How Does Dodge’s 707HP Charger SRT Hellcat Perform As A Daily Driver?

We all know that the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is extremely fast.

As a matter of fact, it was the world’s fastest production sedan at the time of its 2014 launch and even though the Model S now holds that title, Dodge’s creation is certainly the most absurd and over-the-top of the two.

Take the Charger SRT Hellcat to a drag strip and there’s a good chance it will wipe the floor with whatever it is pitted up against. But how does that performance translate onto the road? Can the Hellcat-powered Charger cope with everyday driving?

Carlos Lago and Jonny Liberman recently hit the streets in a bright red example to find out and on paper, the car seems like the perfect fun-yet-practical daily driver.

Compared to its Challenger sibling, the Charger not only has two extra doors and more refined styling, it is actually slightly faster in a straight line and only available with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Of course, the model’s real headline is its 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine delivering an incredible Lamborghini Aventador-beating 707 horses.

    that Johnny Loserman is so un-entertaining.
    He is the opposite of entertaining.

    i was feeling fine before i saw him in the video;
    now i feel like i need some kind of entertaining boredom relief.

    Perhaps i will watch the potted bamboo plant grow

      He was actually great before he got married! When he got the gig at Motortrend, he was still unmarried while working for Autoblog. He was one of their best contributors.
      That was hilarious about watching your bamboo plant grow!
