The January 2015 issue of Automobile magazine ran an article on the 2015 Charger Hellcat.

Here are some quotes:

"Hellaciously quick. The Charger is 160 pounds heavier (4,575 lbs.) than its Challenger cousin,but the extra weight doesn't keep it from a higher top speed (202 mph vs. 199 mph)."

"The result is a Dodge-tested 3.7 second scamper to 60 mph, 0.2 sec. behind the two-door (Challenger). It can also reach an insane 204 mph, 5 mph beyond the Challenger (due to better aerodynamics)."

"The Charger Hellcat is like a devil on one shoulder, angel on the other. The devil whispers, 'Yo pal, there isn't a cop for three counties. Let's try that 11-second quarter mile, the 202 mph top speed or fry some rubber for lunch'. The angel rolls his eyes and says, 'please we're picking up the kids. Let's relax, enjoy this glorious Wi-Fi connection, and dial the new drive modes to Full Barcalounger. besides, you got a ticket last week."

"The red key unleashes the full satanic majesty, making the Hellcat what Dodge bills as the world's quickest, most powerful production sedan. Not a $100,000 AMG Mercedes. Not a $300,000 Bentley. But a Dodge, priced at $64,900."

"On track, this Charger is stable and tractable for such a brutish machine. The body leans, but there's no wallow. Steering is largely mute, but 20-inch Pirelli P Zero tires offer ample aural warning before they give up the ghost. And that sound: a smoky stock-car braaap that owners will replay like their favorite song."

"Two doors or four, the Hellcat will whup the Z/28 in most any street contest...let the Motown battles rage."
