Dodge Hellephant Mopar Engine Price Set at $29,995

The very powerful, 1,000-horsepower Dodge Hellephant Mopar engine isn’t cheap.

The Dodge Hellephant Mopar engine was unveiled at last year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas and quickly became the talk of the town. With 1,000 horsepower and 950 pound-feet of torque, it’s the most powerful crate engine you can get from Mopar and is named after the Dodge Charger’s 426 “Elephant” V8 engine that was available from 1964 to 1971.

Compared with the 707-horsepower Hellcat engine or the 840-horsepower Demon create engine, the Hellephant is a pure monster and although it costs more than a base Dodge Challenger at $29,995 US, it will provide a level of performance that’s beyond 99 percent of the cars currently available on the market. The cost doesn’t include the Mopar “Hellephant” 426 Supercharged Mopar Crate HEMI Engine integration kit which will add another $2,265 to the final tab.

The kit makes the Hellephant an almost turnkey installation according to Mopar. Then engine itself uses a bulked-up displacement with a 4.0-inch stroke and 4.125-inch bore specs as well as a supercharger mounted on an all-aluminium block to achieve those phenomenal horsepower numbers.

The 1,000 horsepower means that this engine is more powerful than just about any production engine currently on sale with the exception of the Bugatti Chiron and the Koenigsegg Jesko. All of a sudden, $30,000 doesn’t seem so bad.
