Enthusiast decided not to wait for Chrysler and he built in his garage a high-performance version of the 300 model with a powerful Hellcat engine. To a speed of 233 km / h, the car accelerates in 10.11 seconds.

Engineers of the American company Chrysler thought about the “charged” performance of the model 300 in the summer of 2017. But in the end, the project was canceled, leaving the sedan without the powerful Hellcat engine from the Italian-American concern Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. According to the latest rumors, the automaker is even considering the possibility of completely abandoning the full-size sedan 300.

This car is based on the same platform as the Dodge Challenger / Charger, so installing the 6.2-liter Hellcat engine under its hood is a relatively simple task.

In its standard version, this engine produces 707 horsepower (881 Nm of torque). Currently, the most powerful version of Chrysler’s 300 model boasts “only” 470 hp. power and 637 Nm of torque. It is reported that an enthusiast who had thought of a substantial increase in the power of his car “screwed” two Hellion turbines to the motor, after which the “ceiling” of power was about 1,000 hp. For such high rates, the car needs to be filled with E85 gasoline.

A video was published on the YouTube channel TalonTSi97, which shows how the car is moving quite quickly along the lane – it accelerates to a speed of 233 km / h in 10.11 seconds. This figure is still slower than the Dodge Demon. To improve the dynamic characteristics, everything possible was removed from the construction of this specimen – now its weight is 1724 kg.
