Update: 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Official HP Number Doesn’t Start With a “6”

Dodge caused quite a stir among muscle car enthusiasts when they took the wraps off the Challenger SRT Hellcat, the new top-spec offering of the brawny coupe. While the Hellcat boasts massive six-piston Brembo brakes, uprated suspension, a new optional 8-speed gearbox (a six speed manual is standard), and a host of aero tweaks to go along with its refreshed styling, the centerpiece of the model is the all-new, 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine. But they remained vague about horsepower specifics, only offering “over 600 horsepower” as any indicator of what to expect. Turns out Dodge was being rather coy.
