Just after confirmation came that a Hellcat-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee is on the way, the possibility of a Chrysler Pacifica SRT Hellcat has surfaced thanks to FCA design boss Ralph Gilles.
While out at dinner recently, the designer drew up a quick sketch of how the all-new minivan could look if it were given the Hellcat treatment. The image was posted up on Gilles Instagram and let’s us into the mind of the designer who’s imagination clearly isn’t impeded by the improbable.
The sketch itself shows the Pacific with a custom bonnet incorporating two air intakes to feed the supercharger, an enlarged front grille and air intakes, massive wheels and a towering rear wing. For good measure, a racing driver can even be seen at the wheel.
Unless FCA completely loses its mind, there’s absolutely no chance such a car will see the light of day, particularly following the company’s delay on a number of new models.
While the idea of a 707 hp minivan is cool and reminds us of the Renault Escape F1, there’s simply no market for such a car.
If it were created, we’d take one in the new Plum Crazy paint.
