This gorgeous Go-Mango Challenger Hellcat is a desirable 6-speed manual model, putting all the horsepower in your hands—literally.

The Hellcat kicked in the door at the muscle car clubhouse and let everyone know that a new boss was in town. Until the 707-horsepower Hellcat showed up, automakers danced politely around the 500 horsepower mark, thinking it was sufficient. It probably would have been for a while, but the supercharged 6.2 liter HEMI V8 with fantastic manners and Herculean muscle, all backed by a factory warranty and all the creature comforts, proved that there’s still no substitute for raw horsepower. Since its introduction, there have been a few modest pokes at the Hellcat, including Dodge’s own Demon, but there are still exactly zero muscle cars on the market today that match the Hellcat’s combination of civility, performance, and value. It’s not only the nastiest brute on the street, but it’s shockingly affordable and easy to live with.

This gorgeous Go-Mango Challenger Hellcat is a desirable 6-speed manual model, putting all the horsepower in your hands—literally. It shows just 4912 miles from new, so it’s extremely fresh and despite the availability of a myriad of aftermarket up grades, this one remains 100% as the factory built it. It’s beautifully maintained, nicely preserved, and obviously has never been anything but a fair weather toy. And that’s exactly how you want to buy your Hellcat—easy living and no mods. The only notable deviation from stock spec are the SRT Hellcat graphics on the quarter panels, but those are decals that are easy to remove if you don’t like them—we debated but decided that they work well, look great, and make this particular Hellcat stand out in a crowd. It is otherwise unmarked, with almost no signs of use beyond a very small nick on the lower rocker that’s almost too small to photograph. Finish quality on these cars is decent from the factory, so the brilliant Go-Mango paint has a great shine and the body fits together rather well, although you surely realize that most of the money was spend on the hardware underneath, so it’s not perfect. A deep chin spoiler, some vents on the hood, and a black ducktail spoiler on the trunk lid set the Hellcat apart, as do a few small Hellcat emblems on the fenders and tail. LED lights give it a high-tech look and we’re pretty sure nobody’s going to mess with this car on the street.

Unlike a lot of the insane go-fast offerings from other manufacturers, the Hellcat comes only one way: loaded. Inside there’s a pair of extremely comfortable and supportive sport seats wrapped in charcoal leather with white stitching to add some contrast. Carbon-fiber accents on the dash and center console add a racy look, as does the multi-function steering wheel that looks like it would be at home in an F1 car. Two round dials flank a center screen that’s configurable to a dozen or more different read-outs, and the positioning of the controls says that Dodge was sweating the details when they were building a serious driver’s car. And with that 6-speed manual, you do need to take this car seriously, because with 707 horsepower on tap, things happen VERY fast. Pay attention and plan ahead, because it’s unlikely you’ve driven something on the streets that accelerates this brutally. The list of features is lengthy: ice cold A/C with automatic climate control, power windows, locks, seats, and mirrors, cruise control, rear defrost, a tilt wheel, and a rather impressive entertainment system with a touch screen, navigation, and a back-up camera. The only way Chevy could get a car to go faster than this was to take all that stuff out, but remarkably, the Hellcat delivers luxury with its hellacious performance. There’s even a good-sized trunk out back.

That’s all nice, but the reason the Hellcat is a game-changer lives under the hood: a 6.2 liter supercharged HEMI V8 cranking out 707 horsepower and 650 pounds of torque. Those are numbers that nobody could have imagined even 10 years ago, yet here they start instantly, idle perfectly, stay cool in traffic with the A/C cranking, and even pull down decent fuel economy if you’re not mashing the throttle all the time. Most of the magic happens thanks to the giant supercharger, which is housed in a massive aluminum housing on top of the engine and which is fed by its own separate cooling system. The 8-rib belt that spins it should be your first inclination that there’s some substantial boost on tap, and it’s so responsive that 100% of that boost is on tap faster than you can jam your foot onto the floor. Like I said, you need to pay attention when you’re driving this car because that much power does not forgive mistakes or arrogance. But used properly, there is no faster land-based missile save for Dodge’s own Demon, but your chances of meeting one of those on the street is pretty slim. This is still the apex predator. And as you can see in the photos, it is 100% stock and beautifully preserved in factory-fresh condition—it’s unlikely that this car has even seen rain more than a handful of times. For preservation it’s a slam-dunk, but even if you’re just looking for one to drive, the best place to start is one that hasn’t been messed with. This car certainly qualifies.

The 6-speed manual gearbox was standard equipment and really makes the Hellcat an involving experience. Launch it just off idle unless you want to make some expensive tire smoke and get the computer trying to reign in the fun. Once it’s hooked up, start shifting early because it revs so fast you’ll hit the limiter before you get your left foot on the floor. Yank the oversized cue ball of a shifter back to 2nd and hang on as the tires and traction control (you can turn it off, but I wouldn’t unless you have your NHRA competition license) fight it out. You get the point—the sucker is scary fast. There’s a reason these have what some estimate to be as much as a 30% attrition rate, and if you ever say, “Hey, watch this!” then you should expect to join them. It’s insane, it’s outrageously fun, but you’ve been warned-this is a loaded gun with a hair trigger. The suspension is competent enough, based on Mercedes-Benz components and engineering, and with street tires all the stuff between the flywheel and the contact patches should last virtually forever. Ride quality is firm but not annoying, making this a supercar you can drive every day, and those spectacular 14-inch Brembo disc brakes are certainly up to the task of stopping the Hellcat as competently as the HEMI accelerates it. The undercarriage is spotless and shows only the most minor signs of use and yes, this sucker is 100% emissions legal. That’s just insane! The satin finish 5-spoke alloys measure a whopping 20 inches in diameter and are fitted with 275/40/20 performance rubber that’s probably only temporary at best—you can imagine that this car has an appetite for tires. Fortunately, Chrysler put the same sized rubber fore and aft so you can rotate them to eke out a little extra life.

Documentation on this car includes the original window sticker (showing a purchase price of $65,290), all the original books and manuals, an upholstery care guide, and brochure.

The Hellcat is legit. It delivers on all the promises and the legend is not hype. It is a car that will always be able to entertain you, because it will always have more in it than you can get out of it, and if you’re at the top of your game, it is terrifyingly fast. On the street, it’s practically invincible yet rides so well and remains so comfortable that your significant other won’t complain about going for a drive in it. If that’s not a miracle, I don’t know what is. The Hellcat delivers and delivers big. Call today!
