By now, I’m sure you’ve heard of the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. Since the car began production in the first quarter of 2015, it has quickly become the talk of the automotive industry with a herculean 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.

Yes, that’s right. The once utilitarian four-door is now the fastest sedan on the planet, and it’s supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 shattered the horsepower record for an American production engine.

With nothing more than a pair of street legal drag radials, the Hellcat will accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds and complete a quarter mile in 10.7 seconds at 126 miles per hour. For comparison, that’s quicker than a C7 Corvette Z06 that is nearly 1,000 pounds lighter.

Sure, anybody with a pulse would love to drive the wife’s hybrid family sedan to the nearest Dodge dealership and trade it in on a Hellcat. But with a $63,995 starting MSRP, it is certainly not for the faint-hearted. 

But what if I told you could have the power of a Hellcat in a Charger at nearly half the cost?

At Fast Lane, we’re selling a 2008 Dodge Charger SRT8 with only 23,000 original miles. Though its 6.1-liter Hemi V8 already made an impressive 425 horsepower and 420 pound-feet from the factory, this SRT8 has been extensively modified to Hellcat levels of performance.

Featuring an upgraded 426 cubic-inch Stroker engine with a centrifugal ProCharger, this SRT-8 put down 672 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels.

If floored from a stop, it will suck you back in the driver’s seat like a cyclonic Hoover vacuum in a state of helplessness. The 20” aluminum SRT wheels become high-speed fan blades and erupt in a cloud of smoke. With the scorched Earth behind you and a white knuckled grip on the steering wheel, a high-pitched giggle escapes that goes unheard over the thunderous SLP exhaust note. As the upgraded high torque capacity transmission shifts into third gear, motion blur sets in and you’re watching as the speedometer effortlessly climbs toward triple digits.

Though the symphonious sound from beneath the Charger’s carbon fiber hood begins to unravel your animal instincts, don’t be fooled into thinking you’re the one driving this maniacal Mopar. It drives you.

Forget your local Dodge dealership, come to Fast Lane today for a test drive. All you need is a valid license, and maybe an extra pair of underwear.
