Chrysler may limit production of 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat to 1,200 units

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 19, 2014

Few days ago we announced that the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will be priced from $59,995 (excluding the $995 destination charge), which meant that the new coupe will be the cheapest +700 hp car in America. Still, do not expect to see too many models on the street as Chrysler may limit the production of the Challenger SRT Hellcat to as much as 1,200 units.

When asked about this, Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis didn’t confirm it and said that the company doesn’t know what the market demand is. Chrysler said that it will determine in the next several wheels which lucky dealers will sell the Challenger SRT Hellcat.

There are around 2,400 Dodge dealers in the United States and if the production will be limited, this means that less than 50 percent of the dealers will get at least one unit.

Each vehicle will be equipped with the 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 engine that produces 707 hp and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque, bolted to the TorqueFlite 8HP90 ultra-high performance 8-speed transmission.

This means that customers will get the fastest muscle car ever with an NHRA-certified 10.8 second quarter mile time at 126 mph (202.7 km/h).

Regarding the design, we find the “Slingshot” forged-aluminum wheels with Matte Black or Brass Monkey/dark bronze finish, a large front splitter, “Supercharged” fender badges, black side sills, a new rear spoiler with raised SRT logo as well as an unique power-bulge aluminum hood that can be finished in body color or Satin Black.
