2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

The upcoming SRT Challenger powered by Chrysler’s new 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 won’t be the most expensive muscle car on the market despite being the most powerful.

According to a leaked presentation slide leaked by AutoSpies, the car will start at $59,900, which makes it more expensive than the now out-of-production Shelby GT500 and the Camaro ZL1, but less expensive than the track-focused Camaro Z/28.KAwyFVdl

Dodge’s new tire melter will also run an NARA-certified 11.2-second quarter mile, although it isn’t clear if the company modified the car at all to make it handle well. Of the muscle cars the Detroit 3 are selling, the Challenger has historically been the least capable in cornering, but that doesn’t mean the same will be true of the newest SRT model. The base V8-powered Camaro and Mustang aren’t corner carvers either, but their more expensive variants are.

Then again, all of the Dodge promotional material so far is focused on two things: burnouts and being able to make it down a drag strip quickly. The material shown on the slide also seems like it discredits the previous assertion that the car will run a 10-second quarter mile made through a video Dodge released showing Gas Monkey Garage running the car down a strip.

    Well, I prefer the Camaro….but I didn’t realize the Camaro trailed in all those stats in the picture. That sucks :(

  • Felix James

    Now I’m getting one for sure!

  • Rickers

    I’d still rather have the Z/28. That thing would WHOOP the Hellcat around a track.

  • Kvally

    That is true. I wonder what time the Helicat could get on the Ring.

  • Rickers

    Probably like 9 minutes. LOL.

  • David Swieboda

    I’ll just take a supra or nsx and kill both on the track ;)

  • Kvally

    Z28 already beats the NSX and Supra ring times.

  • BBC

    who cares? you plan on shipping a hellcat over to germany to make some laps on the ‘ring. You guys fall for marketing…

  • Kvally

    You fail at discussion and car passion. We are just making conversation.

  • B-Series

    But will it beat the New NSX’s time? And the old NSX made like HALF the horsepower of the Z/28.

  • Kvally

    The new NSX? You mean the one that doesn’t exist yet? How would we know? As for the old…I would hope a car that costs $100k does well on the ring, even though it is bested by a Camaro for $25k less.

    News came out that only 1200 hellcats are going to be available for the 2015 model run. That’s ok with me since I won’t be buying until 2016 since I would be interested in checking out the next gen Camaro ZL1, Mustang GT500 and the Alfa Romeo 4C with a Ferrari engine choice. I see dealers adding $10-20k for the first ones and lets all LOL for the idiots that buy at that price. Remember those idiots buying the PT Cruiser, a $17k car for $5k over msrp. LOL for the suckers.

  • Slats

    I want one just to drive as my daily driver. Its nice to want!!!!! My 2012 R/T will have to do.
