The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Is Selling Like Hot Cakes

With the current sales month ending today, the Chrysler Group is celebrating one very special feat. No, we're not referring to Halloween and glorified jack-o'-lanterns. As it happens, the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat sold a lot better than anyone anticipated the new muscle car king to do.

Official data isn't available just yet, but the Allpar team has learned a very interesting figure. Dodge chief executive officer Tim Kuniskis reportedly told that more than 4,000 people ordered a Challenger SRT Hellcat by the time the ordering system was operational, with the current total well over 5,000.

That's not half bad for a car that was rumored it'll be so exclusive, only 1,200 would be sold per year. We didn't buy that rumor when it surfaced because it was as clear as day a production cap would be bad for a struggling Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles NV that just announced a tenth of Ferrari S.p.A. will go public in order to pay a little of its 11.4 million euro debt.

The previously mentioned Mopar enthusiast site is also reporting that a local Dodge dealership informed them that "all of the Hellcats coming into their dealership are sold," with a new batch of Challener SRT Hellcats slated to be offered in December. Allpar's insider told that the muscle car king fetches even $10,000 over the $59,995 MSRP for very obvious reasons - who says no to a supercharged 6.2 HEMI V8?

On an ending note, we do have a hunch that even though the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is a tad costlier at $63,995, it will sell even better than its two-door counterpart. 707 horsepower under the hood of a four-door sedan that you can drive on a daily basis is an offer few gearheads can refuse.
