Hellaphant engine, 7 special models.

“The final year of production will also be enhanced by six new ‘buzz’ models which will be detailed later. A seventh additional buzz model will be unveiled at SEMA, and Kuniskis says it’ll ‘go down in history’.
“Customers can’t order these buzz models” Kuniskis says. “They’re shipped to select dealers as a bonus above regular allocation. We’re building these ourselves, and sending them to dealers”.

Shrug that's what they said in 2008 with the 6400 limited edition SRT Challengers. Just proceed with caution.

sounds like a quantity of special builds that will fuel the auctions for a while, for those with the excessive means to throw crazy money around. Us little ol regular folk without unlimited budgets are basically screwed. I've already switched gears I guess by starting to accumulate parts and strategic inventory and maybe get lucky on finding the right gently used older model and maybe build something to my tastes...The only positive thing I heard was maybe they are finally going to loosen the reigns on the damn auto trans's, also the IHI blowers......headed for DC kits/sales?

True, but this is a different kind of "never"...

It just wouldn't surprise me if all this new stuff flops all of a sudden Hellcat or better gets re-announced. Couple years pass, new administration, who knows.

Crystal ball stuff, but these companies have lobbyists and could join forces with big oil. It's always about the money after all. My gut says EV is just the new shiny thing but I could be wrong.

we don't have to buy every new car that comes out. When the DA gets good I will run a time close to the fastest stock Demon with just a tune and pulley for way less money

I hope you’re right but I think it would take a lot to turn the ship around at this point. Lots of money already spent to eliminate ICE. Possibly it goes in a different direction then EV. Hydrogen or something like that? Who knows? I just can’t see them returning to ICE unless maybe there was some new amazing breakthrough technology.

Hellaphant...

Guessing based on the 1029 clue??

You may have it nailed Bull. Given the fact AJ has got 1150 hp on the DSR crate on pump 93, 1029 Hellephant from the factory on very limited production should be very doable?

Think stadium pricing. That’s the WTF look you get on your face when you’re at a sporting event and they tell you a beer’s $12. Now just apply that same concept to a Hellephant engined Challenger and you’re nearly at heart attack WTF😳
