We see a resemblance between this animated Hellcat and the Dodge Tomahawk concept introduced back in 2003. As a brief reminder, that was a motorcycle concept powered by a Viper V10 mill. The thing was not road legal, nor was it intended to be ridden, as Dodge explained it was more of a mobile piece of art. Still, the visual connection is here.
Dodge might actually supercharge the ViperRumor has it that this was a hot summer for the Viper, with Chrysler taking delivery of supercharged V10 engines. Nothing is official, but it’s obivous these were intended for the supercar - by the way, the 6.2-liter Hellcat V8 doesn’t fit in the Viper’s engine bay.
Since the Hellcat brothers deliver 707 horses each, the Viper’s 640 hp output has lost some of its authority, even though nobody can take away its naturally aspirated virtues.
Now that Viper sales have jumped by 184 percent thanks to the new discounts, perhaps Chrysler is willing to make some efforts to keep this snake in the spotlights.
Once you get to drive a Viper, you realize just how extreme this supercar can be and we’d love to see a Hellviper.
