For our Mopar Muscle Thursday feature we have a video that is hard to beat – with a pair of 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat models doing gigantic, nasty burnouts on a drag strip. The supercharged 6.2L Hellcat Hemi delivers 707 horsepower and 650lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful American production car of all time – beating the Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang by a very healthy margin.
While Dodge brand CEO Tim Kuniskis has also commented that it will be the fastest American muscle car ever, this video doesn’t show how fast the Hellcat Challenger will be. In fact, we barely get to see the car move at all through the massive clouds of smoke – but the symphony of blown Hemi V8s and the mind blowing tire murders committed by these two Challengers make this video well worth a second and third look.
Needless to say, make sure that you have your speakers cranked up as hearing the twin 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat super muscle cars in action is half of the fun of this video!
