As we all know, Dodge's mighty Hellcat engine was introduced in 2015 and has made it since then ex works in six different vehicles. But Stellantis will very likely pull the charged V8 out of traffic very soon, so that it will probably not be used in any other vehicle. Due to the Crate engine However, we will also find many other vehicles with the V8 supercharger in the future. Not from the factory, but from various tuners. For example a crazy one Dodge Power Wagon school bus. The vehicle went under the hammer in 2019 and is now listed for sale again on eBay. The bus is complete restauriert and converted into a Restomod vehicle. So there were others besides the engine modern components. And it has even become so professional that it was exhibited at the SEMA show at the time.

Chassis, brakes, exhaust - everything new!
And the vehicle also comes with a befitting one Bremsanlage with disc brakes all around, there is one modified power steering with a narrower translation, one Stainless-steel sport exhaust system and even specially made alloy wheels with 35 inch (0,89 m) tires are built in. Specially manufactured ones were installed in the interior Aluminum seats in the style of various hot rod vehicles and also a Sport steering wheel with 3 spokes can be seen.
The rest is typically minimalist. The fittings are almost non-existent because they are tiny, electrical helpers are rare and only the external ones Lighting one seems to have upgraded a bit. Still, this is one of the coolest vehicles we have seen in recent weeks.
