The expert car builders at SpeedKore bestowed this murdered-out 1970 Dodge Charger with more power than a Charger SRT Hellcat. It packs a 7.0L Hellephant 426 Hemi that makes 1000 hp and 950 lb-ft. of torque. Despite its retro looks, it has carbon fiber body panels, and its chassis has an integrated 14-point roll cage.
Dodge continues to cram its Hellcat V8 into more vehicles, this time bestowing the three-row Durango SUV with the 6.2-liter supercharged engine, making 710 hp and 645 lb-ft. of torque. It can launch from 0-to-60 in just 3.5 sec., and do a 1/4-mile in 11.5 sec on its way to a 180 mph top speed. Oh, and it can tow 8,700 pounds.

Check out our coverage on 95octane for all the details.
KarrMedia and VMP Performance worked to create and tune this tiny monster – an older model Mazda MX-5 Miata with a 707hp supercharged V8 Hellcat engine up front. They had to cut holes in the hood and firewall to make it fit, but connected to a 6-speed Tremec manual and a Ford 8.8 rear axle, it’s a bonkers little burnout machine.
The latest iteration of Dodge’s 707 hp supercharged V8 muscle sedan is 3.5″ wider, allowing for gigantic 305/35ZR20 tires to be wrapped around its 20″ x 11″ rims. That added grip makes it go around a 2.1 mile track 2.1 seconds faster than the prior Hellcat. It’s also got electric power steering for greater versatility.
We recently spent a week living with the ultimate all-purpose vehicle – a comfortable, tech-savvy, three-row family hauler that also happens to pack a 6.4L V8 HEMI, making 475 horsepower, launching the beast from 0-to-60 in 4.4 secs. Read our full review on 95octane.
We recently spent a day on the drag strip behind the wheel of the absolutely bonkers 840 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. We didn’t have the skills to get near its 9.65-second 1/4 mile record, but it still was the fastest accelerating car we’ve ever driven.
We spent a week living with this bonkers fast muscle car, done up in an eye-popping Yellow Jacket and black paint scheme. Despite rocking a 707 hp supercharged HEMI V8, its comfy interior and excellent adaptive suspension make it a shockingly good daily driver.
Because the 707hp Challenger Hellcat wasn’t enough, Dodge will offer their muscle car with an 840 hp supercharged V8, launching the beast from 0-to-60 in 2.3 seconds, running the 1/4-mile in 9.65 seconds, then driving home after popping wheelies at the drag strip.
An all-wheel drive version of Dodge’s hulking sports coupe. While its 305 hp V6 isn’t exactly a Hellcat engine, it should offer plenty of thrills, and an opportunity to enjoy one of America’s great muscle cars in the snow without just being stuck doing donuts.
One of the cooler builds at SEMA 2016, this 1971 Challenger combines classic style with modern performance. It rocks a brand new 392 Hemi V8 crate engine packing 485hp, a lowered suspension, and Hellcat brakes. We love the “Bitchin Black” paint and minimal red accents.
