Here’s a Hellcat Imperial Rendering, Because Why Not?

Starting with an old Chrysler 300 SRT, suzq044-chopartist applied the Hellcat treatment to the W211 Mercedes E-Class-underpinned four-door has-been, then some 1969 Imperial “Fuselage” aesthetics.

Wait, what? That’s the same question that popped up in my mind when I first saw the Hellcat Imperial rendering of the US-based female pixel artist. But would a Hellcat-ified Imperial be of any relevance in this day and age? In a far-fetched way, it would be.

FCA US LLC’s most upmarket brand is currently Chrysler. But a 2015 Chrysler 300 is not exactly what one might call... a luxurious full-size sedan. Heck, its underpinnings are taken from the Dodge Charger, yet you’re asked at least $31,395 for the Chrysler...

If it were my money, I would simply wait for April to come and the 2016 Cadillac CT6 to make its debut at the New York Auto Show. There’s an all-new for 2016 Lincoln MKS full-size sedan coming as well, but I’m having this gut feeling that it won’t be up to the task of competing with GM’s flagship luxobarge.

FCA US LLC could revive the Imperial luxury brand and the jaw-dropping “Fuselage look” design cues as well. Applied to the Chrysler 300 SRT, the full-width grille and those suicide doors look astonishing! I’m not going gaga over the gloss black alloy wheels, but I can’t deny that the Hellcat logo on the fender is fitting.

If Chrysler will ever make a proper flagship sedan again, it should have a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 with 707 HP and mountains of torque, full stop. That should keep the 2016 Cadillac CT6 on its toes...
