Yesterday, my Facebook feed was filled with two basic posts. The first one was “Oh no, America isn’t in the World Cup anymore!” But the second? That post one was something I actually cared about: “Holy crap! The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has 707 horsepower! Oh my God!”
While I obviously think this is awesome, I can’t say I’m super surprised. Seriously, did you think that Ma Mopar was going to let an engine called the Hellcat—the first factory force fed product—post anything less than stupendous figure? Because I didn’t. This escalation proves that the horsepower wars are far from over—and that’s good news for everyone who loves the smell of gasoline and tire smoke.
