    Spying: Hellcat V8 Makes An Appearance

    We've been hearing the rumors of Chrysler's new Hellcat supercharged V8 engine for the past few months, and now got our first sight on it. Autoblog published pictures of a Dodge Challenger SRT8 mule running around with the supposed supercharged V8.

    One of the shots show a blower sitting atop the engine, possibly a 6.2L HEMI V8 according to earlier reports. Power output is projected to be around 640 horsepower. The mule also features some changes, most notably a larger air intake and what appears to be a split grille.

    Interesting look for what might seem to be the supercharger. In the pictures it looks like the drivers side port on the hood is the functional scoop to ram air into the supercharger as it looks like a chrome plug is in the hood scoop on the passenger side.
