The company announced, last month, their intention to shoehorn their 707hp 6.2 liter supercharged Hemi Hellcat V8 into the sedan. While few doubted the capabilities of the engine, many questioned whether the Charger platform could unleash the motor's full potential.
This week, the naysayers were silenced when the company revealed the car's astonishing performance numbers.
Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Hellcat-powered Charger can make the dash from 0-60 mph in a scant 3.7 seconds and to 100mph in less than 13. It can blitz the quarter mile run in 11 seconds on road tires.
Top speed is 204 mph.
For the 2015 model year, engineers at Dodge gave the already handsome Charger a facelift to align the sedan's styling with the company's new Euro-inspired design theme. The front end is now dominated by a large black mesh grill and striking LED headlights.
