It may not be the first Hellcat-powered Ram pickup, but the Hellfire Concept Truck created by Dallas Speed Shop and debuting at SEMA 2016 is certainly among the finest Ram builds we’ve seen.
Obviously, the most significant upgrade to the car has been the installation of the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine used by the Challenger and Charger Hellcat twins.
Even though the engine typically delivers 707 hp, Dallas Speed Shop didn’t think that was enough and bumped it up to 775 hp thanks to custom tuning and Kooks Long tube headers.
Elsewhere, DSS has installed its Hellfire Concept with a set of bespoke 22×11.5 inch Forgeline wheels painted bright red and wrapped in Continental rubber. Other changes include massive 8-piston calipers at the front and 4-piston stompers at the rear clamping down on carbon ceramic brake discs. There’s also a carbon fiber front splitter, carbon adjustable rear wing, prominent canards and flared wheel arches
Discussing the car, Mike White from Dallas Speed Shop said “The goal with this build was all about what ifs. What if the guys at Ram decided to build a regular cab with a Hellcat along the lines of the old Ford Lightning. That was a question we wanted to answer.”
The car will be revealed in full on November 1 live at SEMA.
