No rest for a wicked, indeed.
Dodge continues to pull a opening pouch in 2019, regulating a high-performance engine travel credit to rouse a whole Challenger lineup, introducing a many absolute supercharged SRT Hellcat lineup ever with horsepower outlay now starting during 717.
And that’s usually a beginning.
Following a record-setting year with a introduction of a limited-production Dodge Challenger SRT Demon — a quickest, fastest and many absolute flesh automobile ever — Dodge//SRT is going behind to a flesh automobile roots by holding a many absolute engine — a supercharged HEMI® Demon V-8 — and leveraging a huge appetite outlay to boost a opening of a Hellcat. The result: a 797 hp 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.
“With 840 horsepower, a 9.65 quarter-mile time and Guinness World Record acceptance that it’s a initial prolongation automobile to lift a wheels during launch, a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon warranted a place in a record books,” pronounced Steve Beahm – Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA North America. “The Dodge Brothers would be unapproachable that we’re leveraging a appetite and opening of this proven engine to move a Demon-possessed Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye to an even wider high-performance fan audience.”
