Hellcat-Powered Ram Pickup With 775HP Ready To Burn It Up At SEMA

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.

    FCA does not seem to worry about MPG like GM & Ford. The Hellcat, Hellfire and the Hemi Charger are just some of the models that FCA is selling, well maybe not the Hellfire, that isn’t so eco-friendly. FCA got rid of the Dart and the 200 and were going to build a Hellcat Pacifica van until Sergio came to his senses. Something tells me that without a big cash infusion FCA is going to be hurting, the vehicle platforms are too dated.
