Enthusiasts know the Dodge Challenger Hellcat produces 707 horsepower. It’s one of the modern muscle-car era’s iconic numbers. But for some, that’s not enough. Enter Hennessey Performance. The Texas tuners loaded the Hellcat with a twin-turbocharger that works with Dodge’s supercharger to boost output to 1,032 hp and 987 pound-feet of torque. Yes, that’s an engine dyno rating, not at the rear wheels, but still!
It’s a little more complicated than a bolt-on booster. Called the HPE1000, the turbo kit has stainless steel headers and down pipes, billet aluminum compressor wheels, and a high-flow air system. There’s also an an improved fuel pump, and the engine and chassis are specially calibrated. You also get numbered plaques signed by John Hennessey himself and the engine tech who builds your mill.
All of this helps get your Hellcat to 60 miles per hour in 2.7 seconds, and it can do the quarter mile in 9.9 seconds at 142 mph. The Hellcat and it’s 6.2-liter blown Hemi V8 are not for the faint of heart. Hennessey makes this Dodge downright demonic.
