In the 1970s, the Dodge Challenger was the car to have if you were cool and wanted a ride with enough power to melt asphalt. More recently, the Big Three — Ford, Chevy and Dodge — rolled out new models with styling cues from the originals. Not content with a car that simply looked a lot like the original Challenger from Vanishing Point, Dodge presented us with the Hellcat version. Powered by a supercharged 707-horsepower engine, this car will quickly determine the worthy from those who should stick to a Prius. Yes, it is fast, achieving 60 mph neck-and-neck with a Porsche 911 in 3.6 seconds. If you want to be king of the red light drags and be the coolest parent when you drop off your kid at school, this is your car. If you want to go around corners fast at Homestead Speedway, not so much. Bottom line? It’s fast, it’s pretty and it will beg you to tickle its hp, even if you don’t want to; Dodge.com.
