Three new stripe colors are now available for the 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

Still the quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world as powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 engine providing 707 hp of max output and 650 lb.-ft. of peak torque, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is entering the 2019 model year with a number of upgrades both in terms of aesthetics and performance. Now, Dodge//SRT is offering to make your Charger SRT Hellcat look more aggressive on the road with three new stripe options.

This stripe design covers the front and rear fascias of Charger SRT Hellcat as well as its roof and deck lid. The stripe design also is matched to the design of the signature NACA duct-hood vent, further highlighting its already aggressive yet still functional design.

Rezvani Tank X is a Hellcat V8 engine-powered utility in dark menacing suit

Rezvani’s extreme utility vehicle has just gotten more hardcore. The Rezvani Tank was a beast while the Rezvani Tank Military Edition is a monster. Now, the Tank has called on its dark side to become the new Rezvani Tank X.

Inspired by the military vehicle of the same name with similar characteristic, the Rezvani Tank evolves from the ready-for-war Military Edition into an X stealth fighter wrapped in dark suit. It basically looks like the new Rezvani Tank is the car of choice of Darth Vader. Of course, the dark-finished Rezvani Tank X is perfectly street-legal.

Headlining the capabilities of the Rezvani Tank X -- furthering its claim as the ultimate road-going and off-road extreme utility vehicle – is the core engine underneath its hood. Previously offered as an option on the Tank Military Edition, a 6.2-liter Supercharged V8 mill is installed in the engine bay of the Tank X. Derived from the Dodge Hellcat, this 6.2-liter Supercharged V8 mill delivers a whooping 707 hp (527) hp of max output and 710 lb.-ft. of peak torque. This makes the Tank X around 207 hp (155 kW) more powerful than the Tank Military Edition served by a standard 6.4-liter V8 engine (500 hp or 372 kW).

As an extreme utility vehicle, the Rezvani Tank already boasts of capabilities that allow it to become the ultimate road-going and off-road extreme utility vehicle. But Rezvani didn’t stop at the Tank, and instead explored more ways to level up its capabilities. The result is the new Rezvani Tank Military Edition.

Last Dodge Demon and Viper will be auctioned off on June 20

If you are a huge fan of the Dodge Viper and the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon but never had the chance to get your hands on any, there is going to be one last chance for you to get your hands on not one but both of them. This is because in June, Dodge will release the final examples of the Dodge Viper and the Dodge Challenger Demon at the Barrett Jackson auction in Uncasville, Connecticut.

The reason why I said that you could get your hands on both is because of the fact that both models will be auctioned as a pair, so you are out of luck if you could only afford one. When combined, the Viper and the Demon will have an output of $1,485 horsepower. In fact, Dodge calls the auction “The Ultimate Last Chance”, so get your check books out.

Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge/SRT, Chrysler, and Fiat - FCA North America, Steve Beahm, even stated that it is close to impossible for an avid collector to have both the Dodge Viper and the Dodge Challenger Demon in his garage because these models are just so difficult to get your hands on, considering that they sell out even before the automaker begins production of these.

Ever heard of a Dodge Durango Hellcat? Of course, no one has heard of a Durango Hellcat. This is because Dodge never developed or created such a model. In case you haven’t heard it too, there is a Durango powered by the same engine found in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, courtesy of a custom Mopar shop near Phoenix, Arizona.

Even with the arrival of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat remains a fiery proposition on the road. After all, it is powered by a monstrous engine – a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 mill – that could deliver 707 hp of max output and 650 lb.-ft. of peak torque. It is also the same engine that powers the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. Moreover, it is the same engine that serves as the core of the newly launched Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk mid-size SUV.

Regrettably, Dodge hasn’t decided to equip its own mid-size SUV with this engine from hell. The closest a customer could get for a high-performance version of the Dodge Durango is the one that has been tweaked by SRT. Created for the 2018 model year, the Dodge Durango SRT is tagged by the brand as the fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV in America. It is powered by a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine that delivers at most 475 hp of output and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. While this 6.4-liter V8 engine is already -- by all means – powerful, it pales in comparison with smaller displacement supercharged Hellcat mill.

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat as we know, is the Demon's less powerful sibling, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But have you ever imagined how it would look if you combine both the Hellcat and the Demon? Well, you don't have to imagine it anymore as the company has put some Demon into the Hellcat.

Yes, you're right. The Hellcat has been given tweaks all over to make it look like the offspring of both. It starts with the Demon's wider body kit that adds 3.5 inches (8.9 centimeters) to the Challenger's already broad flares. This new body kit allows them to add a set of 20-inch split spoke wheels wrapped in 305/35 Pirelli P-Zero tires under the fenders, and paired with Brembo brakes with 15.4-inch two-piece rotors and six-piston front calipers.

If you're interested to get the Hellcat widebody package, there’s no need to panic as this one is not as limited as the Demon. You can get your hands on one by the third quarter of this year with a starting price of $72,590, which already includes the $1,700 tax and $1,095 destination fee.

Ouch. From the mileage, we know that this newly delivered Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was driven only a few miles before it suffered a major crash. The 18 miles on the clock prove that it was almost brand new. From the pictures released online of the wrecked muscle car in B5 Blue body paint, it seems very unlikely that we’ll be seeing this beast on the road again. Even so, the powerful 707hp and 650lb-ft of torque 6.2-liter V8 supercharger may still get a second lease on life for anyone who’s interested to take its engine for a rescue.

Cleveland Power and Performance has apparently picked up this Hellcat out of the dumps and has been selling some of its parts piece by piece. The outlet is known for rebuilding and restoration while they also have their specialties when it comes to customizing cars.

The company has picked up a total of 20 wrecked Hellcats but this particular Dodge Challenger SRT has the lowest amount of mileage. It is also the third time in all these years that they have encountered a vehicle with only a few total miles on the clock. One is a 2006 Pontiac GTO with 11 miles and a 2012 Grand Cherokee with just 12 miles.

Imagine you are the new owner of a 707hp pure American muscle car - the temptation to test it will nag at you endlessly. You want to test the ultimate speed of your newly acquired vehicle and hearing it roar will probably send your adrenaline to new heights. Moreover, the urge to show off to your friends is undoubtedly unavoidable. All these might make you think that it’s justified to overspeed and test your limits.

But then again, take lessons from what happened to Christopher Garza, who upon driving nearly 160 miles per hour (258 kph) on the streets of Gary, Indiana was duly apprehended and went to another venue instead: the Lake County Jail.

Around 1:30 on a Friday Morning, Indiana State Trooper Alaa Hamed was tasked to monitor the roads at the side of the highway in the city of Gary, Indiana when he spotted a vehicle coming in hot with its speed intensifying as it came nearer to the Trooper, according to a press release by the Indiana State Police. The said State Trooper clocked the Dodge Challenger Hellcat at 158 mph on his rear facing radar, 151 mph as it swooped him.

If you were expecting a Hellcat-powered Ram 1500 you’d better forget that idea as it will not happen, at least at this time. These words came from Ram Trucks’ CEO Bob Hegbloom, but this doesn’t mean that the company couldn’t surprise us in the future. If built, the Ram 1500 Hellcat will be the successor to the Dodge Ram SRT-10, a pickup truck powered by the Viper’s V10 engine.

The Dodge Ram SRT-10 still holds the title of the fastest pickup truck in the world. For those who don’t know, Chrysler’s new 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 engine is able to deliver a staggering 707 hp and 881 Nm (650 lb-ft) of torque.

Bolted to a TorqueFlite 8HP90 8-speed transmission, this engine is capable to push the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat to a top speed of 204 mph (328 km/h).

Dodge said back in July that the first production 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat VIN0001 will be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson Last Vegas. The auction took place last weekend and the Challenger SRT Hellcat fetched an impressive $825,000. Taking in consideration that the standard 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat starts at $59,995, this means almost 14 times the base price.

Still, according to Dodge, the special Challenger SRT Hellcat is dressed in a Viper-exclusive Stryker Red Paint and it will never be another like it. In addition, the lucky buyers receives a HEMI painted presentation box with a VIN0001 electronic vehicle build book and video documentary, still shots, vehicle footage as well as an authentic Challenger SRT Hellcat embossed Laguna Leather iPad sleeve, a signed SRT Hellcat lithograph and an unique “birth certificate” for VIN0001.

Under the hood, there is the same 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 Hellcat engine that produces 707 hp and 650 lb-ft (881) Nm of torque.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is available to order and it seems that Chrysler aims to change its normal allocation methods for its dealers. How? Well, it’s quite simple! The Challenger SRT Hellcat allocation is now based on the number of Dodge vehicles sold by a dealer in the previous 180 days.

These words came from Tim Kuniskis a.k.a. Dodge chief, who also added that in December the company will make a second allocation calculation based on the sales in the previous 90 days.

According to Kuniskis, if dealers sell lots of Darts, Durangos or Journeys, they will get the rights to sell the Challenger SRT Hellcat too as this is the halo car of the brand. Dodge will also measure the number of days that Challenger SRT Hellcat models sit on dealer’s lot in order to determine how many units the dealer gets.

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.

Earlier this month, we told you that the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 Hellcat engine that powers the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was rated at an impressive 707 hp and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque. Today, the manufacturer announced that this model will carry a price tag of $59,995.

This means that the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat is not only more powerful than the Dodge Viper but also much cheaper. Still, if you want a cheaper version, you should take a look at the 2015 Challenger SRT 392, which was a starting price of $45,995.

This model uses a 392 HEMI V8 that generates 485 hp and comes with new six-piston front Brembo brakes, 20-inch forged wheels, an 18-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, three-mode adaptive suspension and all-new Drive Modes.

Two days ago Chrysler officially confirmed that the all-new 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 engine that powers the 2015 Dodge Challenger was rated at 707 hp and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque. Today, we found out that Dodge will use the new V8 hellcat engine also on the Charger.

The Hellcat-powered Charger will arrive later this year and will be offered with a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. This means that the Challenger SRT Hellcat will be more powerful than the current Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, which uses a 5.5-liter V8 that develops 585 hp and 663 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque.

Still, the vehicle is even more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG, that uses a 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine that generates 630 hp and 737 lb-ft (1000 Nm) of torque.

Ok, we already knew that the 2015 Dodge Challenger powered by its all-new 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat engine is powerful as Chrysler told us that it will deliver over 600 hp. The surprise came today, when the manufacturer released the official numbers: 707 hp and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque.

This means that the new Challenger is even more powerful than the Dodge Viper, which uses an 8.4-liter all-aluminum V10 engine that generates 640 hp and 600 lb-ft (813 Nm) of torque. Still, for those who don’t know, the 2015 Challenger is offered as standard with two key fobs, red and black.

The black key reduces the engine output to 500 hp, while the red key fob unleashes all the 707 hp. For the 2015MY, the Dodge Challenger was re-engineered and promises to be the most true-to-form muscle coupe with a new interior inspired by the iconic 1971 Challenger.
