Do a sedan, which is typically use for ferrying family, needs to have lots of horsepower? Personally, I think a little more power wouldn’t hurt and it looks the folks over at Hennessey Performance are also on the same page because they just bumped the already powerful Dodge Charger Hellcat into the supercar’s realm with 825 horsepower. Slapped with HPE850 performance upgrade package, which includes a new ECU, high flow air filter element, lower pulley upgrade that increases the boost by 1-2 psi, port matched throttle body, and ported supercharger housing.

Note: Shown here is the lesser variant, the HPE700, but the body styling and all is the same

Visually, it retains the same elegantly aggressive look with bulging, sculpted hood and sides, but with some subtle hint of Hennessey’s touches (apart from the growling roar as it guns down the street), including Hennessey embroidered head rests, serial numbered dash plaque, serial numbered plaque in engine compartment and on the outside, Hennessey and HPE850 emblems.

As for the price, it is, of course, price on request.
