Strong than Bugatti Veyron

Strong than Bugatti Veyron

Would Dodge realize that here in Europe we are trying to save the environment for hybrids and electric vehicles? Because designs such as Hellcat (717 hp from 6.2 liter V8) and Demon (851 hp from 6.2 liter V8) do not help at all with that. Not to mention this block of 1014 hp Hellephant.


It is a so-called ‘crate engine’. Of course we do not know the concept here, but in the United States many manufacturers offer different engines, with the necessary additives of course. It is very common there to hang a new eighth cylinder on the old Charger or Coronet. And it has not been overlooked by most horsepower.

Dodge’s newest ‘box engine’ is this Hellephant; 7.8 liter V8 with 1015 hp and 1288 Nm of torque. It uses a fuel with a rating of 93 octane. Which is special, because the Paradise engine needs 100 to reach its 851 horsepower. The Hellephant comes with, among other things, an engine management computer, all the necessary wiring and a speed-to-wire drive pedal.


It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. However, the so-called Hellcrate – in contrast, Dodge Hellcat’s 717 hp power source – already costs $ 19,350 (over 17,000 euros), so Hellephant will still have a few thousand dollars more than that. It will be available in the first quarter of 2019. In the United States of course, not here.
