Mopar nowadays may be just a division specialized in making stickers and other visual bits and bobs, but in the era that gave us Motown music and hits like the classic Dancing in the Street by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Mopar was proper Detroit muscle. With the 2015 Dodge Challenger and Charger in Hellcat guise, Motown and Mopar have both been reborn.
Bear with me on this one for a second. Motown Sound is highly sought-after by music enthusiasts these days and it’s no wonder why. Crafted with soul and an ear towards catchy pop appeal, the groovy back beat and bass guitar lines together with the melodic chord structures and a call-and-response singing style live on in a few modern V8 lumps.

It may be romantic to say that the automakers from Detroit and their vee eight engines influenced the original Motown musicians, which also worked in the factories before they hit it big on the Billboard, but one thing is a given: Motown stands for motor and town, which is also a direct reference to Detroit Motor City. It’s easy to understand why the good ol’ American V8 engine is so closely related to Motown.

Over the years, the Ford Boss 302 small-block V8, GM’s small-block V8 and Chrysler’s HEMI V8 have been hailed as the best-sounding eight-cylinder motors made in the U S of A during that era. Nowadays however, Ford’s Coyote V8 doesn’t sound extremely enticing, but the Chevrolet LT1/LT4 V8 and the 707 hp 6.2 blown HEMI eight-pot that equips the SRT Hellcat brothers are the rave in terms of aural pleasure.

And good golly, have we got some V8 thunder for you to enjoy. Cue the following burnout compilation, which if full of 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat smoky stuff. Don’t feel sorry for the poor rear tires though. Like any form of art, making good music or doing a mad burnout both require some sacrifices to be made. Now press play and kick the blues in the purest SRT Hellcat style.
