This Will Be Totally Irrelevant to 90% of The Readers Here, But It’s Still Cool as Hell

dodge-challenger-hellcat-blackMy dream car (or at least one of them) can now sport appropriately cool and matching license plates. Well, at least in the State of California they will now let you go totally retro on your choice of license plate. No more white non-descript ugly, but some seriously old school early to late 1960’s black and yellow license plates, that haven’t been seen on a new car in Cali since 1968.

All hail the new black six character license plate!

Black_PlatesIt matches perfectly a black Challenger. For those of you who care about the history of California license plates over the last several decades, you can refer to here for some post 1968 some nostalgia.

If I ever won the Lottery, I’d get an all black Dodge Challenger with the “Hellcat” motor option with a safe and sane “600-plus” horsepower (the manufacturer will not quote any more but it is suspected to be a bit higher) and ‘about’ 575 lb-ft of torque, just incase you ever decided to pull down a two-story ranch house, because now you can. Then I would import it to Europe and try to get deported from every single country in the EU for my driving habits. It would be worth it!

Hellcat-equipped SRT8s have two power modes, which are described as “street and kill”. I believe the street mode is just a little more powerful than the normal SRT (600 HP+). “Kill mode”, is something north of “clinically insane” at 700+ horsepower.

The Hellcat Challenger is EPA rated at 13 miles per gallon in the city, 22 mpg on the highway for a combined 16 mpg for the eight-speed automatic-transmission version. For the manual shifter, deduct 1 mpg on the highway.

Everybody needs a car with a switch marked “Kill Mode”.

    It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

  • I have been a car guy for a long time. I like them all. A Dodge Challenger Hellcat would not be my first choice. But I can understand why some would like it.

    Give me a 4 wheel drive Tesla with the big battery and “ludicrous mode” fuse and lets head to the track.

      Harder to go all “Vanishing Point” on one charge though.

      • That’s the best part about a Tesla. Hammer the accelerator all you want and it only costs a buck or so to top it off.
