The Dodge Charger Hellcat comes with 707 horsepower standard, which is enough to rocket the beast from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and with enough power and 650 lb-ft of torque from that 6.2 liter V-8 engine the standard hellcat tops out at 202 mph and hits the quarter mile in 11.0 seconds flat – it is also the quickest and most powerful stock sedan on the market today.
But in the world and words of mr. Hennessy, stock is never an option and 707 isn’t adequate. He turns up the dials to 805 horsepower for the Dodge Charger Hellcat Hennessey HPE800 and makes do with a couple of tweaks. The upgrades include tuning software, ECU upgrades, a less restrictive air-filter, a port-matched throttle body and an upgraded lower pulley to raise boost by 1-2 psi. Dodge already knew the Hellcats were capable of more power but decided to keep it conservative to allow for aftermarket upgrades.
To make things more interesting, Hennessey makes a more favorable charger with 852 horsepower on tap and you can purchase the Dodge Charger Hellcat Hennessey HPE850 package if 805 isn’t enough. The package sees the same upgrades, but with a ported supercharger housing this time.
Are you not impressed with the HPE800? Well, you can opt for the HPE850 instead if you’d prefer having 852 horsepower. The HPE850 package boasts the same upgrades as above but adds in a ported supercharger housing.
