As if one 707 horsepower car in the Dodge showroom wasn’t enough. Dodge announced this week they’re dropping their supercharged powerhouse into the four-door Charger.
Making its appearance at the Woodward Dream Cruise this weekend, the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat has an NHRA-certified quarter mile time of 11.0 seconds on street tires and a top speed of 204 miles per hour.
This makes the Charger SRT Hellcat the world’s fastest and most powerful sedan ever built so says Dodge. With the now well known supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI making 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, this will be hard to argue with for some time.
To make its appearance obvious, the Charger SRT Hellcat has heat extractors in the hood, unique front and rear fascias and eye-popping LED lighting at both the front and rear.
Unlike the Challenger SRT Hellcat which can be had with a manual or automatic gearbox, the Charger SRT Hellcat comes only with a heavy-duty eight-speed automatic which can snap off rev-matched shifts in as little as 160 milliseconds.
Brakes come courtesy of Brembo with 15.4” two-piece rotors and six-piston calipers. You can see them well through the unique 20” aluminum wheels. The Charger SRT Hellcat comes standard with an adaptive damping three-mode suspension.
Similar to the other Hellcat, you will get two key fobs – one black and one red. The red fob unlocks all 707 horsepower, the other keeps you restrained at closer to 500.
A special interior includes an SRT three-spoke, flat-bottom steering wheel, 7-inch reconfigurable digital gauge cluster, 8.4-inch touchscreen, Nappa leather and Alcantara suede seating and more premium trims throughout.
The first police department that adds one of these to their fleet gets an embroidered TestDriven.TV polo shirt!
