707 HP Dodge Challenger Hellcat Shows Off Powersliding Talents

Even though this isn’t the most extreme powersliding you’ll ever see, it does take skill to be able to control such a powerful car once it starts to struggle for grip.

Actually no, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. As you probably know, when you buy a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat you get two separate set of keys. A red key and a black key.

The red key allows you to unlock all of the 707 HP and start drag racing your friends, while the black key will settle the car down at around 500 HP.

There’s no reason to think that these guys are using the red key while goofing around for the camera, but at this point it’s just speculation.

What we do know for sure is that a couple of months ago, Top Gear (the magazine) went and filmed this footage, which is pretty fun to watch – especially towards the end of the clip.

The car does this long-ish powerslide around the 28 second mark and we really wish they would have filmed more of it. Not to mention dropping the music soundtrack in favor of a more…mechanical one.

That, we can probably all agree with.
