This summer is scheduled to be a scorching one, so why not complement it with some seriously hot wheels? Iconic American carmaker Dodge has your back with the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye. It’s simply a four-door monster.
The word “Hellcat” perks the ear of virtually every car enthusiast. In fact, its now-legendary power will immediately have muscle-car fanatics drooling at the mere mention of “Redeye” attached, signifying numerous enhancements taking the Charger to another level this year. With Dodge justly labeling it a “Demon-possessed” vehicle, this year’s introduction of the Redeye comes with specs that are simply jaw dropping; the 6.2-liter HEMI engine's 797 horsepower, 707 lb.-feet of torque and a top speed of 203 mph will certainly boost the numbers of the growing legion of devotees. The fender flares add 3.5 inches more width to the widebody platform along with the award-winning SRT Power Chiller accompanying this trim. Everything from the transmission shift speeds to the paddle shifters, steering, traction and suspension settings can be controlled by the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, plus three SRT Drive Modes: Street (Auto), Sport and Track. The generously standard Brembo brake system keeps up to five passengers confident to offset the Hellcat’s roar.
A membership to a nearby track comes highly recommended for the future owner in order to truly experience what the Hellcat has to offer. In fact, there’s a Bondurant High Performance Driving School based in Chandler, Arizona, which Dodge sponsors to truly assist in training this animal.
Whatever is considered, make it habitual to kindly decline offers to race at stoplights from sports car conductors and naysayers this muscle-flexing Charger is renowned for. Instead, keep it safe, avoid tickets, and just keep them wondering as you drive off smiling.
Price: $69,995 (MSRP); $86,865 with all options listed above.
