Chrysler must be really getting into the Fast & Furious mind-set. Someone looked at the Challenger and asked for more power.
Rumor has gotten into the news today that Chrysler is developer a Hemi V-8 that is capable of 640 horsepower, putting it on the same level as the SRT Viper’s V-10.
The codename attached to this project is pretty cool, the Hellcat. The expectation is that this be debuted inside the 2015 Dodge Challenger and other vehicles after that.
As of right now, Chrysler is refusing to comment.
If this is indeed true, then it could be one last hurray for such a high-powered gas-guzzling engine. Federal regulations are increasing fuel economy and will lead to companies needing to focus on more fuel efficient vehicles. Enjoy it while it lasts.
