Where else can you find 700+ horsepower? Why it’s a Hellcat!Oct 4th, 2017
The Challenger Hellcat is a major salvo in the Horsepower Wars, offering muscle-car metal and seriously awesome engines, and we have a very rare 2016 in manual with only 1100 K on it. To make you drool a bit, according to Car and Driver, the aptly named Hellcat has a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 good for 707 hp and 650 lb-ft, with a six-speed manual, doing 0–60 in 3.9 seconds.
Although standing-start acceleration runs in the Hellcat are breathtaking, the real eye-widening happens once it’s rolling. Top-gear acceleration from 30 to 50 mph and from 50 to 70 mph happens in 1.8 and 2.3 seconds. Passing other traffic poses no worries beyond avoiding the attention of the local constabulary. Booting the gas pedal at anything less than triple-digit speeds goes something like this: The big coupe squats back, the transmission quickly kicks down to a lower gear, and the car rockets forward, its rear tires slipping and fighting to maintain contact with the road. Don’t get behind in your steering. Come in and talk to us about this seriously amazing vehicle.
