Thanks to the Auto Nation Group, the official distributor of Dodge, RAM, Jeep, and Chrysler products in the Philippines, you can now buy the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye locally, the most agile version of the Dodge Challenger ever.
On top of being powerful, the retro modern styling on the Redeye looks really good too
Notice that we called it the “most agile?” Well, that’s because this version of the Dodge Challenger is road-course capable, unlike the limited-edition Challenger SRT Demon, which was optimized for drag racing.
So what does the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye offer? First, let’s talk about its mechanicals; the stuff that makes it roar.
2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye: It’s essentially a GT car
Under the hood, the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is powered by a supercharged, 6.2 liter Hemi V8. The said engine makes a staggering 808 horsepower and 959 Nm of torque.
Sure, the Demon makes more, but what makes the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye special is number 1) it comes with the largest supercharger for a production car ever, and 2) it can actually handle well on a race track and on public roads.

Why? Think of it this way: the Demon was built to be like the muscle cars of old, which were optimized for brutal straight-line acceleration.
The Redeye on the other hand comes with a more versatile suspension system, and a set of better, larger Brembo brakes. This of course makes it behave more like a GT car than a muscle car.
You can also say that if the Demon is a hammer, the Redeye is a knife
The Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye also shares the same 10-speed automatic with the Demon. It is however adjusted for continuous on or off hard throttling for taking on corners.
Do note however that with that kind of power and a rear-wheel-drive layout, we’d rather like to think that you’ll still need some bit of driving experience first before handling this monster on public roads.
