717 HP Dodge Charger Hellcat let loose on the Autobahn
This week, the guys at AutoTopNL took a Dodge Charger Hellcat for a quick spin on the German Autobahn. This section of tarmac is ideal for testing out the top speed of the mighty Charger Hellcat, as there’s no speed restriction.
The Charger Hellcat is powered by a 6.2-liter HEMI V8 that pumps out 717 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque. At one time, it was the most powerful mass-production sedan in the world, before the Hellcat Redeye came along. In the Redeye, the motor is tuned to 797 hp and 707 lb-ft.
The Charger Hellcat is exactly what we expect from a big and powerful American muscle. It’s pretty brisk too, despite its size and weight. That meaty V8 pushes the car close to 186 mph (300 km/h) within no time.
