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.

Engine is bolted to a six-speed manual transmission or to a segment-exclusive TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. Fitted with the automatic transmission, the Challenger SRT Hellcat returns a fuel economy of 22 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg when using the six-speed manual transmission.

"The introduction of the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has ignited the general market's interest in the muscle car segment," said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT brands. "The reaction from our customers and the general public has been beyond even our positive expectations, and we will work to build a Challenger Hellcat for every customer who wants one."

The fastest muscle car ever is also the most powerful muscle car ever, thanks to the Challenger SRT's HEMI Hellcat, which delivers an unprecedented 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. The 6.2-liter V-8 is also the first factory-built supercharged HEMI.

Equipped with Chrysler Group's segment-exclusive TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, the new Challenger SRT Hellcat has earned a highway fuel-economy rating of 22 miles per gallon (mpg) from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Not to be outdone, the Challenger SRT Hellcat earns an EPA highway rating of 21 mpg when equipped with the new-for-2015 six-speed manual transmission.

In addition to the awe-inspiring horsepower, the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has been redesigned and totally re-engineered to be the most true-to-form muscle coupe on the market with performance-enhancing technologies inside and out, including the new TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission or six-speed manual and an all-new interior inspired by the classic 1971 Challenger.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has a starting U.S. MSRP (Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price) of $59,995 (excluding $995 destination, includes $2,100 gas-guzzler tax; $1,700 gas-guzzler tax on models with the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic).
