Yes you read it right. The new Dodge Charger Hellcat put down a 0-60 time of 2.9 seconds at a speed test at Chrysler Headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan.
The 707 horsepower supercharged Hellcat no only dashed to 60 in less than 3 seconds, but also rand the 1/4 mile at 10.7 seconds on street legal drag radials. This car is all about engine and raw horsepower. The fact that the Charger is a name reminiscent of an era when American muscle cars ruled the road makes it even sweeter.
Bottom line: The Dodge Charger Hellcat does 0-60 in exotic car times at a fraction of the cost. With a price tag of $60,000 the term “bargain horsepower” brings on a whole new meaning. Will this put a dent in the higher end Euro sedan or exotic market? Probably not, but you have to count it as a win for good old American horsepower.
$284,900 will get you a new Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe to call your own and drive it however you like. Unfortunately for most, that means civilized countryside touring in a luxurious yet powerful car.
On the other hand there are some that like to be a bit more aggressive with their new Wraith.
What the attached video as this new Roll-Royce Wraith does powerslides and drifts to the drivers content. The 624hp V12-powered Wraith doesn’t skip a beat and handles like a much smaller agile car.
