1,300 RWHP Tuned Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Is a Bargain at $69,000

For the 2016 model year when the Challenger SRT Hellcat wasn’t available with the widebody option, the two-door muscle car used to rock a starting price of $65,190 and a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet (881 Nm) of torque at the crankshaft. This particular example, however, is on sale for $69,000 and produces an astounding 1,300 rear-wheel horsepower. Yes, that's the RWHP rating!

Listed on Facebook Marketplace with fewer than 2,700 miles (4,345 kilometers) on the odometer, the hellish kitty before your eyes is an 8.6-second strip slayer that tips the scales at approximately 4,600 pounds (2,087 kilograms). This incredible speed comes courtesy of a 6.6-liter powerplant from Gen3 Performance with a BES Racing block, a Bryant billet crankshaft, Carrilo billet rods, Mahle pistons, HPP head studs, ported cylinder heads, and many other upgrades such as the rather large aftermarket blower.

The 4.5-liter Whipple alone is $7,000 or thereabouts. Complemented by double fuel pumps from Walbro and 1700 fuel injectors, the street-legal monster further stands out with the help of a nitrous spray system hidden in the trunk. Shifting is the duty of an ATI TH400 automatic transmission with a manual valve body for racing, which can take up to 2,000 horsepower.

Two-step and trans-brake capabilities also need to be highlighted, along with a modified 9.0-inch rear end, Wilwood brake calipers and discs, and Viking coilovers. This one-of-a-kind build is also gifted with a carbon-fiber driveshaft, 3.40 gears, as well as a 35-spline Moser Wavetrac differential.

Not even the interior has escaped the owner’s thirst for speed, and the same can be said about the super-sticky drag radials at the rear end. The finishing touch comes in the form of a parachute, which is definitely useful when you cross the quarter-mile line at 160 miles per hour (257 kilometers per hour).

According to the owner, “partial trades" are welcome as well, but only as long as if the trade involves a Cummins-powered Mega or Crew Cab truck.
