Dodge produced the Demon 170, a street-legal drag-strip monster with 1025 horsepower, as a farewell gift for the current generation of the Challenger.
The 170 will only be produced in 3300 units, but its brawny 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 will have a lengthier production run.
On Tuesday, Dodge confirmed that the Hellephant C170, a crate version of the amazing engine found in the Demon 170, will continue to be produced.
In the first three months of 2024, the Hellephant C170 will be made available for purchase as a part of the Direct Connection performance components program offered by Dodge.
You'll need to use E85 fuel if you want to acquire the maximum 1025 horsepower and 945 lb-ft of torque from your engine.
However, even when running on regular gas, the C170 is still capable of producing 900 horsepower and 810 lb-ft of torque.
A larger supercharger, updated pistons, rods, and bearings, a new crankshaft, and a 105-mm throttle body are some of the upgrades that come standard on the C170.
Soon, Dodge will no longer provide muscle cars that come from the factory equipped with a V-8 engine.
It's a sad, but the fact that crate engines like this one exist shows that the Hemi is not even close to being extinct.
