Hellcat drives the "Snake." Good review. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYa3dDjkFis

Lol br2, you just don't get it. I judge a "car" on how well it is as being a car. I judge a sportscar as being a sportscar, a supercar being a supercar just like how normal people do. The M3 is the better "car" because you can have friends, (woah) and I can fit my full sized keyboard, and have a lot of fun, yet not need another car.

Corvette is the better sportscar, obviously cuz it was purposely built for performance and 2 seats. But you'd have to buy another car too, maybe not you, but I have equipment and friends, so yeah I would need to.

And where I live, a parking space costs around 150k USD, I think a second car would be quite costly.

How about you Google that article instead? Actually, don't bother, I'll quote the relevant part here:

"Based on these expectations, the dyno printouts suggest our Z06 was producing more like 530 horses. But Chevy isn't alone underestimating the output of its hero motor: These figures show the Viper's V-10 also was good for 530 horses, and the GT's supercharged V-8 was pumping out at least 600 ponies."

Thank you for proving my point, good sir.

Google "2006 Ford GT vs. Z06 vs. Viper". Click on the MT site. You'll see the picture that shows drivetrain losses for all 3 cars.

It is big, But hey, You know what they say about a big boot.......Wait..

@hemisrt: Remember about a week ago when you said you don't believe manufacturers underrate their HP numbers. Well this Challenger Hellcat is listed at 707HP, and dynos a whopping 671HP to the ground. This car is definitely underrated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BZOcxQQC2M&feature=em-uploademail

@Coolshirt. Correct. The Vette (and muscle cars) work for average American's because they are practical. Once you get past HIGH purchase prices of Exotics, you also have HUGE insurance rates, MEGA maintenance/service costs. Replacement parts....forget it. The Vette can be repaired at most any good mech shop. Parts are reasonable. Insurance is low if you have a good record.

@BR2+: That's a big trunk.

As sports cars go, Corvettes have pretty much always been the most practical and easiest to live with. If anyone ever wonders why it's hard to get a rear weight bias in a 'Vette, look no further than that trunk; a bunch of empty space back there. Not complaining, I quite like it. I held off on putting a four-point roll bar in my C6Z for a long time, because it would effectively cut cargo room by over 1/3. The only drawbacks are the lack of a divider back there(that tiny lip ain't no divider), the lack of vertical space, and the heat(there's a reason they call the back a greenhouse). I won't deny that an M3 is a more practical car by nature, but a Corvette isn't an Exige or something; they're far from useless.

Oh baby hes got some sass on him! Girlfriennnnnnd!!!

Anywhoo, You judge which car is better by how big the boot is? lol

There are very few family here with less then 2 cars here, EVen if you didnt have a 2 seater you would still have a 2nd car regardless of the type, Its all in how one makes it. And a C7 has quite the sizeable boot.

Don't know why I'm replying to a obvious troll, but whatever.

2.7% drivetrain loss is impossible. Like, physically impossible with today's technology. There's not a transmission on this planet that's that efficient. And if there is, it damn sure wasn't in a $150k supercar from 2004, and it damn sure isn't in a $70k musclecar from Dodge. The Ford GT might be the most famously underrated cars of the modern age. Nearly every owner who dyno'd one came back with numbers suggesting over 600hp at the crank. They weren't isolated incidents; we're talking dozens of cars on dynos across the US. May not sound like much considering there are a few thousand FGTs out there, but consider how many owners ever bothered to put them on dynos. Not a whole lot, and *most* of the ones who did got numbers clearly indicating the car was significantly underrated from the factory. Of course Ford never admitted it, but everyone knows.

What?....You must be high, a C7 NOT as great as an M3/M4?



and you must be 12. Having a C7, you'd need a second car. you can't carry a 3rd person, you can't carry a keyboard or a guitar, let alone simple furniture or appliance. Very useless if you ask me for a "car"

Ford GT has 2.7% drivetrain loss. 535 whp/550 bhp

Well, unless we're looking at only 5% drivetrain loss(not possible), the Hellcat is underrated by quite a bit. That, or the car was taking in some cool, dense air, which superchargers absolutely love. Either way, beast of an engine.

Maybe he meant as an everyday car.

Wish it werent SuperCharged, Not a fan of that whine. Rather here that Turbo Shhhhhhsht sound or just Natural, Atleast for this car.

the C7 is an awesome sports car, but not a great car like the M3/4

.

What?....You must be high, a C7 NOT as great as an M3/M4?.....What you on? ? Mama Coca? Nose Pimp? Snow Sugar? Thelonious Skunk? Spanish Trammpoline? Romainian Werewolf? Mar Hoochie? Bloody Doodoo? Thunder Bush? Its gotta be something very strong to say that.

671.64hp @ the wheel. That's nearly 800 at the crank...
3.7s to 60mph
11.7s to the 1/4 mile. @125.4mph

Given the lower than expected price, and sheer insane power, 4 seats, a boot. I'm actually kinda won over. This car could be Dodge's savior. It's about the same price as a Corvette C7, and I think this is not only more desirable, it's also more practical. That being said, the C7 is an awesome sports car, but not a great car like the M3/4. The Hellcat is not as well rounded as an M3/4, but it's charismatic.

You are correct once again. I've always been a supporter of American Muscle. I also like the improvements that the big 3 have made in their cars. They all have become modern in so many ways...yet retained their brute character. I'd like to own all 3 if I could. Unfortunately, I'm currently limited to only one (unless I get rid of my tuner). Anyway, there are advantages/disadvantages to all 3 models. I prefer the large size/looks of the Challenger. It provides Americans a car that is well suited to their roads. Most of us are not "magazine racers." We live in the real suburban/interstate US driving world. And most of us cannot afford exotics.

I think too many people associate muscle car decent laptimes = good handling. There's a huge difference. Surely on a perfect run, being extremely smooth and careful on the steering and throttle, you can go through a corner decently and exit in decent shape. But when things go wrong, especially for inexperienced drivers, it goes really wrong. All that weight lugging around, you need to tip-toe around. While a light sports car, or even a well balanced and setup car can be much more forgiving.

There's the old saying... on the ultimate lap, car A may be faster than car B. But in an actual race over 20, 50 laps, car B will be faster, because car A will have to pull back and take less risks, or end up in a ditch.

And I agree... Camaros (especially z28) are moving if not already moved out of muscle car territory
