This modified Dodge Viper SRT Convertible is called Baptized Medusa and is the fruit of labour from a heavy-duty chain saw and Prefix Performance. Based on one of a very limited 10-vehicle production run, the Medusa’s least expensive modification package costs $35,000 ( 20,492.82). You’ll have to pay extra for every other bespoke option.

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Could be Limited to 1,200 Units

Production of the insanely powerful 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat may be limited to only 1,200 units. That’s the word from Edmunds, citing a Chrysler Group person that did not want to be identified. Although the automaker has yet to confirm the said number, we won’t be surprised if this report turns out to be true. And for more than one reason.

First of all, it’s only natural for such a powerful machine to come available in limited quantities. The Hellcat is no regular Challenger and we don’t expect Dodge to keep it in production until the current generation model is phased out. At least not as a regular production car. Selling 1,200 examples each year for the next two to three years would make more sense. Sure, demand will surpass production and Dodge will have a lot of unhappy customers to deal with, but that’s what makes a muscle car like the Hellcat special.

Secondly, a limited run would bring more bad news to customers. As Hellcats will start disappearing from dealer preorder “lots,” the $60,990 sticker (delivery included) will blow through the roof. Dealers win, Dodge wins, and customers will just have to fork more cash for the privilege of owning 707 horses and 650 pound-feet of torque in the shape of a Challenger.

Dodge Journey

Dodge’s attempt to re-inject some life to the Journey looks to have paid off with the 2013 model. Although that’s not much of a stretch, given the mediocrity that plagued its past iterations, you have to give credit to Dodge for giving the Journey all the necessary tools – and then some – to be able to properly compete against a competitive market segment.

So, yeah, the 2013 Journey is a lot better than its past namesakes and while it still can’t be considered a “class-leader,” it’s made huge enough strides to be treated with respect and attention.

The 2013 Journey’s reasonably sporty feel, combined with impressive looks and refined interior makes it an SUV worth your time and money. And, oh by the way, it now comes with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that produces arguably one of the highest outputs of any SUV in its class.

For those looking to have a family-friendly SUV with a hidden thirst for power lurking underneath, the 2013 Journey is as good a choice as any.
