The Grand Prizes:The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is the most powerful production vehicle in American history. It served as the platform for the Hellcat X experimental concept in the giveaway. It’s the only one in the world. To learn the full story go to http://dreamgiveaway.com/
This extreme muscle car pays homage to the U.S. Navy turbocharged and supercharged prototype XF6F Hellcat fighter aircraft. The production version of this fighter, the F6F Hellcat, turned the war in the Pacific to America’s favor in World War II with a 19:1 kill ratio against enemy aircraft.
The Hellcat X features a fierce forced-induction setup—twin 62mm turbos and an Eaton 2.3L roots-style supercharger feeding a 6.2L Hemi engine. It’s backed by a factory Torqueflite 8-speed automatic with steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters.
Hellion Power Systems of Albuquerque, New Mexico, supplied the components for the extreme horsepower conversion. Walsh Motorsports in Wixom, Michigan, fabricated and installed the turbo setup. Hemi Tuner Performance of West Babylon, New York, in cooperation with Diablo Motorsport of Delray Beach, Florida, custom tuned the vehicle.
Performance estimates are not available at press time. For reference, the production Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat launches from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds, flies down the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds, and is capable of a 199-mph land speed.
Some of the unique features on the Hellcat X include aviation-inspired raw aluminum hood extractors, center hood scoop, accented front grille surround, hand-fabricated rear diffusor, and adjustable high-speed chin spoiler and deck lid spoiler.
The second half of the grand prize package is a 1970 Challenger R/T that starred in the “Revolution Reborn” TV commercial at: https://youtu.be/
The experts at Precision Images lovingly restored the iconic Challenger R/T to stock-appearing condition. Pre-eminent Mopar authority Dave Wise of MMC Detroit personally inspected the vehicle for authenticity and correctness and issued The Wise Vehicle Inspection Report.
