Hellcat Power Potential



What you're looking at is a 1000HP Dodge Challenger Hellcat with what appears to be a stock body.

It's been modified to push out a whopping 1000hp from the original 707 ponies. 871 hp is delivered to the rear wheels and it was a 850 lb-ft torque output.

There's an accompanying video too, listing out the mods that were made to the 2015 challenger Hellcat. It's sporting a E85 setup, supercharger pulley upgrade, catalytic converter delete and an ECU remap.

The aftermarket turned the Challenger into a beast that is no longer street legal thanks to the CAT Delete and the vehicle's reliability has probably been reduced but this does give us an idea of the TrackHawk's potential.

That's not bad, if that power is reliable and put down well on the street, I might not mind getting something similar done to the Jeep. Due to weight of the Jeep, demand for more power will still be their.

Hopefully we'll be able to see Hennessy Performance tackle this one like they did the SRT in 2007 with the SRT600 ?

That we should see, perfect time for them to do it when there's more and more people with the coin to drop on one. Surprisingly there are a lot of people into AMG SUV's that are open to going the domestic route, that's one thing American car makers do right, SUV's.

Definitely, as it is, the trackhawk will be a great competitor for the Bentley Bentayga sporting 650hp. Once Hennessy gets a hold of the trackhawk, it's pretty much game over until Lamborghini comes with the Urus... a battle between Hennessy and Underground Racing perhaps ?!

That would be an insane competition. You can definitely imagine two 1000+ whp suv's going at it ! I'm sure they'll be a great difference in price between the two though

Mansory just teased a Bentley Bentayga they've been working on, so that should get exciting especially as there's a market of people looking for SUV's like it with crazy power, just look at what Brabus does to already powerful AMG SUV's. Now it's all a matter of us waiting for what ever crazy number they were able to produce. Rivaling a (Brabus) AMG SUV is the best angle to take here.

Really hoping this takes over the whole hot hatch hype going on. The SUV game is getting insane and I love it. Mansory took the Flying Spur and upped it another 180-ish hp. So seeing what they can do with the already 650hp Bentayga would be very interesting.

There's even space in a lower segment for performance, a Hellcat Jeep CUV? Maybe their version of the GLA 45 AMG?

Seen spy shots of a new CUV from Jeep that's basically the Compass and the Patriot put together. But not too sure when that's coming out.
