Only a few hundred examples are being produced for 2020.
Back in July, Dodge expanded its muscle car family with the new Challenger SRT Super Stock. Built to dominate the drag strip, the Super Stock is a spiritual successor to the Challenger SRT Demon. But while the Demon was limited to just 3,000 units and was only produced for one model year, the Super Stock doesn't have a production cap.
Ironically, the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic has made the 2020 Super Stock even rarer than the Demon. Speaking with Motor Trend, a Dodge spokesperson confirmed that only around 200 Super Stocks have rolled off the production line for the 2020 model year.
It's a similar situation to the production run of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Chevrolet was planning to build around 20,000 units of the new Corvette Stingray, but only 2,700 were built after production was cut short due to factory closures. Consequently, many customers are being offered a 2021 model instead.
Fortunately, the 2021 Super Stock will be mechanically identical to the 2020 model. That means power is still provided by a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine producing 807 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque on pump gas, which is 10 more hp than the standard SRT Hellcat Redeye.
All that American muscle is sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. This setup enables the drag-focused Super Stock to sprint from 0-62 mph in 3.25 seconds, blitz the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds at 131 mph, and achieve a top speed of 168 mph. That makes it the world's quickest and most powerful muscle car currently in production.
A widebody is also fitted as standard, along with Brembo brakes, adaptive suspension, 18-inch wheels, and drag radials. Pricing for the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Super Stock starts at $79,995 excluding destination charges, but the rarity of the 2020 model will inevitably cause prices to skyrocket, just as they did for the 2020 Corvette.
