2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat price announced, and it's a bargain

The 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat is one of the nuttiest 4-doors that you can buy. It’s powered by a 707hp volcano, it can achieve a top speed of 204 mph, and it even has enough room for the wife and kids. There’s a handful of supersedans that can do the same thing, but they cost as much as a house (a nice house). The Dodge Hellraiser on the other hand... costs less than a 2015 Chevy Suburban. God bless America!

When Dodge unveiled the wicked-fast Challenger SRT Hellcat a few months ago, you could hear jaws hitting the floor. 707hp is Ferrari territory, and the acceleration numbers were unheard of in a Dodge. 0-60 took just 3.6 ticks, the quarter mile flew by in 11.7 seconds (on street tires), and the terminal velocity was aerodynamically limited to 199 mph. For a starting price of $59,995, the 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat was the performance bargain of the century.

Not content to sit on their laurels, the maniacs at SRT decided to shoehorn that crazy powerful Hellcat engine into the Charger. It’s a popular model, and it shares its underpinnings with the Challenger, so the monsterification wasn’t all that hard. The 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat uses the same supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 found in the Challenger. But the 4-door Hellkitty gets a pronounced hood scoop to suck air into the massive 2.4L IMI supercharger. Better aerodynamics allow the family-friendly Charger Hellcat to hit an un-governed top speed of 204 mph, and it can walk through the quarter mile in 11 seconds dead, wearing street tires. 0-60 takes just 3.7 ticks, and buying one takes just $63,995 U.S. dollars.

To put that into perspective, the Bentley Flying Spur starts at around $200k, and it can only manage a 200 mph top speed. A 2015 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ (4WD) isn’t a performance vehicle by any stretch of the imagination, but it starts at $65,990, which is $1,995 morethan the 204 mph 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat.

Too bad your wife won’t buy this performance math.
