Hennessey Performance Donut Recipe: Dodge Hellcat & 1,000 Horsepower

Everybody has that “one friend” who chastises them for eating poorly. This might offend you, but we like Doughnuts. Not just the confectionery treat, we also like to see tires and pavement being punished. The same friend who extols the virtues of paleo food also drives a boring car. Life is too short to not enjoy all it has to offer, so Hennessey Performance have perfected the doughnut. The Dodge Challenger Hellcat comes with a 2.3 liter supercharger that allows the 6.2 liter V8 to make 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque at the engine.

While power of that level can sure spin a tire, you know it is capable of much more. After swapping the stock blower for a 4.5 liter and installing new exhaust, the Hellcat HPE1000 puts down 863 hp and 770 lb-ft of torque to the ground. This equates to around 1,000 horsepower at the engine because the automatic transmission becomes a hindrance at these power levels. We warned you about it last week. We told you not to listen with headphones, but you did it anyway. Now you are deaf & the HPE1000 offers no apologies. It shows up to a knife fight with a grenade launcher. It costs much less than dealers are charging for the new Dodge Demon, and it will run 9’s all day long. If you have a Challenger, Charger, or Hellcat, Hennessey will transform it into a killer.For more information click here and stay with us for all your Hennessey Performance updates.
