Hennessey’s Dodge Charger Hellcat tops 1,000 horsepower

Hennessey has introduced an HPE1000 tuning package for the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.

Matching the HPE1000 kit for the two-door Challenger, the Charger variant takes advantage of a triple-charged system. Hennessey engineers have added twin turbochargers to complement the existing supercharger, bringing output up to 1,032 horsepower and 987 lb-ft of torque (measured at the engine).

To handle the extra boost and keep the intake charge cool, the build includes an air-to-water intercooler system, new plumbing, larger fuel injectors, a high-flow fuel pump and new stainless-steel exhaust manifolds and downpipes.

Hennessey claims the HPE1000 Charger can launch to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds and complete a quarter-mile run in just 9.9 seconds at 142 mph.

The limited-edition Charger has been adorned with exterior unique badging, along with interior plaques signed by John Hennessey and an engine-compartment plaque signed by the lead technician. Buyers receive a one-year, 12,000 mile warranty.

The package is said to cost $55,000, plus the price of a Charger Hellcat. Hennessey also offers an HPE800 and HPE850 build.
