The Dodge Challenger Hellcat was not powerful enough for John Hennessey. So, he built this- Hennessey Challenger Hellcat packing 1032 hp. Now, that’s more like it!
Dodge built the Challenger Hellcat so that it could handle 707 hp. Yet, it is not what you’d call civilized. Hennessey’s HPE1000 twin-turbo kit makes it even more outrageous. The bolt-on conversion is now offered by the famous tuners from Texas which includes stainless steel headers and downpipes, improved fuel pump along with engine and chassis calibration. The twin-turbochargers with billet aluminum compressor wheels and a high-flow air system bolt directly onto the supercharged HEMI V8 resulting in 1032 hp and 987 lb-ft of peak torque at the crank.
With so much horsepower, 0-60 mph acceleration times greatly depend on the how much traction the tires can cope with. According to the tuners, the Hennessey Challenger Hellcat hits 60 mph in 2.7 sec and crosses the quarter mile marker in 9.9 sec at 142 mph.
So, there you go. If you can’t settle for a stock 707 hp Hellcat, speak to John Hennessey right away and get your hands on a 1032 hp brute.
