It was only 3 months ago that Dodge got it 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat with 719 PS & 654 NM strong V8 presented to the world public and the American tuner Hennessey Performance comes around the corner with a huge increase in performance. While the German competition in the form of BMW M X5, Mercedes GLE 63 S. or Audi RS Q8 Trembling before a factory Durango SRT, a performance-enhanced variant is almost frightening. Especially if it comes from the performance tuner Hennessey. As is well known, they have made it their mission to equip almost every model with at least 1.000 hp and so it is not surprising that after the Charger, The Challenger and the Jeep Trackhawk now also got the Durango.
+1.000 PS Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat
After all, they are all powered by the 6,2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 compressor, which Hennessy was one of the very first tuners to take on years ago. And since you don't have to reinvent the wheel in this case, it is of course easy to implement the existing experience in the 2021 model. The so-called HPE1000 kit is now available for another vehicle. It comes with the well-known 2,65 liter compressor system, with the high-flow catalytic converters, a compressor bypass valve, a special throttle valve adjustment, an upgrade of the belt pulley and the injection nozzles, HPE chip tuning software, a high-flow air intake system and various smaller ones Modifications now also in the Durango. The result mobilizes 1.012 hp at 6.500 rpm and an insane 1.314 Nm torque at 4.200 rpm. The sprint from 0 to 100 km / h should be reduced from 3,5 to 2,8 seconds and the quarter mile should be completed in just 10,8 seconds and at a speed of 203 km / h.
small HPE1000 logos and plaques all around
Although there is no information about the new top speed, well over 300 km / h shouldn't really be a problem insofar as the tires play along. Visually, however, one holds back. The currently only virtually modified copy shows itself with HPE1000 logos and badges and has an in-house wheel set in an estimated 21 inches. There is probably also a consecutive serial number in the cabin and a sticker in the engine compartment. Why? Because the HPE1000 variant for the Durango SRT Hellcat is only exact 50 x should be built! If we get more information about the changes, there will of course be an update for this report.
