Students Design The Dodge SRT Hellcat Of 2025

newhellcat1The Dodge Charger and Challenger Hellcats are undoubtedly inspirational, as well as aspirational, vehicles. This pair of 707 horsepower muscle cars has captured the attention and imaginations of millions of adoring, and often young fans. In an effort to curate the next generation of automotive designers, Fiat-Chrysler challenged U.S. high school students in grades 10-12 to design a Dodge SRT Hellcat for the year 2025.

2025-2“The Drive for Design contest continues to be a great way for the FCA US Design team to connect with students that show an interest in art and design,” says Mark Trostle, head of Dodge and SRT Design. “We always look forward to seeing each student’s creative perspective and hope to inspire them to explore automotive design as a potential career.”

The winning design, which you can see above, was submitted by Ben Treinen from Archbishop Moeller High School in Cincinnati, Ohio. Taking second place was a design by Harrison Kunselman of Mount de Sales Academy in Macon, Georgia, with Hwanseong Jang and Andrew Gombac taking third and fourth places, respectively.

All four winners will be recognized and awarded with prizes on Feb. 26 at the 64th annual Meguiar’s Detroit Autorama at Cobo Center in Detroit. The four winning sketches will remain on display in the Mopar booth at the Detroit Autorama Feb. 26-28. Prizes include Apple products, a three-week summer course at the College for Creative Studies (CCS) in Detroit, three passes to the Detroit Autorama, a three-day/two-night stay in Auburn Hills, Michigan, and dinner with members of the FCA US Design team.
