Thanks to the massive, supercharged 707 horsepower V8 in Dodge’s Challenger Hellcat, the just-announced Trackhawk will get to highway speeds from a standstill in 3.5 seconds. It’s all-wheel-drive, so putting power to the pavement (or, ostensibly, the dirt — though I can’t honestly recommend drag racing this thing off-road) isn’t an issue.

Paddle-shifters and an eight-speed automatic, Brembo brakes, huge exhaust tips, hood scoops and enough blatant badging to shame a Trump property — all in one very fast package. Because why wouldn’t you want an SUV that can outrun a Porsche? No official page for the Trackhawk exists on Jeep’s website, presumably because they’re too busy driving the thing like the madmen they are.
