Dodge isn't providing any performance estimates for the Super Charger, but we imagine it must be quite a chore just to get those 1,000 horsepower and 950 pound-feet of torque to the ground.

The Super Charger's Hellephant 426 Mopar crate motor will be available for sale next year.

Dodge's 1968 Super Charger is powered by the company's new 426-inch supercharged crate motor, the Hellephant.

Fiberglass flares give the Super Charger 4 inches of width on its stock counterpart.

The wheelbase has been stretched a further 2 inches to give this B-Body new proportions, too.

The Super Charger features a Dodge Viper steering wheel, a roll gauge,  unique trim and a full slate of Mopar gauges.

This is one of the coolest features of the Super Charger -- those round forms aren't tail lamps, they're rerouted pipes finished in 5-inch round gloss black exhaust tips borrowed from the Alfa Romeo Stelvio.

The actual rear lights are LED units that are recessed behind the surrounding panel.

The concept maintains the second-generation Charger's fabled flying buttresses, which are painted here in De Grigio Grey Metallic.

The Super Charger features a phantom-style front end with headlamps borrowed from a modern SRT Challenger Hellcat, as well as a hood scoop from the Dodge Demon.

In addition to the wheel flares, in profile, other custom touches including shaved door handles, unique wheels and single-piece side glass are evident.

Dodge didn't pull an old Charger out of its collection for this project, it bought a car off the internet and gutted it before building it up into the Super Charger.
