We were sad to learn the Dodge Demon would be limited to 3,000 cars. It was a statement to the world that Fiat-Chrysler is committed to keeping the Muscle Car wars alive. It was only offered in 2018, so if you missed the opportunity, Dodge has something for you. The Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye makes use of many of the Demon’s parts. Unlike its predecessor, it arrives with sound insulation, carpet, and a full interior.
What it doesn’t have is the trans-brake and the race fuel system. The Redeye offers 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque, which is good for consistent 10-second times if you have the right rubber. If you don’t need that much power, the “normal” Hellcat has 717 hp, and the RT Scat Pack has 485 hp for under 40,000. Steve Beahm is a 32 year Dodge Veteran, and he allowed Jay Leno to experience the brutal Redeye in person. Tell us what you think of the latest from Dodge and stay with us for all your Mopar updates.
