Dodge just pulled the drapes off of the its second car to receive the 707-hp supercharged Hellcat V8 in Detroit.
Today the company confirmed and revealed its new Hellcat-powered Charger sedan at Vinsetta Garage before its public debut during the Woodward Dream Cruise this weekend. The new super sedan is supposed to be capable of a top speed of 204 MPH, which is five MPH faster than the Hellcat-powered Challenger. Like that car, the range-topping Charger also gets a modified front fascia to help the engine gulp air.

It also gets bigger brakes, wheels and tires along with the same two-key system Dodge uses for Challenger Hellcat to restrict vehicle performance or offer the engine’s complete brute force. Unlike the Challenger, Dodge will sell its new super sedan exclusively with its new eight-speed automatic transmission. Dodge also said today that the Charger is capable of an NHRA certified 11-second quarter mile sprint as well as a 0-100 MPH sprint in “under 13 seconds.”
Dodge still hasn’t said what it plans to charge for the Hellcat-powered model, but Dodge and SRT boss Tim Kuniskis told Automotive News that the company doesn’t plan to limit production.
