This is a 707-horsepower 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. It’s fast, it’s good for burnouts and it looks like it’s been oxidized over many years. Someone chose for the car to look like that, commissioning a wrap that likely cost a few grand to make it happen. Dodge doesn’t sell patina as a factory color.
I’m going to file this under the “you call it a viral video, cops call it evidence” folder. I understand this is going to come as a shocker for many of you out there, but the guy who posted a video of himself doing 198 mph on a North Carolina highway got himself arrested. The charges are not looking good for him.
Richard Rawlings, the television show host, energy drink impresario, and restaurateur, has tried his hand at drag racing and failed in gloriously impressive fashion. While racing against NHRA Top Fuel ace Leah Pritchett, Mr. Rawlings skidded into the left side k-rail of the makeshift track on Woodward Avenue in…
The U.S. Department of Justice wasn’t thrilled that a Georgia sheriff bought a 707-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat with federal funds, demanding he reimburse the nearly $70,000 he spent. The DOJ got its money back, but local outlets report that the sheriff’s department just used county tax dollars on it instead.
Dodge Charger and Challenger air dams were apparently getting scratched during shipment between the assembly plant and the dealership, so Dodge installed some yellow plastic “shipping covers,” which are supposed to be taken off at the dealer. Except now people are keeping them in place because they like the look and…
Somehow, the maniacs at Mopar have found a way to get you even more speed for less cash. The new 797 horsepower, 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye will have a starting price of $69,650, and the regular Hellcat gains an extra 10 ponies with a $5,000 price cut. Not bad all around.
There are a lot of clever jokes to make with the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat—cat jokes, hell jokes, jokes about how things might break off into your hand at any time. But this Hellcat looks like it traveled to hell and back, and is now ready to claim some poor soul who thinks it’s a feasible project car.
I don’t have a problem, fundamentally, with the Prius. It does what it sets out to do, I guess. But it’s far from perfect. It can be improved. You can, for example, stuff a 800-horsepower supercharged V8 out of a Dodge Challenger Hellcat in there, making it fast enough to pretty much rip your face off.
You notice you don’t see too many nuns driving Dodge Hellcats? Why might that be? Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Hellcat might be your chance to be un-nunly. That is, if its price and lien aren’t cause for alarm.
Much like its more popular, overshadowing sibling in the Dodge performance lineup, the 2019 Dodge Charger Hellcat will get at least one new giant air intake for its giant, powerful engine. Yes, that sentence says “Charger” Hellcat. It’s a thing. That two-door Challenger you like isn’t the only Dodge with some power.
Check the clock. It may be time for Ram to finally give us the Hellcat-powered truck we don’t need or deserve, but that we want.
There’s good news for everyone who’s been prowling Copart for wrecked Dodge Hellcat Chargers and Challengers: Fiat Chrysler’s Mopar division just announced a new 6.2-liter supercharged crate engine kit called “Hellcrate.” Because every car deserves 707 horsepower.
Natural disasters happen and they can absolutely ruin cars. Trees could fall on them. They could get swept away in floods. Forest fires could reduce them to ash. This tale, however, is one of hail, a Hellcat and a salvage title.
When I walk around New York City and watch people carelessly fling garbage into her streets, a part of me dies a little bit. But then I am cheered by the fact that Fiat Chrysler is still putting big and dumb motors in cars that have no business with motors that big or dumb. It’s stuck Hellcat engines into Charger,…
