Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat: Most Powerful Sedan in the World

Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat4

That is the claim from the American manufacturer. The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat beats off competition from all around the globe as the most powerful production sedan in the world. We showed a video of the Hellcat in our list of current best TV adverts, check it out here.

A Big V8

A supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V8 engine does the work producing 527 kW and 880 Nm of torque. That’s ridiculously powerful for a four-door sedan and shunts the Hellcat down the quarter mile in 11 seconds flat. Top speed is right up there with the likes of the McLaren 12C at 326 kph.

The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is no ordinary Charger however, nearly every body panel had to be reworked and in some cases cut out to let hot air escape. LED lights have been fitted front and rear to add dramatic effect.

Rev-Matching Gearbox

A heavy duty eight-speed automatic gearbox has been fitted, capable of shifting gears in just 160 milliseconds, whilst matching the revs on the downshifts.

Two sets of Keys

The Hellcat has two sets of keys that work in it, one black and one red. The black one, once inserted, unleashes the Hellcat in a reduced state of power and torque. Once you insert the red one though, all hell breaks loose and you get full access to the 527 kW and 880 Nm of torque.

Interior Style

New interior design elements have been added, including SRT three-spoke, flat-bottom steering wheel, 7-inch reconfigurable digital gauge cluster, 8.4-inch touchscreen, Nappa leather and Alcantara suede seating.

Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat features some of the latest high-tech features, including the new Uconnect Access system which has some sweet tricks like theft-alarm notification, voice texting, 3-D navigation and the ability to turn the Charger into a Wi-Fi hotspot.
