What happens when designers and engineers are unleashed? Fiat-Chrysler asked their team at MOPAR Performance to put a modern twist on a 1968 Dodge Charger. Digging into the Challenger Hellcat‘s inventory yielded modern accessories and an evil demeanor. The “Super Charger” has a modern interior with unique logos found throughout. Built for SEMA, the “Hellephant” can be found on the fuel filler, steering wheel, and other areas as hidden Easter eggs.
The significance of the logo is the beast under the hood. Using the supercharger from the Dodge Demon, they have pushed the legendary 426 HEMI to 1,000 horsepower. This 7-liter monster is a modern interpretation of the Mopar V8 that was banned by NASCAR for winning every weekend. The car might be a concept, but the engine and its controls are now for sale. The Hellephant crate engine arrives with all the electronics including O2 sensors, a gas pedal, and the complete Can-Bus system. Designed for use with the Challenger’s stock six-speed manual transmission, you will have 950 lb-ft of torque at your command. If your slant-six or 440 is tired, send it to the crusher and head over to cratehemi.com for all the details.
