In June, Dodge took another step in its quest to harness all the horsepower. The 797-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, once the most powerful car in the company's lineup, got a boost and was baptized the Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. The package is very extra in every way possible, taking the Redeye to almost Demon levels of performance with a total of 807 horsepower. Now, we know how much it'll set you back.
A Challenger equipped with the Super Stock package will sell for $79,595. Of course, that price is before taxes, options, or destination fees. The Super Stock gets the same supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8, in addition to standard Nitto drag radials, lightweight Brembo brakes, an exclusive suspension setup, and 18-inch wheels.
Not bad for what's essentially a $3,000 upgrade to an already pricey Challenger Redeye. In a nutshell, the $80k will buy you a car that delivers 807 horsepower, does zero to 60 in 3.25 seconds, and the quarter-mile in just 10.5 seconds.
That might sound an awful lot like the specs of the now-discontinued Dodge Demon. Although it has the same engine, the Super Stock doesn’t have the Demon’s special tuning that allows it to run on race gas for the magical 840-hp number. It also doesn’t come with the exclusive Demon parts that make that car so special, which means no skinny front tires or special ECU. Buyers do get a particularly capable car for a lot less, money, however.
Dodge says that orders will open at dealers in late August and that production will start at its Brampton, Ontario plant this fall. Deliveries should start later this year.
