This is a burnout. It may be the Platonic ideal of burnouts—the burnout all others aspire to be.
It’s also, it turns out, a burnout you can make your own for just $59,995. Full official pricing details for the whole 2015 Challenger range were released today from the 707-horsepower 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat's launch event.
The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is the most powerful muscle car ever, and it’s a screaming bargain too, priced from just $59,995.
That’s just $84.72 for each of the 707 horsepower, and you get a side of 650 pound-feet of torque for free.
Alongside the burnout bounty of the Hellcat, Dodge also announced pricing for the rest of the 2015 Challenger lineup. The SRT 392, with a not-at-all-shabby 485 horsepower, upgraded six-piston Brembo front brakes, three-mode adaptive suspension, and new Drive Modes function starts from $45,995.
The Challenger R/T leverages its 5.7-liter HEMI and new TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission (or six speed manual) for a fair bit of fun at $38,495, while the R/T Scat Pack offers 6.4-liter HEMI power, and two new R/T Shaker models add a dose of retro style.
The more pedestrian 2015 Challenger SXT benefits from this year’s redesigned exterior, and while not a tire-shredder, still offers a balanced 305 horsepower and EPA 30 mpg highway. If you’re after a base challenger, that can start from as little as $26,995.
The 2015 Dodge Challenger range, including the Hellcat, arrives this year, from the third quarter of 2014.
