    I don’t think those Durango’s are selling good. I’ve legit only seen one. Most I see are R/T with the appearance package

    1,000-HP DODGE 'HELLEPHANT' V8 TURNS CLASSIC CARS INTO MODERN MONSTERS
    Hell to the yes.

    and Mopar are bringing hypercar-levels of horsepower to classic American muscle with their 1,000-hp "Hellephant" V8.

    The new engine, revealed at the 2018 SEMA show in Las Vegas, is a 426 Supercharged Crate Hemi that uses parts from the 800-hp power plant in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.

    The name itself is a tribute to the legendary 426 Hemi engine, first introduced in 1964 and nicknamed the "elephant" for its power and size.

    Motor 1 has further details:

    As its name suggests, the Hellephant engine borrows most of its bones from the Dodge Hellcat motor.

    It's larger, with a cylinder bore of 4.0 inches and a stroke of 4.125 inches, and lighter thanks to its aluminum construction instead of the standard Hellcat's iron block

    The "Hellephant" was specifically designed for vehicles built prior to 1976. Mopar showcased its creation in a 1968 Dodge "Super Charger" Concept updated with a six-speed manual transmission, Hellcat wheels, a "De Grigio" grey metallic paint coat and a modern interior.

    "Our enthusiasts crave power and performance, and our new 'Hellephant' Mopar Crate HEMI engine and kit deliver huge horsepower and torque in a plug-and-play package that is unique in the industry," said Steve Beahm, Head of Parts & Service (Mopar) and Passenger Car Brands.


    "The 1968 Dodge Charger is one of the hottest classic cars, which is why we decided to use it as a starting point for the 'Super Charger' Concept. It's an amazing vehicle and a great showcase for our 'Hellephant' engine."

    Reports indicate that you can expect to spend upwards of $20,000 on the "Hellephant" when it drops next year. Take a closer look at its vessel, the Charger restomod, in the gallery above.

    Yes, Dodge Will Introduce A Charger SRT HELLCAT Redeye In 2020!
    Performance Brand Will Introduce Trio Of Performance Sedans...
    Mike Volkmann May 18, 2019




    Throughout the week, we have been seeing articles pop up around the internet talking about Dodge getting ready to drop the hammer on a HELLCAT Redeye version of their upcoming Charger Widebody. As you may recall, MoparInsiders.com was the first two announce there would be two versions of the upcoming Charger Widebody for the 2020 model year. While we have been sitting back reading, we can now confirm and shed some details about the third Widebody Charger for the upcoming model year.

    [​IMG]
    Charger SRT HELLCAT Redeye Design. (MoparInsiders).
    Yes, that is right. Dodge will indeed be putting the 797 horsepower and 707 lb.-ft. of torque supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 from the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT HELLCAT Redeye in its four-door muscle car. The Dodge brand will announce the three cars later this summer, according to our sources. The performance brand will be showcasing the new Charger Widebody models, very similar to what they did with the Challenger lineup in the 2019 model year.

    So what does this mean? Dodge will introduce an entirely new hood for the HELLCAT and HELLCAT Redeye. No dual-snorkel hood here, the Charger will get a larger center air intake with the hood extractors moving back further up the hood towards the windshield. R/T Scat Pack models will now get the current SRT HELLCAT hood as standard equipment for 2020. As we said before, the brand will also be featuring an option “SRT Performance Spoiler” like that on the Challenger offerings.

    We saw this spoiler on the Charger Widebody Concept shown at the SoCal Spring Fest event earlier this year. The dual five-spoke wheels shown on the Spring Fest concept will also make production in 2020 as well for HELLCAT and HELLCAT Redeye Widebody models. R/T Scat Pack Widebody models we are to believe will get the multi-spoke wheels that we showed you an earlier post.

    [​IMG]

    Not only will the Charger get the update in power from the Redeye engine, but thanks to the same cold air intake system featured on the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the Charger SRT HELLCAT and Charger SRT HELLCAT Widebody will get an official new power rating of 717 horsepower as well.

    Inside, its much of the same. The 2019 Dodge Charger SRT HELLCAT and HELLCAT Redeye models received minor updates with features like Line Lock and improved Launch Control settings. The widebody kit will add an additional 3.5-inches to the body width, while 20-inch x 11-inch wheels equipped with Pirelli PZero 305/35ZR20 tires and larger six-piston Brembo brakes will also be standard on every Widebody model.

    Wonder if they ever figured out how widespread the issue was with the Demon basically spitting out its rear axle.
