Rumor: Hellcat Powered Dodge Charger SRT On the Way

Cars, News I By Winding Road Staff I July 25, 2014
Recently discovered SAE documents indicate that the 707 horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat motor used in the top spec 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT is also bound for at least one other engine bay in the Dodge lineup.
SAE is a third party company that certifies engine output, although currently Ford, GM and Chrysler are the only manufacturers utilizing the certification. Regardless of the service’s popularity across the automotive landscape, it none-the-less indicates the pending existence of a 707 horsepower Dodge Charger, which would make the Hellcat-powered four door the most powerful sedan on sale today, and more than 100hp more powerful than its closest competitor, the BMW 30 Jahre M5, an extremely limited production version of the BMW super sedan that bumps power up by 25 ponies over the 575hp M5 Competition Pack.
As is often the case with SRT products based on the LX platform, it stands to reason that the Charger SRT Hellcat will likely also get the beefed up ZF 8-speed transmission from the Challenger SRT Hellcat, along with its six-piston Brembos, adjustable damping, and trick active exhaust system.
