Everyone who has even a little bit of blood still pumping through their veins is excited about the all-new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. It's a car with the greatest name, one of the most powerful factory-built engines on the planet, and it's wearing a sticker price that is a relative steal. Even the folks who've built the car are pumped about its arrival into the world.
Chrysler design boss Ralph Gilles recently took one out to the track to see what it could do against a few other machines. Gilles knows how to handle a car quite competently, and so he stuck his GoPro to the side of the Hellcat to capture his time at Grattan Raceway.
The primary portion of a 2:25 video that he uploaded to YouTube shows him chasing down a Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon. Excuse me, a CTS-V Sport Wagon... on racing slicks.
Gilles easily reels in the Caddy, stuffs the Hellcat snout up the longroof's tail pipe, and then eventually makes his way by. It's fun to watch, and even more fun to listen to. Seriously, take in that exhaust note because it's a glorious one.
