Hellcat ordering suspended

by David Zatz on

According to reliable source oh2o, customers can no longer order the Hellcat Challenger or Charger, so that the factory can catch up on current orders.

The lines are expected to re-open — in August. If production increases or current orders are cancelled, that date could move forward.

Dodge Charger Hellcat

As reported earlier, demand for the 707-horsepower cars has been above Dodge’s expectations. Before production, sources told Allpar that the company only planned to make around 5,000 of the highly customized engines per year; the cars themselves have many unique parts which may also present bottlenecks.

The Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Dodge Charger Hellcat were both designed to be raced multiple times without cooling issues or power restrictions, which have helped them to compete on drag strips. The cars are docile in normal use but the large supercharger quickly pushes out record-setting quarter-mile times.
