The term Skat Pack is used to denote a special breed of cars that Dodge designed to cross a quarter-mile track in under 15 seconds. They had a pretty high pickup and acceleration, beating various sedans when it was first launched in the late 1960s. These cars are built with drag racing in mind, along with comfortable city rides.

When it comes to the stripes, these cars have iconic bee stripes that run from the back to front on the top. This makes this car like a GT racing sportscar you see in Need For Speed video games.

This provides a maximum speed of 203 mph or 326 kmph, which is pretty impressive for a coupe. However, this is as expected because Dodge created these cars to cover a quarter mile in less than 15 seconds.

If you drive around in the city, you can expect 14 mpg mileage on city roads, with highway mileage being around 23 mpg. These are pretty standard numbers for a muscle sedan in this price range.
