There is nothing quite like driving a car equipped with a roaring fast engine. Unfortunately, most high-performance cars also come with a high price. That isn’t the case, however, if you choose the Dodge Challenger. For the 2019 model year, Dodge is releasing an even more powerful version of this iconic muscle car—the Challenger Hellcat Redeye.
The “Redeye” part of its name implies that is has been possessed by the Demon—a previous variant of the Challenger. Its Hellcat logo also sports red eyes.
This impressive beast is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that pumps out 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. It comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission along with an upgraded fuel injection system and stronger pistons. Dodge says this variant of the Challenger can race to 60 mph in about 3.4 seconds and runs the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds at 131 mph.
You can get all of this performance for right around $70,000. Compare that output to any other competing brand and you will likely find prices with six digits. The Challenger Hellcat Redeye is available as either a standard model or a Widebody version. The Widebody model adds wider tires and fender flares to give it more road grip.
Here at Gary Wood CDJR, we eagerly await the arrival of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye.
