Hennessey Unleashes 1,000-HP Dodge Challenger Redeye

Video / Comments

797 horsepower not enough for you? Hennessey will upgrade your Dodge Challenger Redeye to 1,000 horsepower.

Introduced for the 2019 model year after the Dodge Demon was discontinued, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is no slouch. Powering this beast is a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that sends 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. That's more than enough power for most people to handle, but for those who are brave enough to take the Redeye to the next level, Hennessey Performance is here to help.

The Texas tuner is now offering an HPE1000 performance upgrade for the 2019 and 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, which increases the output to 1,035 horsepower at 6,500 rpm when running on race gas and 948 lb-ft of torque at 4,200 rpm.

This impressive performance increase was achieved thanks to a 2.65-liter supercharger system, supercharger pulley and throttle body upgrades, stainless steel long tube headers, and high-flow catalytic converters. Other upgrades include a high-flow supercharger bypass valve, upgraded high-flow fuel injectors, a high-flow air induction system, and a recalibrated ECU.

On the outside, the HPE1000 is distinguished by Hennessey exterior badges and HPE1000 badges, while the cabin features serial numbered plaques and premium floor mats.

Hennessey hasn't announced how the insane power increase has affected the performance, but it's safe to assume the modified muscle car will accelerate faster than the regular Redeye, which takes 3.4 seconds to sprint from 0-62 mph before maxing out at 203 mph.

To showcase the 1,000-hp Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye in action, Hennessey has also released a video showing it burning some rubber on a race track and taking a trip to the dyno, where we get to hear its glorious supercharged V8 scream its lungs out. Pricing details for Hennessey's mad modified Redeye haven't been announced, but the regular Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye starts at $70,245.
