Could the Next Generation Dodge SRT Hellcat Look Like This?


Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) recently announced the winners of the 2016 Dodge SRT Hellcat design challenge. The contest is referred to as the Drive for Design program and this is the fourth year of this event. The focus of this year’s event was for high students in the the 10th to 12th grade to design a proposed Hellcat for 2025.

Four future designers were selected in the final round of the competition and they all received a very impressive prize package for their efforts. They will all attend a three-week long design course at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan this summer. They will also attend a diner with the members of the FCA Design team, receive three passes to the Detroit Autorama, and a two night stay at the Auburn Hills Hotel. The first place winner will receive an Apple Macbook Pro in addition to the basic prize package. The second, third, and fourth place contestants will receive an Apple iPad Pro and an Apple pencil as an additional bonus.

And the WINNERS are!

First Place: Ben Treinen from Cincinnati, Ohio who attends Archbishop Moeller High School. Ben created a unique rendering of a futuristic four-door concept for the 2025 Dodge SRT Hellcat.


Second Place:
Harrison Kunselman from Macon, Georgia who attends the the Mount de Sales Academy. Harrison was responsible for creating a hyper car design for his submission of what the 2025 Dodge SRT Hellcat should be based on.


Third Place:
Hwanseong Jang from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan who attends Bloomfield High School. Hwanseong’s vision of the 2025 Dodge SRT hellcat was a hyper car as well.


Fourth Place: Andrew Gombac from Wilmette, Illinois who attends the Loyola Academy. Andrew’s design seems to favor the supercar appearance.


A panel of judges composed of members of the Fiat Chrysler Design Team selected the winners of this contest. The concept of the Drive for Design contest is to discover new talent and these results confirm that it definitely works.

About Calvin Escobar

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.
