Mopar 'Hellcrate' motor is 707 horsepower in a box

Mopar 'Hellcrate' motor is 707 horsepower in a box”

Offering an earth-moving 527kW (707hp) and 880Nm, the potent bent-eight brings to the table a 3.6 second 0-100km/h time and 320km/h speed ceiling when employed in the 2017kg Dodge Challenge Hellcat.

Like the motor used in the road-going Civic Type R, the crate motor develops 228kW of power at 6500rpm, and 400Nm of torque between 2500 and 4500rpm.

The 6.2-litre supercharged V8 has been buzzing motoring culture ever since it was introduced in 2015, with its mind-blowing 527kW/874Nm output.

If you can't wait for the SUV, or don't want a fast SUV and just want the engine, FCA is announcing the "Hellcrate" package.

In the USA, the entire Hellcat package retails for $A28,262, comprising $A25,406 for the engine alone.

Dubbed the "Hellcrate" motor, the 6.2-liter HEMI V8 is the first factory-backed supercharged engine from Mopar and is available right off the box with 717 PS and 880 Nm of torque.

The main lure is of course the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8, but it also comes with a separate engine kit with a powertrain control module, power distribution center, engine wiring harness, fuel pump control module, and a raft of other sensors and accessories that ensure the engine will be safely and efficiently hooked to the auto.

The Hellcrate will debut at the upcoming SEMA show in Las Vegas, showcased in a 1970 Plymouth Superbird exhibit. "This ultimate powertrain option fits the needs of owners and fans who demand iconic performance". It even comes with an accelerator pedal so you could set it up in your mancave if you wanted to.

As for the price, the Mopar Hellcrate Engine assembly is priced at $19,530 MSRP while the engine kit is asking for $2,195. Working on a project vehicle?
