Hellcat under $60K?

by David Zatz on

Two sources have now told Allpar that the upcoming Hellcat Challenger will start at less than $60,000 (that is, $59,900 plus destination charge).

The price is lower than expected, for a car which outpowers and outraces Camaro ZL-1 ($57,760) and Mustang GT500 ($55,935), while providing superior accommodations for the driver and passengers.

Sprint times from 0-60 mph are believed to be in the 3.5 second region, while fuel economy is expected to be roughly 20 mpg on the EPA testing cycle, courtesy of the eight-speed automatic. While the NHRA-certified quarter-mile time of 11.2 seconds on stock street tires is the best of any muscle car ever recorded, insiders are already saying that owners are likely to get better times after modifying the car.

This information was provided to Allpar last week by multiple sources, and became public after being shown on images at autospies.com, after which it was repeated by jalopnik.com. Allpar has not received this information from embargoed or official sources.
