The ultimate dinosaur "conventional drive technologies“Probably the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Super Stock be. There is no hybrid or electric drive nonsense in that, but an insane fat engine in the form of one 818 PS and 959 NM strong 6,2 liter Hemi-V8 under the mighty bonnet. So Dodge actually does it 13 years after the market launch the flagship muscle car Mercedes W210 base to train even more performance. And the Challenger SRT Super Stock is even specially designed for the quarter mile. There was a revised chassis and countless drag racing ingredients as well as the Hellcat Redeye as the base vehicle and with it that too Wide body kit. Under the 4,45 centimeters of extensions sit special 18-inch model with 315/40 drag tires from Nitto, which are at the same time the only recognizable “Super Stock” feature. And there is one working behind the Alus Brembo brake system with four-piston calipers.
mighty 6,2 liter Hemi-V8
And actually you would think that the 6,2 liter Hemi-V8 with the 818 PS and the torque of a huge 959 Nm as well as nice gimmicks like one Air conditioning, which also cools the intake air by the way or the "Power chiller“From the demon, are more than enough. Thanks to the improved eight-speed automatic transmission and the new sport differential, it finally goes from 0 to 60 mph (97 km / h) in just a few minutes 3,25 seconds and at the same time is a limited one top speed (due to the factory tires) of 270 km / h in there.
But the American tuner Hennessey Performance puts a shovel on top again. In the form of HPE1000 upgrade, which in a similar configuration already has the Redeye, The Demon in the human body and facts about the "Normal" Hellcat fired. And now the upgrade is also available for the SRT Hellcat Super Stock. And the ingredients and the result are essentially the same. That means there is also a change to the Translation from the compressor, there is a revised one Exhaust System including manifold and of course the in-house HPE1000 software for the engine control unit.

If you build that HPE1000 Hellcat Super Stock Upgrade then receive one from 1.049 HP (1035 bhp) and insane 1.285 Nm torque. This puts a Bugatti EB 16.4 Veyron in the shade, which is known to deliver 1.001 hp and 1.250 Nm. However, the SRT Hellcat Super Stock only costs around € 70.000 in series production and with the HPE1000 package, the € 100.000 mark will probably not be reached for a long time. However, we do not know the exact price details. The price for a 14 year old Bugatti is at least 1 to 1,5 million euros. It is already clear to us that this comparison is of course somewhat lame.
