    Supersnake is from a tuning company... Doesn't count.

    But we'll have to see when it actually hits the pavement.

    Pretty cool. Wonder how many will be produced and the price to go with the prestige.

    I'm sorry but Mopar's power numbers are slightly irrelevant. The SRT8 Challenger boasts a nice 470hp, and only barely beats out a bone stock 5.0 in the quarter mile. IMO, it's not worth the extra pricetag attached to it. That being said I would have to imagine the 650hp Shelby would stomp all over this Hellcat, and that's the 2014 model. The 15 I'm sure is going to be even more fierce, I would think.

    I'm not slamming it, I think the Challenger was the best rendering of a classic muscle car that any car company has done. It's just not as fast as some of the other muscle cars out there, due to it's power to obsessive weight ratio. Still, cool looking car. It's insane how much power cars are coming off the showroom floor with these days

    Yea, they cost too much for what you get, and cost too much to be competitive to the Mustang and Camaro. Sound and look good though. I equate Mopar to Harley. Sound great, look great, but cost a whole lot to make them have any balls. However, there is an enormous following of old white men that keep the breed alive lol

    Welcome to the internet; where every 215hp SN95 owner drives a 1000+ hp monster.

    Even with the extra little bit of power a gt500 will still walk it

    At the end of the day it's a Chrysler product and the wire harness or ecu will burn up in it. Chrysler has the worse customer satisfaction and the dealers only have to reach a 71% positive customer relationship. I work for Toyota and they require us to have a 97% positive customer relationship. Any company that thinks mediocre is good enough then I'm not buying from them.

    2016 Gt350(Gt500 replacement) will be a N/A 5.8l 4v 650hp flatplane crankshaft, vct Big 3 dominator! Ford will always appear to be the underdog on purpose.

    Sweet car! Id make payments on it!!
