Since the introduction of the 707 horsepower Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Charger Hellcat models last year, Dodge has made significant gains in the War on Tires. Unfortunately, many tires remain un-obliterated despite their best efforts. But wars are marathons, not sprints, and so Dodge is set to “substantially…
Two of the top American performance cars right now couldn’t be more different: one is the all-electric, all-insane Tesla Model S P85D, and the other is the old-school ferocious Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. When the two faced off in a drag race in January, the Hellcat’s defeat was infamous. A few days ago, the…
Ever given thought to what you’d do if you were the last person on earth? Like, if everyone else up and disappeared one day? If (or maybe when) that happens to me, I’m going to do what Rhys Millen did in that Pennzoil ad: Just drift the absolute crap out of a Challenger Hellcat on empty streets at night.
Let's be clear about one thing first: this video isn't real. At least, part of it isn't real. Drifting ace Rhys Millen did all the Challenger Hellcat driving for real, he just didn't do it on a platform suspended by helicopters hundreds of feet above the streets of Cape Town. That would be crazy.
A lot of people have been calling Dodge's Hellcat twins 'overpowered.' What does that mean?
I told you driving a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat wasn't easy! People act like all you have to do is mash the throttle for instant tire-melting American glory, and then they wonder how they end up in a ditch. Imagine that: a 707 horsepower, rear-drive car that's kind of tricky.
I’m not gonna lie to you: the first time I drove the 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, it kind of scared the shit out of me just a little bit.
We have been racing cars against planes for well over a century now. Here's why we keep doing it, as explained by a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and an F-16.
Of course video of the first Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat rolling off the assembly line is set to Mötley Crüe. Because of course it is.
Good morning. Today is Thursday, which is not yet Saturday or even Friday. As a consolation, here's a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat doing a massive burnout.
SRT boss Ralph Gilles put his GoPro on a Challenger Hellcat and went after a Cadillac CTS-V running on slicks at Grattan Raceway. Best day at work? Best day at work.
It's pretty well established that the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is an insanely good deal for your money, if you pay MSRP. But it you want Hellcat VIN number 0001, you're going to pay more than the $59,995 sticker. A lot more. More than ten times more. All the more.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat configurator is finally online. Get in there, option out your Hellcat, and show us what yours would look like. FOR AMERICA.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat isn't just a 707 horsepower salute to American awesomeness and a rolling middle finger to common sense. It's also a really good deal for its price. Like, insanely good.
"I want to be in that meeting when someone suggested, 'Why don't we make it with 707 horsepower?'" Jay Leno says of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Then again, the most powerful muscle car you can buy is kind of a no-brainer.
Is there anything more badass on the market today than America's most powerful muscle car ever? Yes, there is. The VIN0001 Hellcat going for auction at Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas 2014 sporting the Dodge Viper's Stryker Red Paint. That's special.
Some days are good, some days are bad, and some days you hang out with a MOPAR-obsessed WWE champ in a monsoon. But there was one thing left to do. Here ya go.
So I guess it's time to talk about this engine. Although simply calling it an engine is like calling Goldberg a wrestler. I'd be doing both a massive disservice, because Goldberg is a renaissance man and the Hellcat's V8 is the fifth most powerful production engine in the world.
I really can't overstate the torrential downpour engulfing Portland International Raceway right now. Even Noah would grab a hammer and head to the lumber yard. Goldberg rode shotgun with a hotshoe for the first outing, because he's smart. I'm not. Which is why I'm sliding sideways through the first corner at a…
Yes, yes. Seven-hundred-seven horsepower, 650 lb-ft of torque. It's all very impressive. But just as impressive is how that power gets to the rear wheels. Goldberg and I drove the manual version out to the track, and the six-speed felt oddly familiar. There's a reason for that.
