Reveal / Comments

Here's what you need to know.

Dodge is definitely the company you think of when it comes to affordable horsepower. The Challenger SRT Hellcat is one monstrous drag racer, and other Fiat Chrysler offerings like the recently unveiled Durango Hellcat and Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk are just as exciting.

But when you want a sedan with four doors and enough power to blow those doors off, it's the brand new Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye that we've all been itching to see. Well, the wait is over, and the muscular sedan is the most powerful and the fastest mass-produced sedan on the planet. How fast is it exactly? Well, it'll clock 203 mph.

The 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi under the hood is good for a whopping 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque, all of which will once again go to the rear wheels. Despite the obvious traction challenges, Dodge says this sleeper will do the quarter-mile in just 10.6 seconds with an exit speed of 129 mph.

Furthermore, on a twisty 2.1-mile circuit, it'll be 1.2 seconds quicker than the regular Charger SRT Hellcat, a car that is certainly no slouch itself. To help with those traction issues, fender flares allow for 3.5 inches more width, which subsequently means wider wheels and tires can be fitted.

Naturally, there are some styling changes too, with a new hood that rams air into the trademark SRT Power Chiller. New 20-inch Lightweight Carbon Black wheels are wrapped in Pirelli rubber which helps the Charger Redeye get from 0-60 mph in around three and a half seconds. The supercharger that powers this beast is also the biggest on any production car at 2.7 liters.

More boost (14.5 psi versus 11.6) and a 300-rpm higher rev limit at 6,500 rpm are helped along by two dual-stage fuel pumps. Despite the fact that the fuel tank can be drained in under 11 minutes, Dodge claims that the car will still achieve 22 mpg on the highway.

Pricing has not yet been announced, but it's sure to sell like hotcakes.
