In 2014, Dodge stunned the auto industry by introducing the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Powered by a supercharged, 6.2-liter, Hemi V-8 rated at 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of twist, the Hellcat became an instant legend, as well as the most powerful and quickest factory-built muscle car ever. But while the Hellcat is the most menacing Challenger you can buy from a Dodge dealership, it’s no longer the most powerful muscle car to wear this devilish badge. This is where the Hellcat X comes in, a bespoke Challenger that took Dodge’s meanest muscle car up yet another notch.
The model in question was crafted by the folks over at Walsh Motorsport for an organization called Dream Giveaway. The Hellcat X is a one-off build and is being raffled for charity.
The muscle car is also a tribute to an experimental aircraft prototype built in the 1940s. Based on the iconic F6F Hellcat that ruled the skies in the later stages of World War II, it was dubbed XF6F and introduced supercharger and turbocharger technology to the Hellcat’s 18-cylinder powerplant. It was more powerful and faster than the standard 2,000-horsepower fighter it was based on, which is pretty much what the Challenger Hellcat X is in relation to the stock Hellcat.

Donating money to charities is always a good way to give back (and get a tax write-off, too), but the Friends of Chicago Chesed Fund have another reason to fork over your hard-earned money: a chance to win a 2015 Tesla Model S.
