Ok guys, got some news on the hellcat, I'm in Detroit and I got a high ranking SRT Exec giving me the goods, he has all access and gave this info on good faith, yea, he's gonna hate me for this but thought I'd let you guys know the real deal.
They developed a 6.2 supercharged new engine for the SRT8.
The engine will come in the new challenger/barracuda in 2015 and will follow Into the 300's and chargers in 2016-17😞
They will issue driver step keys, driver step keys are as follows: when you purchase the car you will have a key that only allows between 400 and 500 HP, you have to take a SRT class to get the full key which will unlock full power, I have no idea how long this class takes or how fast after purchasing these cars you can take them. Sounds crazy but man it sounds like Chrysler!!!
Cars will retail for $70k and up...
Testing so far has produced 680hp to the crank but they are shooting for 700+ before release, they want it to be impressive, high 10's 1/4 mile straight from the factory (GTR kills)
There is talks of an all wheel drive application that shuts down after 35mph for needed traction but this is unconfirmed...
That's about it, if you know anything else please add to this, I've given all the info I got so I probably won't have answers to questions beyond what I've already talked about.
