Dodge has announced the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat will become the fastest muscle car ever created as the National Hot Rod Association has certified it will have a ¼-mile time of 11.2 seconds at 125 mph (201 km/h) with its stock Pirelli P Zero tires. When drag radials are used, the time falls to 10.8 seconds at 126 mph (202 km/h).

According to Dodge President and CEO Tim Kuniskis, “With the new Challenger SRT Hellcat, we’re reaching deep into our history and bringing back the notion from the muscle car era of the street and strip dual-purpose car. Not only can Challenger run 10s on the drag strip, but you can also fit your family and drive cross country. This new 2015 Dodge Challenger is the ultimate GT muscle car.”

As a refresher, the Challenger SRT Hellcat is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops 707 bhp (527 kW) and 650 lb-ft (880 Nm) of torque. It can be connected to either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic gearbox.
