  • In photos: 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat inside and out

    This is my favourite retro-design (Dodge Challenger, not the Mitsu-built Challenger), probably because it’s the most accurate, right down to the 810-mm lift and 30-mm lean-in to load the trunk. Every lip, scoop, hood bulge and vent being functional, and matte-black forged wheels that don’t show (copious) brake dust help, too. Platform-sharing with 300 and Charger make this a big car, fully five metres long and 1.9 wide, just a few mm narrower than the original. Outward visibility is far better than the turret-roofline suggests (or a pre-2016 Camaro) and the LED treatment at both ends quite effective. Black chrome tailpipes and matte-black rear trim and spoiler finish it off well. Challenger’s 2015 cockpit is nicer than earlier versions, with better material feel and limits on the gloss and lipstick. It’s not too loud windows-up, and seat support—and heating and ventilation, are excellent, whether you’re on track or errands. Hellcat can be surprisingly docile for a ballistic missile, but the noise alone can scare the bejeebers out of everyone in a tunnel.
