They are performance bargains.
Most American automakers have shifted from building overpowered, straight-line muscle cars to well-handling sports cars that can rival Europe’s best. Dodge didn’t get the memo. The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat exists as the last school muscle car available. Big engine at the front, a supercharger bolted to it, and a steering wheel thrown in for good measure in case you want to turn right or left.
Even with a starting price of $58,995, the Hellcat is easily the cheapest way to get a new car with over 700 horsepower. But that price isn’t exactly one that everyone can afford, meaning the Hellcat has remained a halo car for the Dodge brand. But what about a used one? Dodge doesn’t have the most spotless track record for depreciation and luckily, this means used Hellcats are now remarkably affordable.
