2. 2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat – Hell On Wheels
For Dodge, SRT stands for Street and Racing Technology. A Dodge with an SRT badge is always a fast car. But what about Hellcat?
Both the SRT Charger and the Challenger got this new variety back in 2014. It brings a supercharger provided by AHA America to the already powerful 6.2L V8 engine. The result is the most powerful engine in America, with 717hp.
Fun fact: the car needs to be started with a separate red key to unlock all the power.
Guess what ? The gearbox is an 8-speed automatic with sequential manual transmission provided by ZF, which allows the Charger Hellcat to reach 62mph in… 3.4 seconds! The car features only rear-wheel drive, which means the smell of burning rubber is never far, but hopefully guys from SRT fitted the Hellcat with launch control!
The best thing about this charger is the simple fact that this is a 204 mph, 717hp everyday car. And it’s actually cheap: $75 000 fully equipped. This is arguably the best HP/$ ratio out there.
