The shootout video, however, makes use of “Ain’t No Comin’ Down” by TEC & Maine Musik.

No wonder the initial run of Z/28s sold out before arriving at dealerships. Trouble is, Chevy also limited production to 500 units that first model year, which means lots of people missed the boat.

If you’ve ever had the opportunity to drive both a Hellcat (Charger or Challenger) and Jeep Wrangler, you can certainly appreciate each vehicle's individual capability. The Hellcat and its pavement-scorching 707 horsepower is scary fun and always good for a few smiles and close calls.
