Dodge Challenger Hellcat + Willow Springs

The guys of /DRIVE hit some California turf behind the wheels of some of our favorite rides. They took a trip to Willow Springs International Raceway a while back in the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and it was epic. This one’s a little racing, a lot of history, and the best of Dodge. Check it out, right here:

The Mazda Miata…Hellcat?

Today we have an especially insane engine swap for you. This MX-5 Miata has been stuffed with a Dodge Hellcat V8-engine. The result? A whopping 685 horsepower. Sure, there might have been no assembly required for the engine, but you can see that there have been some adjustments made in order for the engine to work with the small frame of the Mazda. In any case, it’s working and the product is kind of amazing. Check out the video below for a live look, and get to know “Hell Kitty” a little bit better. Enjoy.
