Dodge Challenger received 1200 hp engineNovember 13, 2018
Atelier Hennessey offers a package of improvements for the already powerful Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.
First we want to note that the American coupe Dodge Challenger in the high-performance version of the SRT Hellcat Redeye is a very powerful car. But apparently for the guys from the American tuning studio Hennessey this seems insufficient.
That is why the HPE1200 power boost package was introduced. Note that earlier the HPE1000 “package” was proposed for the same car, after its installation, the standard engine of a sports car could boast a maximum of 1035 horsepower.
Thanks to the efforts of the engineers at Hennessey, the maximum power of the power plant was increased to an impressive 1200 hp.
According to the representatives of the studio, a similar figure can be achieved only when using a special racing fuel. In the rest of the time, the engine will be able to develop “only” 1013 hp (max torque will be 1293 Nm). All torque will be directed to the rear wheels.
The guys from Hennessey replaced the throttle, the exhaust manifolds are now made of stainless steel with high-speed catalytic converters, the fuel injector was also changed.
Finally, we note that under the hood of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is a powerful 6.0-liter V8, whose power is 797 hp, and the maximum torque is 989 Nm. The initial price for an American car is 71,350 dollars
Not so long ago, we wrote that the Dodge Challenger with a 6.2-liter engine was turned into a sleigh for Santa Claus.
