Incorpora un sistema de sobrealimentación para el motor 6.2 V8, que incrementa su potencia hasta los 707 CV.

El día que los amantes de Mopar soñaban ha llegado. FCA Group ha presentado en el SEMA Show un kit de sobrealimentación para el propulsor 6,2 Hellcat V8, que incrementa su potencia hasta los 707 CV. Se denomina Hellcrate, y se comercializa en dos packs que, si se compran a la vez, incluyen una garantía de tres años sin límite de kilometraje

"Nunca antes se había ofrecido un kit aftermarket que incrementa la potencia hasta 707 CV, sobrealimentado y enviado directamente desde la fábrica. Estamos orgullosos de ser los primeros en ofrecer la solución que los entusiastas demandaban", ha asegurado Pietro Gorlier, máximo responsable de Mopar. "Este kit de potenciación está pensado para satisfacer las demandas de los propietarios que buscan un rendimiento único".

El gran beneficiado es, obviamente, el propulsor 6,2 V8 sobrealimentado. Ente los componentes más novedosos, se encuentran una nueva centralita electrónica y el cableado del motor, así como un nuevo módulo de control para la bomba de combustible y nuevos sensores de medición para el motor. Según FCA, este kit consigue extraer los 707 CV del motor para las unidades dotadas de una caja de cambios manual.

En el segundo kit, introducirá nuevos elementos auxiliares para el motor. Por ejemplo, se introduce un alternador de nueva factura y una bomba de dirección modificada, además de nuevos kit de tensores y de correas, pensados para adaptar el motor al aumento de potencia. Pero lo mejor es que este kit es compatible con "vehículos de calle y TT posteriores a 1976".

Por si te interesa, este kit tiene un precio 18.652 euros, de los cuales 1.884 corresponden a la electrónica. Así que no es precisamente económico. Para mostrar su rendimiento, FCA lo ha incorporado en una recreación de un Plymouth Superbird para el SEMA Show.

1970 Plymouth Superbird Tribute featuring Mopar “Hellcrate” HEMI Engine Kit
Mark Worman, star of Velocity’s Graveyard Carz vehicle restoration television show, helped Mopar introduce the brand’s 345 and 392 Crate HEMI Engine Kits last year at the SEMA Show. Worman returns to Las Vegas with a fresh new Mopar build, this time a 1970 Plymouth Superbird Tribute fueled by the plug and play capabilities of the new Mopar “Hellcrate” 6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMI Engine Kit.
 
A top Mopar enthusiast and brand ambassador, Worman and his Graveyard Carz team embarked on a faithful clone restoration of the Limelight Green Superbird, but decided to tweak the “Bird” to truly make it fly with 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.
 
To do so, Worman dropped in the Mopar “Hellcrate” HEMI Engine Kit and 6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMI Engine assembly in the Superbird clone. Power is put to the ground via a Tremec Magnum six-speed manual transmission kit. Engine accessory hardware components used in the build include the Front End Accessory Drive (FEAD) Kit.
 
Worman also sourced installation and restoration parts, such as the complete interior, dash assembly, exterior trim, wheels and wiring harnesses for the Superbird through Classic Industries, one of the largest, most trusted licensees of restoration and performance parts in the country. Last year at SEMA, Mopar announced a team-up with Classic Industries to provide web, technical and parts location assistance for enthusiasts seeking to restore their vintage Mopar rides.
