Auburn Hills, Michigan - These are the top four entries in the 2015 Fiat Chrysler Auto ‘Drive for Design’ contest, in which US high-school students in grades 10-12 were challenged to design a Dodge SRT Hellcat for the year 2025.

Head of Dodge and SRT design Mark Trostle commented: “Drive for Design is a great way for the FCA US design team to connect with students that show an interest in art and design.

“We always look forward to seeing each entry’s creative perspective and hope to inspire them to explore automotive design as a potential career.”

Is this the sports car of the future?

The four student winners are: Ben Treinen in first place, Harrison Kunselman in second, Hwanseong Jang (3rd) and Andrew Gombac (4th).

They’ll be awarded their prizes - ranging from Apple products to a three-week summer course at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit - on 26 February during the annual Autorama expo at the Cobo Centre in Detroit.

The four winning sketches will remain on display in the Mopar booth at the Detroit Autorama from 26-28 February.
