    In the February 2015 issue of Car & Driver, they reviewed the sister to the Challenger, the 2015 Charger Hellcat.

    Here were the performance numbers and some cool quotes:

    0-60 mph= 3.4 sec.
    0-100 mph= 7.2 sec.
    1/4 mile- 11.4 sec. @ 128 mph
    Top speed- 204 mph.
    Braking (70 mph to 0)= 153 ft.
    Skidpad= 0.94 g

    "Children cower at the sound of a blown Hemi starting; at full throttle, its supercharger whine and exhaust howl carry for miles."

    "Pity the Hellcat's 275/40ZR-20 tires futilely attempting to put down more than 8,000 lb/ft. of torque (650 lb.-ft. @ 4,8000 rpm from the engine X 12.34 through the driveline first gear)."

    "Pirelli's stock rises a notch every time a driver lights the smoke grenades under the rear fenders."

    "The Hellcat is the loosest of all road cannons. but put in capable hands, it will thrill and amaze."

    "What sounds like shredding titanium is the engine protesting the momentary power reductions accompanying each upshift."

    "What feels like teleportation flings you to 60 in 3.4 seconds and to 128 mph in the quarter mile."

    Here is the best quote:

    "Pleasure receptors think they've been treated to great sex, a tasty sirloin and Dutch chocolate ice cream- all at once."

    Ha ha, I wonder if dealers will let you test drive the new hellcats when they come in that weren't ordered.
