There’s good news for everyone who’s been prowling Copart for wrecked Dodge Hellcat Chargers and Challengers: Fiat Chrysler’s Mopar division just announced a new 6.2-liter supercharged crate engine kit called “Hellcrate.” Because every car deserves 707 horsepower.
There’s something perversely wonderful about this.
Citizens, be on high alert! We’ve just received word that certain brand-new Ram 1500 pickups that wear the Hemi badge might not actually have anything of the like under their hoods. A quick peek into the engine bay or a listen of the exhaust note should unmask these vile villains quickly.
This car started out as a bone-stock new Chevrolet Corvette. What it has become is a drag radial monster with a 4,000 horsepower twin-turbo Hemi good for 200 mph in 4.05 seconds.
The 2017 Ram Power Wagon was unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show on a hydraulic platform that showcased how much the truck could tilt. Impressed, or happier with the lift kit you’ve got on that rusty old Dakota?
I saw this on the Innovative, Banned, and Unique Racing Cars Facebook page, and it caught my attention like an unnoticed hand on a groin: a Messerschmitt KR200 microcar with a massive, brutal Hemi V8 engine crammed in it. Holy hell.
You can’t afford the Hellcat. You want more than the 5.7-liter R/T has to offer. Say hello to the Dodge Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker... if you can remember all of that.
There's a whole lot of dick-measuring happening right now on how half-ton trucks stack up on power, fuel economy, payload, and maximum towing capacity. Here's your guide to decoding what every US automaker's truck in this class is really putting down.
The Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcat are getting a lot of press these days. But what about Dodge’s other monsters? I was amazed by the 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack with it's 6.4L Hemi V8, 485 horsepower, and a starting price around $38K. So much car for so little dough... Patrick George had a dandy time…
I was on the first wave of the media drive for the 2015 Dodge Challenger, which included some seat time in the 707-horsepower Hellcat. I can't talk about driving impressions until Tuesday, but I can share some video that I shot for my job at Web2Carz.com.
The 2014 Dodge Durango R/T is a bit of a poor man's Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT— and that's exactly what makes it great. Sure, that 470-horse Jeep can dust a Durango off a stoplight but Dodge's "lite performance" SUV offers almost as much delightful rambunctiousness with a lot more usefulness for much less money.
One bid is all it can take at a car auction to end up owning a vehicle you may not exactly have planned to purchase. According to the seller of this 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird, that is exactly how he ended up the proud new owner of this rare Mopar at last month's Mecum Spring Classic.
It might look like an average 2007 Jeep SRT8 at first glance, but from the moment this twin turbo beast launches, it becomes very clear this one is anything but average.
One of the highlights of this past weekend's Fairfield County Concours d'Elegance in Westport, Conn., was a tribute to the Hemi engine. Yes, there were muscle cars, like a mean-looking 435-hp 1971 Plymouth GTX, but just a few yards away was another Hemi, sans car.
In 1965, with a shiny, gold streamliner they'd built in a shed — and four Hemi V8s — brothers Bill and Bob "Butch" Summers ended the longstanding British rule over the wheel-driven land-speed record. Bill Summers died last week at 75.
It's not from Germany and it doesn't have a flat four (or six), but this 1957 Tatra 603, nicknamed the "Communist Porsche", is rear engined, air cooled and very rare. Best of all, if you've always dreamt of a communist hot rod in your garage this Tatra is currently for sale on Ebay.
79 years ago this past week, Henry Ford unveiled the flathead V8 in a move that would change automotive history. The hype and legend of the 65 horsepower engine keeps the '32 Ford one of the most popular vintage hot rod platforms almost 8 decades later. Keeping in mind the fact a great engine can make an ordinary car…
