the Dart R/T concept

Back in ’12 (for model year ’13) we were supposed to see a Dart R/T upon this compact’s debut. Then that got changed out for the name Dart GT. Now it’s back, sort of. The ’14 (or ’15?)

Challenger Hellcat- most powerful ever.

Seven Hundred Seven Horsepower. One more time, in digits: 707 hp! WOW.

Not even Chevy or Ford has beaten this number without going to Shelby or Lingenfelter first.

Again, SEVEN HUNDRED SEVEN FREAKIN HORSEPOWER.

Oh yeah, 650 foot pounds in the torque department!

And, if your worried about the valet, there are two key fobs with the Hellcat, one of which turns power down to ‘just’ 500.
