Prepare for a wave of new articles & videos this week

I noticed that a new video just came out of the Charger Hellcat. The way these things typically work is that Dodge has a huge media event and invites lots of auto journalists. They're embargoed from releasing their reviews until a certain date, and it looks like that date is today. So expect a slew of new videos and articles this week!

Overall I liked the guy's enthusiasm in the video I linked above, although he got tongue-tied at a certain point. He tried to say that the Challenger was a muscle car whereas the Charger is tuned to be a GT car -- but the only term he could come up with was "sports car" which is laughable.

No, I saw that car in a preview video that TFLCar did. It's a normal Hemi. Dodge does a lot of business selling Chargers to police departments so I'm guessing that car was at the same press event since police fleet buys are big business.

It would be a hoot if Dodge did a Hellcat Pursuit car as a PR stunt though!

Hellcat Pursuit chasing down a Hellcat Chally on a "freeway with speeds in excess of 100 mph" sounds like a good closed course PR romp for a commercial.

He was especially happy when he realized that he lost the back end and he should probably be dead.

Are you not entertained? Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?

He's the poster child for stability control systems. He and his buddy make entertaining "regular guy" videos and neither one really drives very well. That said, I still like his reviews because he's not as jaded as a lot of pro car reviewers.

I gotta ask, do these demo cars have line locks for the wicked-big burnouts?
