Over 1000 PS in the Dodge RAM 1500 TRX from Hennessey!

Dodge installs its Hellcat V8 in almost anything that has four wheels. It all started with the Challenger Hellcat. This can now be found 6.2 liter compressor beast also in Charger, Durango and Jeep Cherokee Trackhawk. With the monumental RAM 1500 TRX (pronounced: “T-Rex”), the engine has recently also arrived in the pick-up world. Hennessey found its 712 PS obviously insufficient and has presented a limited special version. That listens to the name Hennessey Mammoth 1000 and makes a completely absurd 1026 hp! (The RAM 1500 in the AUTO BILD test!)

RAM 1500 for € 502 as a subscription at ViveLaCar

3.2 seconds to 100 km / h with a weight of three tons

The main reason for the increase in performance is a Compressor with a volume of 2.65 liters and changed translation. Revised intake and injection supply the engine with mixture. A special one Cooling system for the crankcase is intended to protect the engine from overheating. A stainless steel exhaust system with manifolds and sports catalytic converters directs the exhaust gases into the open. The effort results in insane numbers. Instead of 712 hp and 881 Nm of torque, the 6.2-liter V8 now delivers 1026 PS and insane 1314 Nm! A Bugatti Veyron “only” has 1001 hp and 1250 Nm. The three-tonne all-wheel drive pick-up sprints in 3.2 seconds from 0 to 97 km / h (60 mp / h). Incidentally, RAM already indicates the average consumption of the series TRX with a smooth 20 liters per 100 kilometers. You can only imagine what the Mammoth 1000 is indulging in. An off-road kit makes the pick-up even fitter for off-road use. Of the Mammoth is 6.4 inches higher than the series and has a level compensation on the front axle. 20 inch rims with large treads 35 inch tires dig through difficult terrain. Also part of the package are massive front and rear bumpers, LED spotlights at the front, electrically retractable running boards and an electric loading area cover.

There will be 200 copies

As expected, the mega truck is not cheap. Converted well 111,600 euros Hennessey demands for the beast, including a two-year or 40,000 kilometer guarantee. However, this is still significantly cheaper than a used Bugatti Veyron with less power. And the Mammoth 1000 is also more exclusive. Because Hennessey wants to only 200 copies to build!
