Some great news of success is ringing in from Chrysler as demand for the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Dodge Charger Hellcat has forced production to be doubled at FCA’s respective plants. It appears the concerns for fuel economy and excessive consumption aren’t as dead as the media portrays.

Click here for our original posts on the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.

More examples of the class-leading 707hp beasts will be produced at Chrysler’s plant in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, where the proper measures are being taken to ready more production capacity by September.

And although Chrysler will be ramping up production of the Hellcat twins, some customers are still having to wait for their examples as the reserve list is still quite extensive. But when you’re waiting for a rather special muscle car with a bespoke 6.2L supercharged HEMI V8, we’d understand the wait.
