Now we can finally have the Viper Hellcat we've been dreaming of.
In case you hadn’t heard, Dodge’s 707-horsepower (527-kilowatt) Hellcat engine is one of the most powerful engines ever built. And among tuners, one of the most sought-after, too. Unfortunately, buyers don’t get a lot of choice in their pursuit of straight-line speed, with the Charger, Challenger, and Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk the only three vehicles available with the engine option.
But now FCA is offering the Hellcat with no strings (or car) attached. The supercharged crate motor made its debut this week at SEMA, and though it comes with a fully factory-backed warranty and seemingly no limitations, the automaker does suggest that it be used exclusively for classic restomod projects. Right. Here are the six cars, trucks, and minivans that we would turn into Hellcat-powered heathens.
