Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Production Limited to 1,200 Units

A Chrysler Group development employee has recently dropped a curious hint about the most powerful muscle car ever. Those among you that are thinking of dropping $60,990 on a 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat should better hurry 'cause only 1,200 examples of the breed will be allocated to U.S. dealers.

When asked by motoring publication Edmunds if that piece of info is true, Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis has declined to confirm whether production will be limited to only 1,200 units or 1,200 Challenger SRT Hellcats will be built on a yearly basis. The carmaker's chief executive officer has also told that " We don't know what the market demand is. We are working on allocation formulas right now..."

The Dodge brand's numero uno continued by saying: "I can't tell you exactly what we will do. Will we allocate based on past Challenger sales? Will we base it on Challenger V8 sales? Whatever it ends up being somewhere in that group of possibilities it will then be opened up to anybody who is a Dodge dealer." If you take into account that Dodge has some 2,400 dealerships scattered throughout the United States of America, we expect that only major ones located near densely populated areas will be eligible to sell the brutish SRT Hellcat.

For those of you that have second thoughts about dropping $60k on a Dodge Challenger, let us remind you what a SRT Hellcat is. First and foremost, it's less expensive than the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 and an insignificant amount of dough more costly than the Ford Mustang GT500. Furthermore, that 6.2-liter supercharged mill under the aluminum bonnet packs 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. On the dragstrip, that translates to a staggering 10.8-second quarter mile run if equipped with drag radials.

In terms of bang for your buck, the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is an offer one can't refuse.
