2015 Dodge Challenger SRT

Dodge’s upcoming monster of a muscle car will be more powerful than some of the most exclusive supercars in the world.

Official ratings for the SRT Challenger and Charger put the car at 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, making it considerably more powerful than its exotic sibling: the SRT Viper. The SRT halo car makes 640 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque with a massive 8.4-liter V10, but it’s hard to care now that Chrysler will sell you a blown V8 that makes it look downright wimpy.

In fact, the SAE ratings mean that the steroidal challenger is not only more powerful than the Shelby GT500, but also the ultra-exclusive Lamborghini Aventador along with a long list of other high-priced exotics.

Dealers will begin taking delivery of the new Challenger later this year with two key fobs: a black version that “limits” output to 500 hp and a red version that unleashes the car’s full power.

  • nick

    maybe more powerful than the Aventador but the challenger weighs almost twice as much and with the Aventador’s all wheel drive, there is no comparison.

  • Jeff T

    MERICA!

  • V-Alley

    I might actually trade in my Viper for this. I’m serious.

  • Kid Zid

    Who cares if it makes more power… the Viper is still WAY more awesome.

  • norengag

    How much is an Aventador?

  • Glen Parks

    Buy it… throw away the black fob! Period!

  • Finhater

    Settle down girls, it’s still just a POS Dodge. At least you would be able to get to the repair shop quicker!

  • Ions_revenge

    With the ridiculous price tag that comes with this car you could build 6 or 7 cars with more hp….My 2500 dollar pos has more hp

    How do you get twice as much? The Lambo weighs 3472 lbs. The Dodge weighs 4160 lbs. Fuzzy math says that is a difference of 688 lbs. If the Dodge was double the Lambo, it would weigh 6944 lbs. So how do you figure?

    The sound is worth the price
