Dedicated Hellcat-powered machines sometimes enter drag racing, but the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 is also firmly on many people’s imaginations, wondering what a 717-hp, 656-lb-ft power plant could turn out to be.
Chevrolet The Corvette probably isn’t the obvious choice, but the base Corvette Stingray is powered by an engine of the same capacity and shape, so that probably makes sense.
This Instagram model takes that idea to the extreme with a Corvette beast — the Hellvette, with the Dodge Hellcat engine pulsing far beneath it.
Helvet V3: Dodge’s worst Corvette engine ever
Richter_cgi’s idea here is simple: apply the latest rendering techniques and trends to a Corvette to create the third generation Chevrolet Corvette Stingray in the image of the Devil.
Carbon fiber is used to create a heavily modified GT1 style car, and the wide body and aerodynamic additions are complemented by a bold front splitter and large rear spoiler.
It’s still clearly based on the Corvette Stingray – the headlights and curve of the hood combine with the taillights to ensure that – but it’s more of a modified race car than a sports car or a horse car.
Modern offerings are plentiful in this digital daydream, with popular LED pixel lights and a suspended diffuser, along with heavy use of carbon fiber and plenty of extra air including a ceiling scoop.

Fastest Chevrolet Corvette in the West: Helvet V3
It’s black and cute and looks ready for high-speed racing, just like Le Mans. The render shows a legitimate-looking design that promises high-speed stability and performance, and with this engine, it should be fast.
Up front, there’s a large view of four turbochargers through the hood, so it looks like this is, in fact, the Hellcat four-turbocharged engine the viewer is suggesting. Bugatti is best known for bringing the 8-liter W16 four-turbocharged engine for the Veyron, but this compact engine seems all kinds of demons.
It might not be a reliable car, but we love the idea of the Hellvette – a slice of GT1 Le Mans inspired by the golden age of cars.
