Apparently, the most recent Hellcat Redeye didn’t have enough power for the guys over at Hennessey, so, in traditional fashion, they decided to turn the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT into a behemoth of a car. With almost 400 more horsepower than the standard offering, Hennessey is once again laying claim to the throne of in-house tuning.
The Hellcat is more than just a beefed-up Challenger — it’s a 93-octane beast that sports a 6.2-liter V8 and a new 4.5-liter Supercharger, complete with NHRA legal roll cage, new headers, tuning, and even a parachute system. Alongside the 1,083 horsepower being produced by the engine, Hennessy has slapped on a new pully, upgrades to the original throttle body, and high-flow fuel injectors that should bring the monstrosity to around 1200 horsepower with 948 ft-lb of torque when tuned with their latest HPE1200 kit. We’re practically speechless.
