Dodge Middle East has introduced the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, with 797 hp, which is now available at all United Motors showrooms, the sole distributor for Dodge brand in the Kingdom.
“Following a record-setting year with the introduction of the limited-production Dodge Challenger SRT Demon — the quickest, fastest and most powerful muscle car ever — Dodge SRT is going back to its muscle car roots by taking its biggest, most powerful engine — the supercharged HEMI Demon V-8 — and leveraging its enormous power output to boost the performance of the Hellcat. The result: The 797-hp Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody, which is able to go from 0-100 kilometers per hour in just 3.4 seconds,” the company said.
Like its Demon brethren, it has 25 major component upgrades, including a larger supercharger, strengthened connecting rods and pistons, high-speed valve train, fuel injection system and improved lubrication system. Compared with the standard SRT Hellcat engine, the Redeye’s supercharged high-output engine features:
•Largest factory supercharger of any production car — 2.7 liters versus 2.4 liters
•Increased boost pressure: 14.5 psi versus 11.6 psi
•Higher rpm limit: 6,500 rpm versus 6,200 rpm
•Fuel: Two dual-stage fuel pumps versus one
•At full throttle, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye’s high-output engine consumes 5.4 liters/min of fuel — enough to drain the fuel tank in just under 11 minutes, yet is still rated at 10.692 liter/100km when driven in normal highway conditions
•Larger induction air box with three sources of intake air: New dual-snorkel hood, driver-side air catcher headlamp, and inlet near the wheel liner.
Additional features from the SRT Demon include:
•Torque reserve delivers up to 3.9 psi of boost at launch and up to 55 percent more engine torque.
•Only factory production car with both SRT power chiller and after-run chiller.
•High-strength steel prop shafts provide a 15 percent increase in torque capacity.
•41-spline half shafts provide a 20 percent increase in torque capacity.
The vehicle offers two final drive ratios, a standard 2.62:1 or available 3.09:1 for enhanced launch capability.
