2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack vs. 1969 Dodge Super Bee

Ok, not really… While we were down in Portland testing the Hellcat we also got to check out all the other 2015 Challengers. Ryan Douthit of Driving Sports shot the Hellcat video we posted last week (hanging out the back of a minivan on PIR). He also shot the video below with a R/T Scat Pack car, using Steve Cook’s beautiful 1969 Super Bee for a bit of historical perspective. Watch the video after the jump!

Leno Test Drives the Challenger Hellcat

Jay Leno reviews the Hellcat with Dodge president and CEO Tim Kuniskis. Why build a car with over 700 horsepower? The Challenger is a heavier car than the competition. So they went to their SRT engineers and simply said “Let’s get absolutely crazy with the horsepower and shut everybody up.” Bravo! Video after the jump.

Mike Musto Drives the Hellcat

Here’s the Hellcat video featuring Mike Musto that we helped produce for AutoNation. I think it came out pretty good, despite flight delays and a whole lot of rain. Thanks to Mike Volz and Stephen Cook for bringing out their old B-bodies, and to Ryan Douthit for doing a great job hanging out the back of the minivan at speed in the rain! Watch the video, then check out the pics after the jump!

2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat

Road & Track has some spy shots of the Charger Hellcat. Not surprisingly, it appears to share many of the features of the supercharged Challenger: wheels, brakes, chin spoiler, trunk lid spoiler and that hood scoop. Ralph Gilles should be displaying it’s absurd power for all to see in October. More pics after the jump!

Hellcat Priced at $59,900

This pic was apparently snapped yesterday at a media event in Portland (we’ll be going down there to check out the Hellcat next week). So not only is the new Hellcat more powerful and faster in the quarter than the competition from Ford or Chevy, it’s priced well below the Z28 and is only a few grand more than the GT500 and ZL1. Cheaper than you thought?
