To please muscle car fans with a need for four doors, Dodge finally gave the Charger SRT Hellcat the Redeye treatment when they announced their 2021 SRT lineup on July 2. It’s both an insane sedan and wild muscle car at the same time, something no other car can pull off. And with a new video, we can now see and hear the Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye on the move.
Unsurprisingly, the Charger Hellcat Redeye sounds fantastic and can create a vast amount of tire smoke. Like the also new 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat, it’s pretty much the ultimate way to take the kids to school. Also in that video, Dodge gave some of the stats for the Charger Hellcat Redeye, and every one of them is headline grabbing.
Because this is a sedan, and the new 2021 Challenger Super Stock will beat many of it’s stats in the muscle car category, here’s how some of those jaw-dropping figures hold up to the competition. And with the Chevy SS sedan now dead, all of the competition comes from overseas.
The best Audi can muster is 591 hp in the 2020 RS6 and RS7. BMW is next in line with the M5 Competition, at 617 hp. The Mercedes AMG GT 63 S Four-Door Coupe, tops the German trio, giving 630 hp along with its ridiculously long name. The Mercedes also has the highest top speed at 196.
What do all of these have in common? They won’t crack 200 mph, and have well over 100 hp less than the Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye. Dodge also claims the power to weight ratio on the new Redeye is better than any other sedan.
None of them can even beat the standard Charger Hellcat, which also got updated for 2021 with 717 hp. Yes, all of the Germans will be more luxurious, but they will also cost significantly more. If you’re going for the best bang for your buck in a sedan, nothing can touch the new Charger Redeye. And that’s before it’s deployed almost 800 hp.
