Pricing for the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat has been revealed. The new model will start at $80,995 plus a $1,495 destination charge. Taking into account the model's 710 horsepower, that's $116.18 per horsepower.

But, dealerships may mark it up even more. That's the "S" in manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP). The SUV will be a single-year offering.

There's some options that could drive the price up even higher. Dodge offers the model with dual-center exterior stripes, that cover the front and rear fascias, hood, portions of the roof, spoiler and the tailgate. Stripes are offered in five colors: black with Redline accent tracer, Bright Blue, Flame Red, Gunmetal Low Gloss (metallic finish) and Sterling Silver (metallic finish).

All-wheel drive is standard. Dodge is giving the model standard 20-inch machined faced wheels with mid-gloss black pockets. Pirelli Scorpion Zero 295/45ZR20 all-season performance tires are standard; Pirelli P-Zero 295/45ZR20 three-season tires are available.

At the heart of the Durango SRT Hellcat is a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine. It achieves 710 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission. There are seven drive modes – Auto, Sport, Track, Snow, Tow, Eco, and Valet.

According to Dodge's calculations, the Durango SRT Hellcat runs zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, covers the quarter-mile in 11.5 seconds, and has a top speed of 180 mph.

The SUV has a best-in-class 8,700-pound towing capacity.

Dodge has refreshed the design of the interior of the Durango for 2021. All models get new cockpit styling, instrument panel, center console, and front door uppers with new relocated seat memory switches.

The new 10.1-inch infotainment screen is angled toward the driver and run by FCA's new Uconnect 5 system. The center stack is slimmer than before and there are now chrome-accented toggles and dedicated buttons for heated and cooled seats.

SRT Hellcat Durangos get forged carbon fiber interior accents, red-accented gauges, standard heated and ventilated Nappa leather with suede front seats with an embroidered Hellcat logo (available Laguna leather interior in black/Demonic Red).

When it's in a competition, it's a winning streak of pink, yellow, and silver. This 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera MFI Safari Rally Car is headed to auction with the model set to cross the block during the Silverstone Auctions Race Retro Live Online Auction this spring.

The Tuthill Porsche 911 started its life in January 1975 as a relatively rare Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI Coupe. The models were only produced from 1974 to 1976 and were mechanically identical to the 1973 Carrera RS.

It was converted to a rally car in the early 1990s and campaigned extensively by legendary Irish driver, Billy Coleman. Coleman is Ireland's most successful motorsport rally driver—in 20 years of racing he has claimed 29 victories.

In 1998, the car was hired for The RAC Historic rally by Silverstone Auctions Managing Director, Nick Whale. Recognizing its power and prowess, Whale purchased the car and continued to race it, wining the 1999 Safety Devices Rally Challenge outright. It also won the British Historic Rally Championship held in 2000 over eight rounds, four tarmac and four gravel events.

The car was sold in May 2002 and rallied by new owners for the next decade. It would then be converted by Tuthills into a full house East African Safari spec rally car.

"We are thrilled to offer a car with such outstanding history and one that I have previously owned and won in, for our first sale of 2021," said Nick Whale, Silverstone Auctions Managing Director. "The 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera MFI Safari Rally Car really is a credit and privilege to offer in our tenth year as the official auction partner for Race Retro!"

The car has competed in and finished four East African Safari events. In 2017, the car took the top spot on the podium, winning it outright, with driver Ryan Champion behind the wheel.

This Porsche 911 was even selected by Porsche Club GB as one of 30 specially invited cars to attend as well as participating in Porsches 50th Birthday celebrations at Brands Hatch circuit in 2018.

The car comes with MSA papers and an FIA HTP.

The Tuthills modifications are valued at £40,000. Newly built cars today are around £300,000 plus VAT.
