Norman Kraus, commonly known as ‘Mr. Norm’ is famous for running the now defunct Grand Spaulding Dodge dealership in Chicago, Illinois. The dealership rose to fame in the 1960s and ‘70s for purveying high-performance muscle cars that they themselves had often bolted together with various Mopar parts – and now Mr. Norm’s back at it again.
As Hot Rod Magazine reports, Mr. Norm worked closely with supercharger company Kenne Bell to develop a supercharger kit for the Dodge Challenger SRT 392 HEMI. Mr. Norm and Kenne Bell then teamed up with Hurst to develop the new ‘GSS Supercat’ – a supercharged Challenger based on the 392 HEMI but with numerous aftermarket touches.
The Kenne Bell blower used in the GSS Supercat is a huge 2.8-liter unit, which along with some other minor engine upgrades helps boost output from 485 horsepower and 474 lb-ft of torque to 569 horsepower and 490 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels (about 665 flywheel horsepower).
Other than the engine upgrades, the GSS Supercat also boasts a Hurst shifter, a white and gold paint scheme, Hurst Stunner wheels, Hurts lowering springs and Bilstein shocks and reupholstered seating.
So what’ll it be, this, or a Hellcat?
