The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Just saying its name is enough to send a shockwave of excitement into the air among American muscle enthusiasts.
With a starting price of $59,995, we named it “Best Bang for the Buck” in our 2015 Exotic Car Buyers Guide. We’ve seen its power set brake pads on fire and Dodge had to halt orders in March because demand was so overwhelming.

The 6.2-liter supercharged hemi V8 is capable of producing an insane 707 hp and 650 lb-ft, launching it to 60 mph from a standstill in 3.6 seconds. So what do you do when you have three of these beasts at your disposal?
Take ’em out, close off a few roads, hit the asphalt and burn as much rubber as possible, of course.
Lease Rates recently had exactly that opportunity, and took full advantage of the moment. A video posted to YouTube July 31 shows us their day with the Hellcats, and all it did was make me want one even more than before.
