Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Quarter-Mile, HP, Price, Top Speed

Soooooooo… The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat… Um, yeah.  I’m not entirely sure what else to say about this car other than it’s fast (very, very, very fast) and powerful (very, very, very powerful).  After its flabbergasting power, everything else seems trivial.  We first wrote about the Challenger SRT Hellcat in May, mentioning Dodge’s claim of over 600 horse for this latest of Detroit muscle cars and...

SRT Viper GT3-R: $459,000 and Ready for the Track

The 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans ended yesterday.  With big wins by Audi, Nissan, Morgan and Porsche and the tragic death of Allan Simonsen on the fourth lap, this year’s Le Mans was one of for the record books. But, there is yet another reason why this year’s race was worth noting.  SRT was back in the LMGTE Pro class with the Viper GTS-R hoping to resurrect the Viper’s dominance from the late 1990s.  Two Vipers, the...
