The muscle car power war is on its way to becoming a global conflict. In fact, you can scrap that, there will be no fight - the upcoming Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat will be the most powerful production sedan in the world.
While the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat’s coupe shape throw its blown 707 hp in the arena with the most ferocious creatures money can buy, the Charger’s otherwise controversial two extra doors mean the American will look down on stuff like the 630 hp Mercedes S 65 AMG or the 616 hp Bentley Flying Spur.

And if we translate the comparison from the luxury to the performance sedan land, things look even brighter for SRT’s child, as the gladiators here don’t even reach the 600 hp mark.

We hear a wave of “power isn’t everything!” comments coming. Well, ladies and gentlemen drivers, this is a muscle sedan, so your argument is invalid.

Even if Dodge decided not to upset the Challenger Hellcat drivers and downtunes the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 to, say, 650 ponies, cousin Charger will still be the muscliest sedan on the planet.

Speaking of this, we do see a 707 hp Charger as rather possible. We’ll remind you that, before the 2015 revamp, the Challenger and the Charger happily shared the naturally aspirated 470 ponies churn out by the 6.4 liters of Hemi under their hoods.

What the Challenger and the Charger Hellcats will definetly share though will be the capped production. Chrysler recently hinted it could only build 1,200 units of the first, probably per model year and we’re expecting the sedan to be no different.

We’re not sure yet when SRT engineers will finish their Charger SRT Hellcat homework, but we could probably call this a 2015. The demonic saloon was caught on not-so-candid camera earlier this month, hiding its camo under another layer of camo.

Still, the Viper-like air intake in the hood seemed ready to such all of Detroit’s air in. What? You didn’t expected Chrysler to drill a hole in a headlight for the air intake like they did with the Challenger, did you?
