Many of Dodge’s iconic muscle cars allow buyers the option of the 707-hp Hellcat engine. However, once you get that powerful, where do you go from there? Dodge hopes to answer this question by bringing in some creativity and inspiration from the younger generation with the Drive for Design Contest. Aimed at high school students from 10-12th grade, the contest challenges young and aspiring designers to design the 2025 Dodge SRT Hellcat.
The 2015-2016 contest entries were required to be submitted by January 8th, but the awards and prizes won’t be presented until the end of February. The judging panel, consisting of FCA Head of Design Ralph Gilles, Ram Truck and Mopar Head of Design Joe Dehner, and Dodge and SRT Head of Design Mark Trostle, will select four winners from the entries. First place receives an Apple Macbook Pro, while second, third, and fourth place takes home an Apple iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil.
The award ceremony for the Drive for Design Contest will be held in Auburn Hills, Michigan where the winners will be given a tour of Detroit Autorama, followed by an over-the-summer, three-week-long automotive design class for all four winners. Both trips will be all-expenses-paid by FCA.
