Hellcat. That two-syllable word represents tire-shredding horsepower to enthusiasts familiar with the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and Challenger SRT Hellcat. Those two American muscle cars, which are currently in production, boast a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 ripping out an astonishing 707 horsepower. It goes without saying that there is more power to the wheels than available grip — burnouts last as long as the tire tread.
Taking the stunning Hellcat formula one step ahead, we present conceptual work from the talented team over at Chris Doane Automotive LLC — the Chrysler Pacifica SRT Hellcat!
Fitted with a functional aero kit that reduces the drag coefficient, a lowered suspension, and wide wheels wrapped in sticky high-performance rubber, this 7-passenger minivan rivals private jets in terms of luxury and performance. If bystanders don’t see you coming, they will definitely hear you going as the roar from the twin-pipe exhaust belches out a tune like no other minivan.
Of course Chrysler hasn’t green-lighted the program. But what if they did? What if Chrysler offered an all-wheel drive tire-shredding family van that rocketed to 60 mph in 5 seconds flat and cornered as if on rails? Would you line up for one?
