Hellcat in a Box. Open Carefully!

Hellcat in a Box. Open Carefully!
Open the crate, hoist out the hell-kitty, drop into your hot rod and go, go, go.

That's the easy, breezy insane solution that the new 807-horsepower Mopar Hellcat Redeye crate engine offers for custom builders.

Now your great-grandma's Dodge Dart, your uncle's Plymouth Fury convertible, heck, even your next-door neighbor's Chrysler Cordoba with rich Corinthian leather can be upgraded to Hellcat power.

This super-kitty crate motor claws out all that horsepower (and 727 lb-ft of torque) without the need for race fuel. Just fill up on 91-octane or higher go-go juice and you're off to the races, literally.

Our friends over at Motor Authority state: "The basic engine assembly includes the supercharger, throttle body, fuel injectors, coil packs, water pump, front-sump oil pan, and flex plate. An optional Front End Accessory Drive Kit adds an alternator, power-steering pump, belt, pulleys, and mounting hardware."

The price is $21,807 and available at your local Dodge dealer.

We think that's a fairly reasonable price for all that power ... and the manufacturer warranty that goes with it.
