What started as an April Fool’s gag was taken seriously by the brand because, hey, who wouldn’t want a 1,000 horsepower Charger powered by the Hellephant V8 crate engine? Torque output will be around 950 lb-ft. A heavy-duty Allison transmission routing power to the rear wheels will be standard. Hellephant production, initially limited to only 100 units priced at $29,995 a pop, will be re-launched, though in small batches once again; Dodge will only build 100 Ghouls priced at around $200,000 each.
A final figure is still being determined. Buyers will also have to pony up for the gas guzzler tax, but we doubt any of them will care. The regular Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, which now comes standard with the widebody treatment, will remain in production for the new model year.
