Is your heart beating fast yet? Well, don’t have a heart attack! There’s plenty more to know about the car. Here’s a little more information regarding the 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat SRT’s performance and the dilemma behind the magical “Red key.”
The Fastest Muscle Car, End of Discussion!
Whoever said, “Racing … because golf, football, and baseball only require one ball,” probably had the 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat SRT in mind, as this mean-machine race-muscle car requires two complete balls of steel to function!
It comes equipped with a large and powerful 6.2-liter Supercharged HEMI V8 engine that can generate a net horsepower of 707 and torque of 650 lb-ft, enabling the vehicle to zoom from halt to 60 mph in just a matter of 3.6 seconds and complete a quarter mile track within 10.8 seconds.
With its top track speed of over 199 mph, the hellcat has a bite that scares all other dogs in the muscle car segment! It also has Sport, Track, Default, and Eco settings that affect suspension, traction controls, paddle-shifter behavior, and transmission shift points to deliver varied performance.
Unleash the Full Power of the Dodge Challenger SRT® Hellcat
The 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat SRT comes with both a black and a red key fob. The black key offers reduced engine output and it limits the horsepower output to 500, but this doesn’t affect the functionality of all the other features of the car.
However, just like in the Matrix when Neo takes the red pill and wakes up in the real world, the red key awakens the true 707 horsepower of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, hence unleashing its full potential and giving the driver a free ticket to a joy ride.
But, how do the keys work? Well, generally when the driver starts the car, the vehicle uses it sensors and detection-technology to instantly recognize which key is in the driver’s possession and then display it on the main screen.
If the driver has both keys, the car will automatically recognize the red key, hence delivering the full potential and fun of the vehicle. In circumstances where the driver wants to shift the key, the car must be turned off and started again.
Apart from this, “The benefit of having two keys is it allows you to give your car to someone that maybe isn’t quite as experienced, and it gives them a lower power level they can get used to.” As a result, drivers get to choose their own adventure!
Needless to say, Dodge has certainly done its due diligence with the vehicle. And while there’s always something about cars that seem to calm us guys down, the 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat SRT has got many hearts speeding like a bullet due to its unmatched performance and power.
And this leaves only one interesting thought: life’s too short to drive a boring car! So, for anyone looking to create a little excitement in their life, purchasing this beast and unlocking its true power with the red key might just prove a good option. After all, it’s ride or die!
