The Dodge Charger/Challenger Hellcat and Toyota Prius are on opposite ends of the spectrum in almost every measure, so naturally the mad scientists at American Racing Headers (ARH) decided to meld the two together to create this – the ‘PriuSRT8’.
This isn’t a back-yard swap, though, ARH took the time to fabricate an NHRA-approve tube chassis. That means you can look forward to seeing a Hellcat Prius hilariously takedown competitors at the drag strip, so get your GoPro cameras ready.
When it’s all said and done, this Hellcat Prius will have a 1000-horsepower, Whipple-supercharged 6.2-liter V8 under the hood matted to a Tremec Magnum six-speed transmission. To handle all that power, a custom Ford 9-inch rear was supplied by MidWest Chassis.
