The Krietz Auto Spotlight: Sinisterly Stylish & Ridiculously Powerful (03/19)
This week, in the Krietz Auto Spotlight is the 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. The SRT Hellcat comes stock with a stupid-powerful SUPERCHARGED 6.2L V8 engine, that delivers…707 horsepower to the rear wheels. The SRT Hellcat was built for both muscle car enthusiasts, and those looking for the best bang for their buck (in terms of performance). The price-to-horsepower ratio on this beast is one of the best in the modern muscle car game at $80:1HP ($80 per horsepower); it falls just behind the Ford Mustang GT, which provides a $78:1HP ratio. Seven hundred horsepower may seem unnecessary for the everyday roadways, and honestly, it kind of is. You may be thinking that the SRT Hellcat is also meant for the track, and only the track; however, you’d be thinking wrong. The Hellcat provides a comfortable, smooth ride on your everyday commute, and an aggressive, adrenaline-inducing experience on weekends at the track.
It is unnecessary, yet so rewarding to unleash all the power that this thing packs under its hood. Dodge did a fantastic job engineering this car for both. It’s extremely driveable and comfortable in everyday traffic, and it is more than willing unleash all 707 horses at your discretion, if ever necessary. For every Youtube video of the SRT Hellcat dusting supercars from Lamborghinis to Ferraris out there, there’s a story about someone wrapping one around a tree, or completely totaling it. It is important to respect the power that this thing is capable of providing.
This absurdly powerful beast comes stock with large Brembo brakes, an absolute necessity in taming the power this thing produces. Its aggressive, throwback styling is quite distinct, and stands out from the likes of the other muscle cars that inhabit the roadways. Everyone has a Mustang or a Camaro… The SRT Hellcat is nowhere near as prevalent, a lot more powerful, and honestly, a whole lot more aggressive in its cosmetics, performance, and sound.
