TorqueNews talks a great deal about the world’s quickest Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcats, but the quickest modern Challengers on the street are not Hellcat cars and Todd Barber’s twin turbo Challenger R/T is a great example – running through the quarter mile in the mid 8-second range.

The world’s quickest Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is the Epling’s Garage manual transmission car, which has run a best time of 9.06, but there are street driven Challengers running in the 8-second range – they just aren’t Hellcat models. One street driven 8-second Dodge Challenger is Todd Barber’s Mopar muscle car, which has turned in a best time of 8.627 at 156.72 miles per hour.

I don’t know this Challenger ranks in terms of the quickest street driven modern Dodge muscle cars, but with the ability to reel off 8.6 quarter miles, this is one of the baddest modern Dodge Challengers.

Todd Barber’s Dodge Challenger R/T
The standard Dodge Challenger R/T delivers 375 horsepower and with a good driver, it will run a mid 13-second quarter mile. Todd Barber’s Challenger R/T regularly runs in the mid 8s and it is driven on the street, but there aren’t many mechanical similarities between the stock Challenger R/T and the one in the videos below.

Kenne Bell introduces a 4.7L Supercharger for the Hellcat Challenger and Charger

The folks at Kenne Bell have just rolled out their new 4.7L supercharger kit for the Hellcat-powered Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger, which with proper supporting modifications will double the stock output of the Mopar monsters – packing more than a thousand rear wheel horsepower “with ease”.

The supercharger experts at Kenne Bell were the first to offer big displacement, rear inlet systems for the Chrysler Group Hemi V8s in their 5.7L, 6.1L and 6.4L forms. The Kenne Bell 3.6L and 4.2L superchargers have allowed Mopar owners to make big power for years, but with their latest production introduction – Kenne Bell is looking to lift Hellcat horsepower to the next level.

Kenne Bell 4.7L Hellcat Supercharger

Today, Kenne Bell announced the biggest, most powerful supercharger ever offered for the Chrysler Hemi V8 with their new 4.7L unit. This blower was designed specifically for the 6.2L Hellcat Hemi and in swapping from the standard 2.4L IHI supercharger to the 4.7L Kenne Bell unit, the company believes that output levels could double. Granted, reaching 1,400 horsepower will require more than just a supercharger swap, but with the necessary supporting items, Kenne Bell expects that Hellcat Challenger and Charger owners will easily see more than 1,000 wheel horsepower.

Like all Kenne Bell superchargers, this new 4.7L unit is constructed from 100% T6 aluminum, which allows for optimal heat transfer and efficiency. Inside, the high flow rear inlet design works with the quartet of 6-lobe rotors and the patented BIGUN intercooler system to jam huge amounts of cooled air through the integrated intake manifold and into the Hellcat Hemi.

CA has filed for a trademark of the Cuda name, leading many people to believe that this is a guaranteed sign of a new muscle car coming in the future, but does this filing point towards a new model or is FCA just looking to protect one of its classic monikers? Reprinted from TorqueNews.com with permission. Story originally published under Cuda Trademark Filing: New Muscle Car or No Big Deal?

The Mopar gurus at Allpar discovered recently that back on June 16th, FCA filed for a trademark of the word “Cuda” for use on a passenger vehicle. This filing follows the company’s move to protect the name Barracuda for automotive use back in 2015 and together, these two trademark filings lead a great many people to believe that Dodge is working on a modern Barracuda or Cuda. Considering the fact that the original Barracuda (and Cuda) were from the now-defunct Plymouth brand, it seems unlikely that FCA would that model name to Dodge, but since there have long been rumors of a new Cuda – today we look at the possibilities behind the legal protection of the Cuda and Barracuda names.

The History of the Modern Cuda Rumors
The modern Dodge Challenger was introduced in concept form at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and just over a year later, the new Challenger debuted as a 2008 model year vehicle. Shortly after the 2006 Dodge Challenger Concept debuted in Detroit, rumors began traveling through the Mopar message boards that the company was working on a high performance model called the Cuda
