Eric's Autos: 2021 Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye
What's wrong with 707 horsepower? Nothing that 797 horsepower can't cure!
That's a two-sentence summary of the Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye -- the most aptly named consumer product since Jolt Cola.
What It Is
Start with a Charger -- the last full-size, rear-drive American sedan you can still buy new -- and for just $30,570 to start.
Nix the 3.6-liter V6 that's standard in the Charger SXT; say "not enough!" to the 6.2- and 6.4-liter V8s that are available in the R/T and Scat Pack'd Chargers. Look bored when presented with the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that's standard in the Hellcat. We need more boost! More power.
That is the $79,170 Hellcat Redeye. The air-conditioned Nextel Cup car you can drive to work.
Better buckle up.
Because more is never enough, Dodge added the Redeye to the Charger lineup. It's what Sheriff Buford T. Justice called an attention-getter.
