Dodge Launches a 797 Horsepower Challenger

An even more powerful Challenger By ,

Chelsea, Michigan. FCA's Dodge Division has unveiled the most powerful production car in its history, the 2018 SRT Hellcat Redeye Challenger. Under the (redesigned) hood of this wide body car is a 6-speed HEMI V8, 2.0-litre that generates 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque; allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 96 km-h in 3.4 seconds and run a 10.8-second quarter mile at a speed of 131 mph. The current Hellcat model now produces 717 horsepower. Also worth noting are the Pirelli 305 / 35ZR20 tires, and the aluminum hood with two air intakes reminiscent of those of the 1970 Dart Swinger. 

Production of the car begins this fall.
