Mopar Celebrates 50 Years of the 426 HEMI
Throughout 2014, Mopar will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the iconic second generation (Gen II) 426 Race HEMI engine to motorsports competition and its eventual initiation to production vehicles.
To kick off the year-long commemoration of the legendary engine, Mopar has created a 50th anniversary logo. The design incorporates an elephant in reference to the engine's moniker, which resulted from the powerplant's imposing size, strength and power. The logo also features the trademark HEMI-orange color that covered the engine and made it even more recognizable.
Congrats, Mopar, on creating the greatest engine ever made!
