The two impressive rides made by Dodge, the Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Charger SRT Hellcat are turning out to be extremely popular, taking the carmaker by surprise. With more than 9,000 orders received and only 2,200 units delivered so far, Dodge has decided to suspend any further orders for the two vehicles until the supply will catch up with the demand.

The Charger SRT Hellcat, equipped with drag tires, needs 2.9s to reach 60 mph (96 km/h) from a standstill and it can do a quarter mile in 11.0s, with a top speed of 204 mph. The Challenger SRT Hellcat will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), with normal tires, in less than 4 seconds and go up to 320 km/h (199 mph). Prices for the four-door model start at 63,995 USD and for the 2-door you will have to pay 60,000 USD.
