The Missing Link : The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Could Happen

The Dodge Charger Hellcat is fun but a Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye would be more fun

  • This would be the final super-Charger version, assuming there’s only one Dodge Demon.
  • Like the Challenger Redeye, it’ll get a supercharged V8 good for 797-horsepower.

FCA’s Dodge brand continues to build the cars and SUVs enthusiasts want. The entire SRT division is dedicated to power, performance and styling and we love every vehicle that receives attention from them. This potentially final Hellcat car could be the last missing piece in the SRT puzzle: Is it the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye?

Dodge Demon Discontinued And There Will Never Be Another One

We say final as we assume that SRT has no plans to revive the Demon name for the Charger. Car and Driver has captured spy shots of what is clearly a wide-bodied Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat with a bloated and camo’d hood. This bonnet-bump likely exists to make room for the Redeye’s larger 2.7-litre supercharger.

In the event that the Hellcat and Redeye names do not ring any bells, here are the numbers: The Hellcats’ a 717-horsepower and 656 lb.-ft. of torque provided by a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 monster. The Redeye gets a larger charger and power climbs to 797-horsepower at 6,300 rpm and 707 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,500 rpm. With this kind of power, the Charger Redeye should be able to launch to 100km/h in under 4 seconds. It’ll also do big burnouts.

Secretly, we hope the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye won’t be the last new SRT vehicle with the supercharged 6.2-litre V8. We think there’s room for a Durango SRT Hellcat too!
