Dodge Challenger Scat Pack: A Half-Price Hellcat

The name isn’t great, even if it’s rooted in history. All is forgotten upon a press of the start button, however, because the Dodge Challenger Scat Pack is a ridiculously fun machine set at half-Hellcat pricing.

Under the hood is a 485-horspower 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine that enjoys ruining any relationship it may have had with its own rear tires. Inside is a cabin that is actually from the 21-st century. Outside is retro styling done right, with a clear nod to the past mixed with modern touches.

It’s not perfect, but that makes it even more of a muscle car, and that’s part of the reason that we love it.

Just know that everywhere you go is now a Smoking Zone…

    A new Hooniverse sticker idea. An outline of the Challenger above doing its burnout followed by the phrase, "Smoke 'em if you got 'em!"

    • No they used Scat Pack first in 1968, then stopped using it in 1971.

    My 2015 (which now has D-status and a VIN!) is this car's little brother, in a way… I'll have an R/T with the UConnect 8.4AN and the Super Track Pack, but I stuck with the 5.7 Hemi which has been a good mill in my 2010, and [trigger warning] am going from the 6-speed manual to the 8-speed automatic.
