What it’s also turned into is a battleground for domestic automakers, as well as a few import ones, to show how crazy they can get when they let their hair down, testing reaction to concepts with an eye to future production. So, while the consumer news at the Mopar booth is the new – and this is truly unreal – 1,000-horsepower 426 “Hellephant” HEMI crate engine, FCA may have a little more up its sleeves, too. First, that crazy engine. Thanks to its 4.125-inch bore and 4.000-inch stroke, it displaces a touch more than its namesake’s 426 cubic inches—427.65 cubes, in fact. For those not old-school enough to realize how gargantuan that is, it’s a whopping 7.0 litres of supercharged delight. The Mopar brand is stampeding into the 2018 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show with a brand-new HEMI®-engine-powered beast: the “Hellephant” 426 Supercharged Mopar Crate HEMI Engine, which turns the crank at a mammoth 1,000 horsepower and 950 lb.-ft. of torque. Said supercharger pumps out goodness-knows how many psi of power-inducting boost – Mopar isn’t currently saying how much – enough to also twist the crankshaft with 950 pound-feet of torque. Mopar says all this madness is transmitted to the rear wheels via a stock T-6060 manual six-speed Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat transmission.
