Wat we’ve here’s a four-door sedan so, actually, they don’t make ‘em like they used to. They clearly do now no longer, however withinside the case of this precise Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, they lead them to better. They lead them to louder. They lead them to bigger. And chiefly else, they lead them to… insaner? That’s now no longer a word, I understand, however forgive me as my mind remains a bit scrambled after experiencing what might be the maximum off-the-wall vehicle I’ve ever pushed whilst now no longer on a song.
Heck, I don’t assume I’ve pushed whatever this loopy whilst at the song either. Those which have been following Dodge’s SRT department as of overdue will understand that they’ve been as much as a few quite bonkers you-understand-what during the last 1/2 of decade or so. The Scat Packs, Demons, TRXes, 392s and yes, the Hellcats they’ve been constructing have turn out to be the usual withinside the vehicle world – well, the home vehicle world, anyway – in terms of how a long way you may push “showroom spec”, to the factor wherein the SRT oldsters appear to surely now no longer care approximately what every person thinks. They’re going to push the ultra-effective inner combustion engine to the edge for so long as they can, and not anything brief of presidency law – that is coming, make no bones approximately it – can prevent them. Heck, one examine how they actually bragged approximately being banned with the aid of using the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) after they launched the Challenger Demon returned in 2018 indicates that even on-paper law might not do the trick.
The department and its merchandise stand as one giant, supercharged V8-powered center finger to the motoring establishment. And boy oh boy, this Charger is a wild journey if ever there has been one. A 797-hp, 707-lb-feet wild journey this is extra effective than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E63 S, the BMW M5 CS, Chevrolet Corvette and 3 Honda Civic Sis. There isn’t anyt any extra effective sedan on the market today, anywhere. This component is like rocket-powered curler skates or the Concorde; it’s far ultra.
