When it comes to American muscle cars, there’s a horsepower scale that goes something like this: First, there’s big power, then there’s seriously big power, and then there’s crazy power. And then, right where the thrill of speed pushes aside the fear of death, there’s Hellcat power.
This is the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody. Under its scooped hood is a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 pumping out 707 horsepower. Yes, that’s over 100 hp shy of its Challenger Demon brother, but it’s enough to smoke the Hellcat’s huge rear tires through several gears and blast this big, heavy coupe from 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. Hold your foot down and Dodge says this widebody can cover the quarter mile in 10.9 seconds, 0.3 seconds better than the standard-width Hellcat. That makes it one of the world’s quickest cars of all time.
