THESE ARE THE 14 NEWEST MEMBERS OF THE 700-HP CLUB: AUTOS
When the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat showed up back in 2014, it shook the entire automotive industry with its unheard of 707 hp rating. Then Dodge announced plans to build a Charger Hellcat, as well. Not only could muscle car fans buy a Challenger with more than 700 hp for less than $70,000, but they could also buy a full-size sedan with the same engine.
Four years and one long-term Hellcat later, we were curious. Since the Hellcat twins went on sale, how many production cars have been introduced with at least 700 hp? To keep things simple, we decided not to count a car if fewer than 100 will ever be built. With that important caveat in place, here are the 14 newest members of the 700-hp club.
1 Aston Martin Valkyrie
We haven’t been able to test the Valkyrie yet, but anything built to drive like a barely street-legal Formula 1 car has to be awesome. It gets a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V-12 that makes more than 1,000 hp, easily earning its spot on this list. And with 150 Valkyries planned, it technically meets our production requirement.
