Default C7 Z06=Old News - 707 HP Dodge Hellcat=C7 ZR1 with 750hp

With Today's official release of HP figures on the dodge hellcat at 707hp, its reasonable to believe GM will have to up that number with a C7 Zr1.

Cool mill in the Hellcat, tho.

Complete different classes the two cars are in. The question is what will they do with Viper.

Kudos to the team at Dodge

Does anyone know the weight difference between the Hellcat's V8 and the Viper's V10?.

Now we will have to wait and see what tricks are up the sleeve for the Viper and the new Shelby

Why are you even mentioning a Challenger in the same sentence as a Corvette?

WOW, what a cool ride. To me, I agree with others that the challenger is the best looking of the muscle car retro rides. Now with 707 HP, 650 TQ and a modern 8 spd beefed up auto and manual stick available, the horsepower junkies like a lot of us will be beating a path to the challengers door. Way cool.

It's a great time to be a car guy. Just think, at the rate things are going, in 10 years the halo vette will have north of 1,500 hp and a KERS system custom-fitted to your junk to keep you "fully engaged."

Should the ZR1 up the weight advantage too of over 1000 lbs??? That tank needs it. All that weight will break parts once a few mods happen.

And should drop down to skinny 275 tires like the Hellcat

A lot of nervous/anxious suits at GM today after this news broke hahaha.
I was considering a stingray or the new z06 or even a zl1 but now I'm waiting to see what this cat is all about.

"Most powerful muscle car ever". Pretty awesome to be able to say that. Can't wait to test drive that thing.

If you pass up a C7 Z06 for this, you win retard of the century award.

The Z06 will still be quicker and faster in a straight line by a considerable amount. Let's not even discuss track, because the Z06 destroys basically anything let alone a 4300 lb pig built on an oversized sedan chassis.
