    Who doesn't love massive amounts of horsepower? Certainly no one on Hellcat.org. According to a anonymous Chrysler source who gave the dish to Jalopnik, the Hellcat has been dyno'd all the way up to an insane 825 HP. Eye bulging horsepower numbers indeed, but they are still having trouble meeting emissions requirements at the advertised 707 HP. The source said there were "extreme issues" meeting the emission requirements, so this will be very interesting to see how the Dodge boys solve this problem before the first Hellcats are delivered.

    Hopefully this will not delay the launch (pun intended) and customers will receive the SRT Hellcat's at the expected delivery date, but this is definitely something we'll keep our eye on.

    One last order of business now that we are on the subject of horsepower. That same anonymous source said that the "707 HP number is not only conservative, but he's not really sure where it came from in the first place." It's probably just the nice looking symmetrical '707' that the marketing team jumped on, but fans will be pleased to know that other dyno tests peg the ponies at 720. Yeah, nobody is disappointed now are they.

    The source said at the wheels, buyers should expect something in the 630 HP range, which is still plenty of power.

    Oh man! That means that some simple aftermarket tweaks and this beast could yield a lot more power then stock :cool:

    Too much is never enough. More, More More.

    Just tap out when in submission, otherwise pour it on.

    oh man, I hope the emissions issue doesn't cause any delays. I am already chomping at the bit to get my butt in the seat and my foot on the pedal!! The 10 weeks I was told from order date is brutal, any longer and my luck there will be too much snow on the ground to even get to enjoy my new toy.

    No kidding, you are at a much higher risk than I am for having bad weather around that time. Good luck! Lets hope they get the emissions issues resolved and our toys get here in time to play.

    There's an independent car magazine video showing at 671/606 at the wheels.

    I could care less about a delay so long as SRT doesn't decrease the horsepower just to meet emissions specs.

    Yeah saw this article first day it came out. That must mean dodge may be putting a limiter to 707HP to meet emissions. :eek:
