Final Dodge Last Call Teaser Introduces 2,538 PSI Of Something To The Hemi V8

Teaser / 9 Comments

The question is whether the last Hemi-powered muscle car from Dodge can handle all the pressure.

Dodge has released the final teaser video for the final Last Call model before its official debut on Saturday at the Dodge Last Call Powered by Roadkill Nights Vegas one-day performance festival. We're expecting it to be a Dodge Challenger and not the more family-friendly Charger.

This teaser shows the now-familiar leprechaun with yellow eyes jackhammering a bunch of golden balls. The video is attached below; we want you to know it's safe for work. As before, there are a few clues in the video, and you only need to look a bit closer to find them.

The golden orbs allude to the higher-octane fuel, which Dodge teased in the very first video. It's this go-juice that transformed the friendly leprechaun into the possessed creature you see below.


The second clue is the V8-powered jackhammer. While we've always known the halo Last Call model would have a supercharged V8 engine, this is the first time it's officially confirmed. Another teaser video suggests the familiar supercharged 6.2-liter V8 will run additional boost pressure.

That would make it fast enough to reach the teased top speed of 215 mph.

Finally, we have a readout on the jackhammer, displaying "2538 PSI." The PSI rules out the power output figure. Not even Dodge is bonkers enough to sell a production car with 2,500 horsepower. PSI refers to pounds per square inch, and it measures pressure in a vacuum.


When we're talking about pressure, it could refer to several things. It could be 25.38 PSI of boost. The famous Dodge Demon used a 2.7-liter supercharger, increasing the boost pressure to 14.4 PSI. Theoretically, it's possible to increase the boost pressure by that much, but Dodge would have to make suitable upgrades to keep the engine from blowing up. The fact that Dodge's prototype models kept blowing their engines up lends credence to this theory.

Other theories in the video's comments include 2,538 PSI of direct injection pressure or the maximum pressure the cast-iron block can handle.

Whatever the case may be, we're sure Dodge will not disappoint. The Dodge Leprechaun (name unconfirmed) is the final Last Call model, a series of seven cars celebrating the V8 before its untimely demise. Nothing short of the most powerful V8 ever produced by Dodge will do, which means it has to beat the Demon's 840 hp output, and the 1,000 hp produced by the Hellephant crate motor.
