2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Albert Lea MN

When picking a name for a vehicle, often times makers will go for obscure names based off foreign language or give a car a mission or simply just give it a name that implies a concept. Sometimes they’ll just throw together letters and numbers. Often times its rather hit or miss, either summing the vehicle up pretty well or just sounding weird. The Dodge Challenger sounds pretty good. But with the release of the new version of the Challenger’s SRT trim, Dodge hits it out of the park in putting a name with a vehicle. The new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat in Albert Lea, MN sounds just as feral as the name implies, and it is a thing of beauty.

With the original Dodge Challenger SRT producing 470 hp and 470 lb-ft from a 6.4L V8, the Hellcat takes that and turns the anger up to 11. Rocking a force-induced V8, the most powerful eight-cylinder ever fitted to a car by Chrysler, the newest SRT produces over 600 hp, coupled with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. To help the engine perform, the entire hood has been redesigned. In fact, to aid even further, there is actually an air intake in the headlights. So as its driven, the lights suck in air to pump back to the engine. That is an odd innovation to get the most from this monster.

And the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat truly sounds like a monster. This is not a quiet car. It barely sounds like a car at all. It screams like some otherworldly beast and the noise is amazing. It may be one of the most unique sounding cars in a long time. Perfect for someone looking for a muscle car that sounds like one. Sure there will be mod men who prefer something old that they’ve fixed up, but there is something to be said about the beautiful terror that Dodge has produced.
