Hellcat the World – Rhino XT

In the immortal words of Oprah Winfrey, you get a Hellcat, you get a Hellcat, everyone gets a Hellcat. The 707 HP Hellcat Hemi has become the motor of the moment, sprinkled on everything from old Dodge Darts to concept vehicles.

The Rhino XT is a heavily-modified Jeep Wrangler built by California’s US Specialty Vehicles (USSV). Inspiration came by way of an old Hummer concept that never got made.

 

Looking like a concept vehicle that escaped a show set the Rhino XT ended up joining “The Fate of the Furious” after crew members saw it at an auto show. Apparently G. F. Gary Gray liked it so much he ordered one for himself. (F. Gray is the movies director.)

The normal Rhino XT uses a hopped up version, they added a supercharger, of the stock Wranglers 3.6 V6. It makes it better than a Wrangler but still not very fast or furious. (God help me with that pun.)

The Hellcat Rhino XT is priced around $157,000, the base model starts at $85,000 and there is a 500 HP Hemi V8 version available.
