This is the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, and we're sure that people are just going to call it the "Hellcat." Why? Because "Hellcat" is the name of the engine, and the engine in question is a 6.2L supercharged hemi V8 that produces "600-plus horsepower." That engine needs to breathe too, so in exhange the Challenger had to sacrifice two of its headlights in exchange for cold air intakes. 

That's right, Dodge is looking at the Shelby GT500 across town and thinking "we too should be making a ludicrously powerful muscle car." Luckily for car fans, the Hellcat will also come with new Y-Plus rated Pirelli four-season tires, SRT-exclusive forged wheels, and the largest front brakes even put into a Chrysler vehicle as standard equipment, so you don't die. Seriously, the Challenger isn't a small car, and we're pretty sure those brakes are going to be needed.
