Taking the Red Eye – The 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Red Eye Will Soon Take Flight

Dodge unleashes the most powerful Hellcat Challenger yet! With 797 horsepower and 707 lb.-ft. of torque, the Challenger Hellcat Red Eye is now the quickest production muscle car ever produced.

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.

“With 840 horsepower, a 9.65 quarter-mile time and Guinness World Record certification that it’s the first production car to lift the wheels at launch, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon earned its place in the record books,” said Steve Beahm – Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA North America. “The Dodge Brothers would be proud that we’re leveraging the power and performance of this proven engine to bring a Demon-possessed Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye to an even wider high-performance enthusiast audience.”

The Challenger Hellcat Red Eye will sport the new dual-snorkel hood featured across the Challenger Hellcat lineup. In addition, the Challenger Red Eye will feature unique badging consisting of the Hellcat logo with red, jewel-like eyes.

The Challenger Hellcat Red Eye sports several unique interior features. A 220-mph speedometer, an SRT Hellcat Redeye logo splash screen, Light Black Chrome instrument badge, and the SRT Hellcat Red Eye logo on the key fobs.
