Challenger Hellcat X Flies Past 707 HP

Over the past few days, a handful of images have arrived online showing the Dodge Challenger Hellcat X and while limited initial details are leading some people to believe that this is some sort of next generation Dodge offering – it is actually a one-off built as part of a charity raffle.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is the Hellcat X, and along with a custom 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T, the unique Mopar muscle car is a part of the 2015 Dream Giveaway. The Dream Giveaway program has been running since 2008 and in that time, they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charitable groups which range from veteran charities to children’s charities. In fact, the 2015 Dream Giveaway program is also offering up a pair of Corvettes and a pair of Mustangs along with the pair of Challengers.
So, while the Hellcat X traveling around the internet isn’t a look at the next generation of the Dodge Challenger – it is still a very interesting custom muscle car with some serious upgrades.

First and foremost, the heart of the Hellcat X – and what has gotten the attention of so many people online – is that this Dodge Challenger features the factory supercharger and a pair of turbochargers. The folks at Walsh Motorsports took the standard Hellcat Challenger and fitted up a Hellion Power Systems twin turbo setup, which added a pair of 62mm turbos under the car, just behind the engine. This twin-charging system lifts the output from 707 horsepower and 650lb-ft of torque to 805 horsepower and 800lb-ft of torque.
Once the team had added an extra hundred horsepower and 150lb-ft of torque, they turned their attention to the styling of the Dodge Challenger, but since the Hellcat package adds so many unique cues on its own, the team went fairly light on exterior upgrades. Following in the aviation theme, raw aluminum accents were added to the three openings in the hood, around the front grille and on the lower rear diffuser, along with a new adjustable chin spoiler and rear deck lid spoiler – both of which help improve downforce at very high speeds.

Finally, the Hellcat X has custom badging on the fenders, the wheels and out back, with the Hellcat X logo embroidered on the seat back and floor mats.

So now that we all know that the Hellcat X isn’t some sort of factory experimental project from Dodge, Im sure that some of you are wondering how you can go about winning the Hellcat X. Ticket prices for this charity raffle begin at $3 apiece, but the more you buy, the less they cost. For example, their largest ticket package is $5,000 and that gets you 6,000 tickets and 6,000 chances to win both the Hellcat X and the gorgeous 1970 Challenger R/T .
