For my muscle car friends… This is a photo I recently took of a 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack with 485 HP, stock (6.4L Hemi V8). It also has 475 lb-ft of torque along with paddle shifters for the automatic models or a six speed in the manual ones, but both are equally hard to find. They are not as difficult to locate as a Hellcat model, but still hard to find. Of course, the Hellcat comes with 707 HP.
Only 8,382 Scat Pack Challenger R/T’s were produced in 2015, globally. That of course makes it a rare breed. As for the Hellcat, 7,168 were manufactured in 2015.
The Scat Pack hits 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and 100 mph in 9.6 seconds. Keep in mind the retro looking Challenger weighs in at 4,261 pounds. The Hellcat covers 60 mph in just 3.6 sec. and can reach 199 mph for a top speed. Meanwhile, the Scat Pack version sits behind the Hellcat with a top speed of 185 mph.
By the way, John Francis Dodge founded the Dodge Company with his brother Horace. The two left jobs at Ford Motor Company in Detroit, Michigan and in 1917 produced their first commercial car. The rest is history.
