The 2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat – Hollywood On Wheels

On a first glance, the 2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat gives the subtle impression of a reincarnated American muscle car. You know, the type that graced the streets of San Francisco in the 1968 Hit movie – Bullit. And coming from a company ( Dodge) that has a reputation for inclining towards a 2-seater, sports-carlike angle, the 2017 iteration has a surprising capacity for four, excluding the driver. Back in 1968, the first predecessor of the 2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat was at the time the world’s fastest production automobile rated at 375bhp. Enter 2016, and more than four decades later, if the 2017 generation is anything to go by, then Dodge still retains the Midas touch when it comes to muscle cars.

The design language

There’s no denying that the 2017 Dodge is one good-looking car. The combination of vents, scoops and the mythical Hellcat visage is certainly going to be a crowd-puller, should you turn up with this car at a social function. Not to mention the bold, contemporary Dodge-Charger build that complements excellently the otherwise sleek modern touches.
Simply put, the Hellcat is an eccentric fusion of an ordinary family sedan car and a hard-core dragster.

Engine performance

It’s without a doubt that the powerful, monster-sized 707 horsepower engine is the selling point of this iteration of the Hellcat. The 6.2 litre Supercharged V8 coupled with a massive 650 pound per feet torque literally makes this car a monster on heels. But that’s not all. The sonic boom bolstered with an equally loud exhaust note is guaranteed to awe even your most indifferent neighbours.

Take it for a test-drive and this Hellcat can easily gain an impressive 60mph just under 4 seconds. This makes one of the most powerful engine maniacs out there. Step harder on the accelerator and you’ll see the 2017 Dodge Charger SRT fly with a ballistic 204mph or just about 328km/h. Nonetheless, we wouldn’t advise you to cruise at that speed, lest NASA mistakes you for a stray comet!

The Interior and controls

One exceptional thing about Hellcats that make them stand out from the ordinary muscle car is that the interior is always designed with the avid car racer in mind. Therefore, expect the 8-speed auto gear combination to be as smooth as a virtual racing SRT in your PS4’s Need For Speed game. And nothing screams 2016 technology as the fully-fledged LCD backed controls that feature a wide option of driving modes. The Sport button, for example, straps the ride in a frenetic racing mode and releases all the brakes at the fall of the hammer- a typical dragster.

Further, you won’t have to worry about the braking system, in case you’re the type that likes to cruise down the Interstate highways at the usual neck-breaking speed. The brakes are an epic combo of a six-pot Brembo with massive discs stopping the Hellcat almost instantaneously, should you push down the pedal.

Release date and price

If you’re wondering whether you could get your hands on this phenomenal ‘family dragster’, then you’ll be pleased to know that the 2017 Dodge Charger SRT hellcat has been available in the US and many other parts in the world for some time now. And at $65000 it’s quite clear that you’re really getting what you’re paying here.
