I looked up, the Challenger SRT/8 Hellcat yesterday on Motor Trend's website, it most likely won't go into production for the 2014 model year, but Dodge is seriously considering producing it, we'll probably see the Hellcat in local Chrysler dealerships within the next couple of years. I also read that may have up to 640 horsepower.

We need laptimes for the Hellcat, but I think the ZL1 would be faster around the track, too. It has a bit more power and is around 60 kg lighter. The only advantages the Challenger might have are better chassis, brakes, technic, etc.
