For those who want to get their hands on the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat we have good news as the muscle car is on its way to dealerships. According to the manufacturer, over 4,500 orders for the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat were received in just five days after orders opened in September.
As you may already know, the Challenger SRT Hellcat starts at $59,995 in the United States, including the $2,100 gas-guzzler tax ($,1700 gas-guzzler tax on models equipped with an automatic transmission), but excluding the $995 destination charge.
The vehicles will be easily distinguished thanks to the 6.2-liter HEMI V8 Hellcat engine that produces 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. The engine makes the Challenger SRT Hellcat the fastest mucle car ever with a Hot Rod Association-certified ¼-mile elapsed time of 11.2 seconds at 125 miles per hour (mph) with stock Pirelli P275/40ZR20 P Zero tires.
