These 3 models keep the supercharger legacy alive
Thanks to the downsizing trend, turbocharging has dominated in recent years, even so there are few manufacturers which have held true to supercharging

Thanks to the downsizing trend, turbocharging has dominated in recent years, even so there are few manufacturers which have held true to supercharging to fulfil their forced-induction needs. Despite the environmental and economical pressures placed upon automakers these days, there are a few stubborn engineers out there who have stuck to their principles and have kept superchargers in the fold of modern forced-induction. Quickly following high-powered naturally-aspirated engines, it seems that the era of the supercharger is soon to come to a close, with these cars doing their best to preserve the whining, belt-driven compressors.

 

 

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat- The price for it starts at $60,000 and produces 697bhp, the SRT leviathan might just be the greatest bang-for-your-buck car of all time. As if 6.2-litres of displacement wasn’t enough, Dodge added a supercharger into the mix, making it the most powerful stock muscle car ever produced. That 697bhp output plus 650lb ft of torque will propel the Hellcat to 60mph in 3.6 seconds and on to 199mph.

 

Chevrolet Corvette Z06- This model has developed into one of the most well respected sports cars on sale, it combines aggressive design with bone-shattering performance. The price of it starts at $80,000 and the hardcore Corvetter is the heartthrob of the American car community. Thanks to a 6.2 litre supercharged V8, the Z06 has been timed at three seconds to 60 mph thanks to its 650bhp output.

 

 

Jaguar F-Type- this model has been a stalwart of the supercharger for over 20 years, connecting root superchargers to its V8's since the 90s. The base F-Type uses a supercharged 3.0-litre V6 outputting 335bhp. It comes with a 5.0 litre supercharged V8 which throws out 567bhp.
