Back in December, FCA challenged US high school students in grades 10 to 12 to imagine a Dodge SRT Hellcat from 2025, and today, it announced the winners.
Four design studies made it to the final round, with the first place going to Ben Treinen from Archbishop Moeller High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, for his impressive and professional looking four-door render of a future SRT Hellcat.
Second-place went to Harrison Kunselman of Mount de Sales Academy in Macon, Georgia, for his hyper-car-like proposal, while Hwanseong Jang of Bloomfield Hills High School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan came in third with a similar concept, and Andrew Gombac of Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Illinois, finished fourth.
“The Drive for Design contest continues to be a great way for the FCA US Design team to connect with students that show an interest in art and design,” commented Mark Trostle, Head of Dodge and SRT Design, FCA US LLC. “We always look forward to seeing each student’s creative perspective and hope to inspire them to explore automotive design as a potential career.”
FCA will recognize and award all four winners with prizes, including Apple products, a three-week summer course at Detroit’s College for Creative Studies (CCS), three passes to the Detroit Autorama, a three-day/two-night stay in Auburn Hills, Michigan, and dinner with members of the FCA US Design team, during the 64th annual Meguiar’s Detroit Autorama at Cobo Center in Detroit.
