Packing a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, this modern muscle car is a beast
While the Challenger SRT Demon is king of the Dodge’s performance car offering, those looking for a machine with less of a dragster focus might want to take note of the Hellcat Redeye. It uses many of the components from the Demon, but puts them into a more track-focused package. Restore A Muscle Car have a well specified example just waiting to find a new home.
This wide-bodied machine is the true embodiment of modern American muscle. Taking the standard Challenger and injecting it with pure testosterone, this mean machine packs 798hp from its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 heart. Combined with 707 lbs/ft of torque, 0-60mph can be compelled in a supercar shaming 3.4 seconds and it will hit a top speed in excess of 200mph — proof that there’s no replacement for displacement.
However, the Hellcat Redeye is about more than just straight-line performance. Its widened footprint allows for greater road holding through the bends, and its track tuned suspension keeps weight transfer under control — as does its adaptive dampers. In Track Mode this car aims to be far better suited to hot laps than any Demon.
Finished in a vivid shade of orange with contrasting black hood, roof, and trunk, this Hellcat is aggression distilled. Its additional bodywork over a standard Challenger not only looks great, but also reduces lift at speed. The black alloy wheels nestled within those swollen arches also host a distinctive set of orange brake calipers to complete the look.
The interior is upholstered in leather and features luxuries such as a power sunroof, Harmon Kardon sound system, contrasting red seatbelts, and Dodge’s latest U-Connect infotainment system with navigation. You get muscle car performance with all of the modern conveniences you’d expect in other cars.
$98,900 gets you 6.2-liters of American fury with just 52 miles on the clock!
