Western Australian Super Sedan racer Andy Kahle is building a radical new drag car with a great cause in mind.

This Mercedes CLK 320 is being turned into a full on drag racing machine, with Kahle recently opening the crate for a 6.2 litre supercharged Dodge Hellcat Hemi! The 700hp+ motor should make this one of the quickest Mercs in Australia.

Kahle said there is an important reason behind the build (which is taking place at Allfast Race Cars), besides outright speed.

"(Modified racer) Nick Gardiner came to me a couple of years back and said, 'Wouldn't it be great if we did a car to help make people aware and raise money for Breast Cancer Care WA, and what if we give passenger rides to patients and their families?' So, it happened," she said.

"It has been a long road, but it's taking shape. We have the 6.2 supercharged Hellcat to go in the front end and we will also be making the inside look as original as possible."
