Among the cars that make people talk, you can bet that anything sporting a Hellcat badge is going to be a vehicle that stirs the pot and starts a little bit of conversation. Whether it be for better or for worse, it just so happens to be a platform that has people debating back and forth over the strong and weak points of the car and just how far this thing is able to go on the drag strip.

As we have seen, the stock supercharger on these demonic kitties has been pushed pretty far. The fastest Hellcat in the country right now out of High Horse Performance in Delaware has burrowed its way deep into the 9-second range, almost stumbling into the 8s with a ported version of the stock supercharger.
This time, we take a look at another car out of HHP but the owner of this one has decided to take it in a different direction, replacing the factory supercharger with a 4.5 L positive displacement Whipple Superchargers unit. Now, this car isn’t the fastest in the world as of right now but, the results really do speak for themselves as the less modified car is still able to punch its way into the 9s on its maiden voyage!
Tune into the BigKleib34 video down below that takes you along for the ride when this whining monster steps up to the plate and hits it out of the park. If you’re a fan of the Hellcat, it’s going to be incredibly exciting to watch as these cars receive all kinds of aftermarket support from companies like Whipple. For now, sink your teeth into this juicy video that shows us one of the first of its kind.
