    With 707 horses under the hood, the new Dodge Challenger has won the fight for horsepower bragging rights. At least for now. Not even the recently unveiled Corvette Z06, with 650 horsepower, can touch the Challenger in terms of sheer power output

    All that power comes from Chrysler Group's first factory-supercharged Hemi V8 engine. Because owners might not want to trust just anyone with 707 horsepower, the SRT Hellcat will come with two key separate "keyless ignition" key fobs to start the car. A red key fob will enable the driver to use the Hellcat's full power potential while drivers given the black key fob will be able to unleash "only" 500 horsepower.

    Given all that power, it's a good thing that the Hellcat engine comes with the largest brakes Chrysler Group has ever put on a car.

    I had a problem deciphering whether 700hp was more than 650. Now I know. Thanks, thread.

    While 707 horsepower will give this car amazing speed -- Chrysler claims it's the fastest, not just the most powerful, muscle car ever -- what drivers will feel off the line will be the car's 650 foot pounds of torque.

    The Challenger's new interior is designed to evoke the look of the early '70s muscle cars except, of course, with much better materials and construction. The Challenger SRT Hellcat will be available with either an eight-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual.

    My friend bought this one and he keeps doing hole shots in front of my house leaving long tracks of rubber when I'm not home. He's such a knucklehead.

    Dodge is owned by FIAT, so expect any new Dodge vehicle to die within two years

    The only problem I see is that it's a Chrysler (AKA Fiat) product, so there's gonna be problems...
