodge just revealed the new 707hp Hellcat Dodge Charger will hit the streets in 2015. …taking the kids to school may never be the same.

The announcement was made at Vinsetta Garage on Woodward Avenue, hallowed ground for Mopar muscle cars. Rumor has it the new new Hellcat 6.2L Hemi will push the Charger to a top speed of more than 200 mph! Making the Hellcat Charger the ultimate 4-door super sedan–one that will embarrass a few European cars that often cost 4 times as much.

According to the fan website Allpar.com, at Wednesday’s unveiling of the car, Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis said Tim Kuniskis said, “this is a car that has no business case… that no customer has asked us to build… but sometimes you need to disregard the data…. to build a car that defines itself.”

Powered by the 707 horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged engine, this monster can cover a quarter mile in 11 seconds flat and hit a top speed of 204 mph – laying claim to the titles of quickest and fastest sedan in the world. Unlike the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, with which it shares the engine, the Charger isn’t available with a manual transmission, but it does have launch control, and it’s .2 seconds quicker than the coupe on its stock Pirelli P Zero tires.

If you’re worried about handing the key over to your kid, or a parking valet, or anyone who is not you, don’t be, because it comes with two: a red one that unlocks the full fury of the car, and a black one that restricts it to about 500 hp — ok, maybe you should just go ahead and park it yourself.

Pricing has not been announced, but the Hellcat-equipped Challenger costs $60,990 and the Charger goes on sale in the first quarter of 2015, when it may make the just-unveiled Dodge Charger Pursuit police car obsolete.

Performance specs:
Top Speed: 204 mph
Quarter-mile: 11.0 seconds
