Dodge’s official word on the Charger Hellcat’s top speed is 204 mph. That number was not arrived at with a slide rule but on a track. Two radar gun fly-bys, one with the wind and one against. Find more info at Allpar. Video after the jump!
Motor Trend’s Head 2 Head does a comparison between the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Per Johnny Lieberman, “America. First we went to the moon then we built the Hellcat.” Video after the jump!
Anybody up for piloting a 1970 Chrysler Newport convertible with three on the tree, no power steering and no power brakes? Radio delete to boot! (after-market radio added later) Hooniverse located this uniquely low optioned land yacht on eBay. Follow the eBay bidding here. More pics after the jump.
In December, we posted a piece on a Hellcat that met a tree shortly after being purchased, Hellcat Wrecked. Allpar has now located that same car on www.iaai.com, an auction website for salvaged vehicles. The Dodge has only 64 miles on it and the engine still starts. It will be interesting to see what the car sells for.
Steve Oliveira purchased this 318 powered Barracuda in 1977. After a few, shall we say, modifications it has become the blown, 605 ci Hemi-powered, +1000 hp beauty that you see here. He describes the car with the following statement: “Whereas a modern car invites you to take it out for a drive, this one dares you to.” We like that! Find more info at Hot Rod.
