Have You Ever Looked Up the Definition of “Hellcat”?

When a muscle car has 707 HP, running to the dictionary and looking up its name falls behind the urge to get behind its wheel and exercise drivability. Yes, this is our excuse for not having looked up the definition of “Hellcat” until recently.

The Mariam-Webster dictionary defines the Hellcat as either a “Witch”, or “a violently temperamental person; especially an ill-tempered woman”.

Just in case you're wondering what happened to the image above, we do have an explanation for it. While we’re not sure whether Uma Thurman would daily drive one of these demonic kittens, we found her Kill Bill posture appropriate for the definition we’re talking about here.

To our defense, we did tell you to stalk Dodge’s SRT division when talking about all the Easter Eggs gravitating around the Hellcat machines. We’ll remind you the output figure of the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 was made public well before the press release was published, being displayed as hidden message on the 8.4-inch infotainment screen of the car.

Amusingly enough, the Hellcat still holds enough secrets for some. For instance, we recently told you about a detailing guy who didn’t know about the headlight intake of the 707 HP Challenger. The man noticed the detail while he was giving the Dodge one hell of a bath and called the owner to report the “missing lens”.

We’ll cut the man some slack though since he has a sense of humor that allowed him to share his story with the world wide web.
