Default 2015 Charger HellCat 700hp/11.0 ET!

Holy crap.. Dodge just released it's 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat to the public.

http://www.autonews.com/article/2014...15-charger-srt


bone stock 11.0@120+ mph!

I believe the prices start at a measly $60k!!!

I don't plan on getting one but damn that's an amazing sedan.. WOW!




I can't wait for it to get some drag radials and run some 10's in that bad boy!

In the Charger or the Challenger??

Having owned a few Charger's already, I think for me I would have to get a Challenger this time around and then park it all winter lol.. $60k investment that only gets driven like four months out of the year! What the heck, eh?

ummm..... damn! Go Dodge!

Honestly, for me, I'd rather swap in a forged 392 into mine and then put a blower on it. The AWD is too valuable to give up! Hellcat would amazing for the summer but will leave me neck deep and stranded in the winter with our surprise blizzards out of nowhere lol

Looks really sharp though! I can't wait for it to start popping up at the tracks to lay down some solid numbers!

Auto transmission only, don't need a stick to slow ya down in it. Well, I know what new car I'm buying next. Though I'll wait for the 2nd year, let them bump the power a little bit. Would be quite a bit slower than my current Charger, but holy hell it'd be nice to get a Hellcat and keep it stock(ish) lol.

Ditto.. my current Charger (same chassis as the Hellcat) is super roomy and feels very comfortable in every way!

Yes sir.. got the new 8 speeds as well!
One of the biggest caveats of the older NAG1 5 speed auto was that the programming had to be modified extensively before it got any performance out of it, but then you had a jerky, aggressive shifting trans. Great for the track but can get annoying day to day

My car used to clunk, thud and jerk even when the trans shifted on it's own cruising around, my girl hated it so I had to lower the settings in Drive and left maxed out in autostick lol

Considering it does so at 4450+ lbs. is also quite a feat in itself! lol I can imagine them at the board meeting.." instead of cutting weight, let's just up the hp to.. saaaaaaayy.. 700hp?? sound good to everyone? Great! Lets get to it!"

Nothing like a stock car running great times! And warranty too!

8 speed is in all the Chargers. But beefed up for the HellCat I believe, don't quote me on that

No stick for the Charger, only for the Challengers. I love how the valet key lowers the power to only 500hp lol.. valet key should just keep the bypass valve open as to not build boost!

The Car is sick, but did you guys read the article about when K&N put it on the dyno? 650rwhp, but the 'hottest car' they've ever had on their dyno... period. After owning a 03' Cobra with the heatsoak and heat from that car... I don't know if I am sold yet.

Curious how many blow up from heating the motor up before they have to figure out what to do about it...

Well see how things go.. 650whp will tend to heat up a lot of shiet real quick.

I bet there will be some sort of aftermarket meth injection kits to help cool things down.

Talking about heatsoak, my 09 RT Charger with a Magnacharger at 6 psi also got hot pretty quick. I didn't like that at all. It took the consistency and through it out the window. Anything from 12.1 to 12.9 depending on how many times in a row I ran it.

That's the thing.. did anyone here watch the temp gauge on that car on the dyno vid? I mean, impressive dyno run - but, holy hell - it was nearly overheating right on the dyno!

Granted, I haven't had my Shelby on the dyno - and my Terminator was a measly 100rwhp behind the Hellcat, but while it got hot pretty quick - it didn't boil the motor.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

I'm missing something..which dyno video are you talking about?

K&N did a dyno video...@ about the 1:10 mark is the in car shot with the temp gauge


Temperature definitely started climbing but I wonder if that's typical for all 700+hp cars on the dyno?

Damn.. reports online say that the HellCat Charger's are capable of as low as 10.5's on a sticky tire...
