Latest rumor here.

When the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was announced, the folks at Fiat-Chrysler merely said it would have more than 600 horsepower. Turns out they weren't kidding. It's going to have about 700 horsepower, a source tells Jalopnik.


Seven. Hundred. Freaking. Horsepower.
I'm excited but I'm also deeply, deeply terrified.
A source familiar with the company says the vehicle will produce over 700 horsepower, probably 702 horsepower, and that Chrysler is planning to announce the accomplishment on Monday, July 7, or 7/7. A spokesperson for Chrysler declined to comment.
This will make the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 Hellcat the most powerful American production car ever built, besting both the Shelby GT500, the Corvette Z06 and Dodge's own Viper. I guess we'll find out more next week.
God Bless America. God Bless Hellcat.

Holy Mother of Pearl!!! If rumors are true this would be just what the diehard MOPAR fans have been waiting for.............although they might have to wait a bit longer when the MSRP is announced..........I would love for this to be true!!!

Just do it John!! LOL

Very cool. Just waiting to see the price tag now. Hope they make a core model.
I think a lot of people are gonna be gritting their teeth when the pricing comes out. If they made a core that would really be tempting even for me.

According to Allpar the weight is up about 200lbs. Shouldn't be a problem with around 600 ponies at the wheels.

Gas mileage?????? Really????? That would be my last question. As a matter of fact, it wouldn't even be a question for me.

My next questions would be.

Torque numbers

1/4 mile time

Cost

How can I mod it

Oh and gas mileage will be stated in GPM not MPG. If you were a dead dinosaur would you want your remains to sound like a prius or the Hellcat!?
