2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat: 707 Horsepower? Hell Yeah! – Ignition Ep. 116
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Universal Technical Institute,
Carlos Lago drives the most powerful production muscle car on the market:
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. While it isn’t the most powerful
production V-8 in the world (which loses to the $1 million McLaren P1 by 20
hp before electric motors), the Hellcat’s 707 hp rating seems too
incredible to believe -- especially when you consider the cost. The
question is whether this Challenger has any brain to go along with its
extreme brawn. Through a trip to the Dyno, the test track, the road,
and a standing mile, we find out.
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

MuscleCar Tuner Showdown: HPE650/SuperSnake/SpeedfactorySRT8
We've compared nearly every combination of modern American muscle cars on
the market. Now it's time for the ultimate showdown - Hennessey's Camaro HPE650 vs Shelby's GT500
Super Snake vs Speedfactory's Challenger SRT8. We head to the Dyno, the test track and the
racetrack to determine which of these tuned pony cars reigns supreme.

Dodge Challenger Scat Pack: A Half-Price Hellcat

The name isn't great, even if it's rooted in history. All is forgotten upon
a press of the start button, however, because the Dodge Challenger Scat
Pack is a ridiculously fun machine set at half-Hellcat pricing.
Under the hood is a 485-horspower 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine that enjoys
ruining any relationship it may have had with its own rear tires. Inside is
a cabin that is actually from the 21-st century. Outside is retro styling
done right, with a clear nod to the past mixed with modern touches.
It's not perfect, but that makes it even more of a muscle car, and that's
part of the reason that we love it.
Just know that everywhere you go is now a Smoking Zone...
