Dodge Challenger Hellcat Arrives in Europe
Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat can be already acquired in Europe and responsible for this are the specialists at GeigerCars.de. The most powerful production muscle car with 707 hp, which will also make prominent appearance in ‘Furious 7', is showed here with some stylish tweaks which need some attention and can be seen in the gallery below.
An interesting fact, that is not so popular, is that the Hellcat 6.2-litre V8 unit under the hood of this Dodge is actually based on the larger displacement 6.4-litre, 492 hp engine. The latter we have seen powering the Challenger SRT 392. The difference here is that the first one includes a twin-screw supercharger, while the second is naturally-aspirated.
There is therefore no question where these 707 hp (567 kW) come from. The torque that we haven't mentioned is measured at 881 Nm (650 lb-ft). This results in a 3.7 seconds acceleration time for the 0-100 km/h sprint and a V-max of 320 km/h.
Because the engine is that powerful it requires a huge quantity of cooling air. This is why the Challenger received this new nose with big intakes behind which are positioned four large intercoolers.
The impressive exterior paint finish of this particular car is complemented by aggressive matt black graphics. All of this is then mimicked in the ‘Slingshot' wheels. They are black, multispoked and include and outer green strip. The size of the alloys is 9.5 x 20-inches while this of the tyres - 275/40R20. Oh, and do you notice the 390 mm two-piece Brembo brakes behind the wheels?
GeigerCars.de will offer all interested a huge variety of paint and trim options, while inside the choice is between Nappa leather with Alcantara and Laguna premium leather treatment. And if you already wonder about the price, it is 86,000 Euros which equals around $90,620 US Dollars. Although this is pretty impressive amount of money, we must admit that there is no other car on the European market with these powerful capabilities.
