Hellcat the Chrysler Pacifica! Hellcat the Chrysler Pacifica!


For someone who’s supposed to act like a corporate flack, Fiat-Chrysler chief designer Ralph Gilles posts liberally to his Instagram account, from selfies with boss Sergio Marchionne to ratty old Eagle Visions and glowing comments about competitor vehicles. Now he’s uploaded something entirely different: A Hellcat Pacifica.

Seemingly bored while out at dinner Tuesday night, Gilles took a crayon to a paper place setting and sketched this stonking-mad minivan with a helmeted driver leaning inside. Yep, there’s huge wheels, a huger wing, gaping air intakes, and an imaginary 707-hp supercharged V-8 killing all traces of the Pacifica’s Pentastar V-6 (or its optional plug-in hybrid powertrain). Is this teaser part of Fiat-Chrysler’s secret plan to Hellcat All The Things? Is Marchionne one of the anonymous Instagram commenters using emojis? Can we please just have one? OK, fine. We’ll reminisce over Renault’s mid-engine Espace F1 and settle for a Hellcat Grand Cherokee, coming next year.

Thinking about #Hellcat #Pacifica 's at dinner tonight. Designers Crayons and brown paper like PBJ : )
