That, ladies and gents, is what we call progress. It's larger, with a cylinder bore of 4.0 inches and a stroke of 4.125 inches, and lighter thanks to its aluminum construction instead of the standard Hellcat's iron block. "It's an unbelievable vehicle and a great showcase for our "Hellephant" engine". You can stop rubbing your thighs now, suck, squeeze, bang, blow fans.

Dodge unveiled some big potential power at the 2018 SEMA Show with its brand-new HEMI®-engine-powered beast: the "Hellephant" 426 Supercharged Mopar Crate HEMI engine, which turns the crank at 1,000 horsepower and 950 lb. -ft. of torque.

Auto history buffs will remember the 426-cubic-inch (7.0-liter) V8 Chrysler introduced in 1964 earned the nickname Elephant.

The Hellephant's demonic pachyderm logo is a callout to both the Muscle Car-era Elephant 426 HEMI and FCA's more recent success with the Hellcat and Demon performance cars.

This could be quite the rodeo. The front wheels have been pushed forward two inches to accommodate the widened fenders and shorten the Charger's overhang, extending the classic's wheelbase from 117 inches to 119 inches. Then the body has dropped 2.5 inches at the rear and 3.5 inches up front while six-piston Brembos make sure they can stop 1,000bhp of go.

The Super Charger rides on 20-inch wheels at the front, and 21-inch rims at the rear.

As you can see, the famed '68 Charger's pop-up headlight design has been tweaked to include the modern Hellcat headlamps which hide behind the grille. To keep the streamlined look rolling, the front door vent windows have been put in the bin and swapped for one-piece of glass.
