Traditional muscle cars have been around for a long time because people just love speed and they love to own fast cars. The 1960s and 70s were the high point for manufactured stock muscle cars but they have made a strong comeback in the last few years. The 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Coupe is one of the most noticeable muscle cars out this year and it lives up to its legendary muscle car reputation by being built for durability and speed – lots of speed.
2017 Dodge Challenger
The SRT Hellcat comes with an 8-speed auto transmission and a V-8, 6.2 Liter engine that pumps out 707 horses that will fly you from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds. We don’t recommend that you wait for a competitor at every stop sign because statistically, you will get more than one speeding ticket. On the other hand, two guys were running away from a bear when one stopped and put on his running shoes. His friend said, “Why are you putting on your running shoes? You can’t outrun the bear.” The guy looked at him and said, “I just have to outrun you.”
Now, that may sound like all you have to do is outrun the competitor who wanted to race you but it’s just not that simple. Yes, your 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat can and will beat the guy next to you. There’s no doubt about that at all. You’ll wipe the street with him and leave him crying because he will look like a fool for even attempting to defeat the mighty Challenger.
However, and don’t tell anyone we told you this because it might sound as if we are condoning street racing, which we are definitely not. You might think of wining quickly – that is, if you ever had to race somebody – and once again, we are not suggesting that you do. When, I mean, if you have to race somebody just do it quickly (is there any other way?) and turn at the first corner and get out of the neighborhood pronto. That other guy will be left in your dust and on the street where the highway patrol can ticket him easily.
Next week we will have tips on how not to get caught speeding on the Interstate.
