That’s about $10,000 more than the currently available Hellcat engine, which makes 707 horsepower. You’ll also probably want to buy the available kit that comes with all the computers, wiring, sensors and throttle to run it, and that’s an extra $2,265. Putting things further into perspective, you can actually buy an entire new Dodge Challenger SXT V6 for $29,340. You’ll also still need to add other accessories if you want things like air conditioning, which Mopar is also happy to sell you.
What we’re saying is, this is a lot of money just for an engine. But on the other hand, this is a roughly plug-and-play engine with Bugatti Veyron power for the price of a V6 Challenger, so that’s pretty awesome. And you can put it into anything you have the skills or money to put it in. Plus, it should be able to make more power with higher-octane fuel. We can’t wait to see the swaps and builds.
