The Challenger Hellcat Red Eye can sprint from 0 to 60 in a mere 3.4 seconds and run the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds at 131 mph. Top speed is 203 mph. That’s thanks to its 6.2-liter supercharged V8. This engine also possesses the largest supercharger in a production car. With 2.7 liters, 14.5 psi, and a 6,500 rpm limit, this supercharger comes courtesy of the outgoing Challenger Demon. A TorqueFlite 8HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission is also standard.
