How About a 909HP Dodge Challenger?

This 909-horsepower Dodge Challenger will make SRT Demon owners jealous

  • More than likely, this most powerful ever Challenger will mark the end of the petrol-powered muscle car era.

  • This Challenger SRT Hellcat model will be able to run on E85 fuel.

The entire automotive community will celebrate, along with Dodge, the end of the modern muscle car era very soon. Why Dodge? Because they’ve embraced their seat at the head of the table among American automakers as the premier providers of muscle cars. Rumours have it that they are preparing a 909-horsepower version of the Challenger.

An SRT Hellcat Challenger, that is. Stellantis and Dodge will have a busy summer as they reveal many new models but between you and us, the supposedly final ultimate iteration of the beloved supercharged Hellcat 6.2-litre V8 engine.

While nothing’s yet official, rumours persist and they keep referring to 909 horsepower, or 69 more than the previously most powerful 840-horsepower Demon, as the Hellcat’s final output. The trick, as reported by Road & Track, is that this boosted V8 will be able to run on E85 (flex fuel). It is a mixture of ethanol and gasoline that provides more thermal efficiency which can increase output and lower fuel consumption.

Dodge Planning on an Electric Summer

Although, as we said, these are still rumours, we’re quite sure we’ll hear more about it in the coming weeks.
