Melling Hellcat - more info
The Melling Hellcat was unveiled this week and it could be a Veyron-beater. It is powered by Melling’s stunningly powerful; four-turbo, 6-litre V10 producing 1,200bhp at 7,200rpm and a mind-bending 880lb-ft of torque. All that power is shifted through the rear wheels via a transaxle setup. The engine itself is milled from solid aluminium billets, and was originally slated to produce only 700bhp — but that’s not an unusual amount of power in today’s power-crazy automotive world so Melling upped the ante.
The car will weigh less than 1,200Kg and is said to reach 60mph from rest in 2.6 seconds. Expect it to cost under £200,000 ($390.000) and the first of the 20 cars Melling will build to be united with their new owners later this year.
