Las Vegas, Nevada - If you had loads of money to spare, what sort of custom car would you build?
Dodge answered this question at this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas with its 'Hellephant' powered 'Super Charger Concept' - a supercharged brute of a car with the heart of a modified Hellcat and the looks of a classic muscle machine.
The car features a 7-litre supercharged Mopar HEMI crate engine that spits out 746kW and 1288Nm of torque - which should be more than enough to please Vin Diesel and his buddies who like to live life a quarter mile at a time.
“Our enthusiasts crave power and performance and our new ‘Hellephant’ Mopar Crate HEMI engine and kit deliver huge horsepower and torque in a plug-and-play package that is unique in the industry,” says Steve Beahm, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar) and Passenger Car Brands, FCA - North America.
He says that the 1968 Dodge Charger is one of the hottest classic cars ever, which is why they decided to use it as a starting point for the ‘Super Charger’ Concept. "It’s an amazing vehicle and a great showcase for our ‘Hellephant’ engine.”
