WR TV: 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat - POV Canyon Drive

October 02, 2014

Some days at work are better than others. Yearning for more seat time after our stint with the 707hp muscle car in Portland back in July, we happily accepted the red key at an event held where Kanan Road meets Mulholland Highway in the lovely hills of Malibu and headed out to the twisting stretches of picturesque road in this supercharged bruiser – here equipped with the Viper-derived six-speed manual transmission – with the Pacific Ocean as our backdrop. Some days, indeed.
Unlike our street drive on the back roads around Portland, this time around the roads were virtually devoid of traffic, giving the Hellcat a chance to properly stretch its legs and allowing us to evaluate its 0-60 mph and 60-0 mph manners, along with its handling behaviors on the undulating pavement of Mulholland Highway and the demanding corners found throughout. Enjoy:

If you still can’t get enough Hellcat, we’ve also included our street drive from the Portland event, as well as our track and drag strip tests of the coupe with both the manual and the 8-speed automatic gearboxes:
