What makes it special: The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Coupe is a modern, thrilling muscle car. It boasts clean lines blending classic style with contemporary design. It's the only coupe currently offered by Dodge, since the discontinuation of the Dodge Viper model. Safety features include blind-spot monitoring, a rear cross-traffic alert and forward-collision warning. Standard equipment includes a Uconnect infotainment system with 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Andriod Auto, USB and auxiliary outputs, a 2-zone automatic climate control and remote start.

What made it famous: The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat features a 6.2 liter V8 boasting 707hp, and can be mated to a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission. New for 2018 is the Challenger SRT Demon, which is built for the drag strip. It has been certified by the National Hot Rod Association as THE fastest quarter-mile production car in the world, running down with a time of 9.5 seconds at 140 mph. Demon is also the fastest of any production car when it comes to acceleration of 0-60 in 2.1 seconds, and 0-100 in 5.1 seconds. Demon features a 6.2 liter V8 boasting 808hp, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Why I would want one: I drove an SRT Hellcat. Amazing. It changed me ( In a VERY good way.)

Fun fact: The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Coupe, along with Demon and other Challenger models can be checked out at the Connecticut International Auto Show, running from November 17-19th, at the Connecticut Convention Center. They range in price, from a base price of $26,995 to $84,995.
