Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye
The heart of the new 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye
comes from the limited-production 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. With the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V-8, the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye cranks out 797 horsepower at 6,300 rpm and 707 lb.-ft. torque at 4,500 rpm mated to the quick-shifting TorqueFlite HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles.
Internal changes to the transmission in the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye include an upgraded torque converter. The Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye’s torque converter delivers an 18 percent increase in torque multiplication when compared with the standard Charger SRT Hellcat.
Like its Demon brethren, the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye’s engine has 25 major component upgrades, including a larger supercharger, strengthened connecting rods and pistons, high-speed valve train, fuel injection system and improved lubrication system.
The Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye is unmistakably Dodge, featuring the aggressive, planted Widebody, standard, with 3.5 inches of added width paired with its wider wheels and tires. New, wider 20-by-11-inch Lightweight Carbon Black wheels ride on wide Pirelli 305/35ZR20 tires. The Pirelli 305/35ZR20 all-season performance tires are standard; three-season tires are also available.
Beyond its menacing stance, the newly designed performance hood on the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye looks even more sinister and provides maximum air intake to the supercharged power plant from the functional hood scoop to boost power. This hood takes full advantage of the SRT Hellcat Redeye’s air intake system and is sealed to the air box.
The front fascia on the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye includes the mail-slot grille, providing for additional cool air to travel into the radiator to help maintain ideal operating temperature even in the hottest conditions. Side sills connect the front and rear fascias to help amplify the integrated design.
Dodge continues to push the limits of the world’s only four-door muscle car with results, including:
- World’s fastest mass-produced sedan with a top speed of 203 mph
- Quickest production Charger ever with a quarter-mile elapsed time (ET) of 10.6 seconds at 129 mph
- Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye runs 1.2 seconds faster than the Charger SRT Hellcat on a 2.1-mile road course, equal to about 7 car lengths after one lap
