This Hellcat Imperial could battle Europe’s best

by Patrick Rall on

The 707 horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is the world’s quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan, but for those ultra-wealthy horsepower junkies, cars like the BMW Alpina B7 or the Bentley Flying Spur are often favored for their larger, more luxurious interior. However, based on this rendering by suzq044, perhaps Chrysler could answer those demands for a large, super-premium luxury sedan with Hellcat power – making it considerably more powerful than anything in that segment today.

This new artwork from suzq044 is the modern take on the classic Chrysler Imperial, but with some of the Hellcat attitude and a touch of customization added. As you may be able to tell, the basic body lines are those of a 2005 Chrysler 300, but significant changes have been made to create this Imperial.

First, the wheelbase has been stretched significantly and larger suicide rear doors (similar to what is found on the Roll Royce Ghost) have been added, which is a clear indication that this Imperial has far more interior space than the Chrysler 300. Next, a unique front fascia with vintage styled hide-a-way headlights and been added, with a classic Imperial badge in the middle of the powerful looking grille.

Best of all, this Chrysler Imperial rendering has been fitted with the 707 horsepower Hellcat Hemi, so this particular Imperial wears the Hellcat logo on the fender along with SRT wheels (borrowed from the Grand Cherokee) with bright red Brembo brakes behind the sporty rollers. As an added touch of customization, this Imperial has been lowered a great deal, which we would never see from a production vehicle – but it definitely adds some cool factor to this artwork.

I should stress that this Chrysler Imperial is simply a piece of imaginative artwork by suzq044 (missing, among other things, side lights, and with an impractical ground clearance), but this shows that with a little work, the lines of the Chrysler 300 could be adapted to make a world class super sedan.
