Every muscle car fan will have a passion and desire to watch the likes of a DodgeChallenger race around like the true power icon that it is. Luckily, on the Hennessey Performance YouTube channel, fans can watch a special 1,000 horsepower Dodge Challenger go for a test drive.

Watch this space and hold on tight as the power output is, edge of your seat, exciting.

Underneath The Hood

Jason Haynes, Director of Research and Development, at Hennessey Performance, takes this special Dodge Hellcat Super Stock HPE1000 around for a test drive and what viewers can see is pretty desirable. It isn't every day that a Challenger reaches the likes of 1,000 horsepower. With it being rarer than the Dodge Demon, it sure will make for a test drive that all muscle car fans will lust over.

The Demon and Super Stock do share the same transmission, engine, wheels, brakes, and driveline. However, the main difference is that the Demon comes with an additional ECM for an extra punch when it comes to racing. The Super Stock, with less than 200 built per year so far, offers a high-efficiency induction system, a 2.7-liter supercharger, and a little magic inside the ECM.

Enough of the technical stuff. People will want to know what the HPE1000 Hellcat Super Stock is capable of.

What The Super Stock Can Do

Not only is the Super Stock a comfortable everyday drive thanks to its reliable 18-inch wheels and overall styling. But, it can offer more than enough power and torque to make the muscle car the perfect companion for competitive drag racing.

When it comes to seeing what the Super Stock can do, Jason tunes the car to track mode and 1,800 rpm before setting off. Jason admits that the sensation after acceleration is unreal and after reaching 140 mph, which is top-tier for the track, Jason takes the Super Stock to discover its power potential. Jason finds the Super Stock has a consistent pull and never gives up. He finds that the car really is capable of 1,000 horsepower.

In summary, the special HPE1000 Hellcat Super Stock is a true beauty in the world of muscle cars. Although it has 1 horsepower less than the Demon, it makes for a unique experience with so few in production.
