The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was a crazy model with its 840-horsepower engine, Dodge goes farther with an even more powerful engine.
The new engine size and power will blow you away and it’s being offered as a crate model. The engine made its debut at the SEMA show to give us a look at a concept that can be the engine for you to put under the hood of a car that you want to take to the track and show off.
Dodge Brought the Class and the Power
Attending the SEMA show this year gives us a look at the Dodge booth where the 1968 Dodge Super Charger Concept was put on display. This car is one that is being powered by an amazing new engine in a classic and customized body to give us a car that we would all love to build and drive. This amazing car is attractive, perfectly built, and ready to be taken on the track where it could compete and show off. The true secret to this car is found under the hood.
Under the hood of the 1968 Dodge Super Charger Concept model is a new 426 Hellephant crate engine. This new engine is able to offer a full 1,000 horsepower for the drive, and the car was customized to be able to handle this new crate engine under the hood. This car brings us a mix of the old and new with a stock T-6060 manual six-speed transmission that’s part of what we see in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Other Hellcat items that are part of this concept include the wheels, six-piston Brembo brakes, and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio five-inch exhaust tips that run through the tail lamp housings.
More Customization for this Car
This Charger features shaved door handles and drip rails, the front door vent windows have been replaced with one-piece side glass, and Mopar added a set of 1971 Duster side view mirrors for a more modern look to the car. There’s a lot of fiberglass bodywork that’s present in this car to allow it to look sleek and modern. The front splitter shows influence by the Demon and the custom rear spoiler is inspired by the modern version of the Charger R/T. This is a car that looks great and is certainly a fantastic place to show off the new crate engine we will all admire.
The Engine Can be Ordered
While you could take the ideas and looks from the Charger that was on display and apply them on your own, the concept model will not be offered. Instead, this was the place for Dodge to show off the Hellephant engine which will offer 1,000 horsepower and 950 lb.-ft. of torque to be one of the most powerful engines you can add to the project that you’re going to enjoy putting together for the drive that you want to experience when you head out on the road.
