What You Need To Know About The Red-Eye Charger

Here is everything I learned about the Hellcat Red-Eye Charger

A couple of years ago, we learned that the Charger was given the Hellcat treatment and now the Red-Eye treatment has found it. Here is everything I learned about the Red-Eye Charger at the FCA event last Tuesday.


The Red-Eye Charger boasts 797 horsepower and 707 torques in the 6.2L supercharged Hellcat engine under the hood that goes to the rear wheels like all muscle cars. The Red-Eye will receive a wide body kit. As far as specs go, every vent is functioning and has a purpose. The wheels are forged aluminum 20x11 with a 305 width all around with a 6 piston brake system. The new hood on the Red-Eye (and Hellcat) has something called heat extractors as well as functioning vents for letting air in the engine to engulf as well as us for airflow. All of this helps the Red-Eye Charger get from 0-60 in 3.6 seconds, a 1/4 mile time of 10.6 seconds, and a top speed of a whopping 203 miles per hour. Which now makes it FCA's fastest sedan on the market, knocking the Giulia Quadrifoglio off its pedestal. It is quite exciting to know that an American car takes a high spot on the top speed list. Maybe even the highest top speed holder.

  • If only FCA would do the proper thing and give it a manual option...

  • I really have to wonder how long a motor that high strung will last. I know they test these beyond all possible operating conditions (I have personally seen it at FCA) but I have not heard word from owners whatsoever. That is something I would like to hear about moving forward. These models have always peaked my interest BECAUSE of this factor. It's impressive for sure. How long do they last in the real world?

    I know if I had one it would take a serious pounding on a daily basis. Glad it has six piston Brembos!!!!!

  • Why can't they build a new body/chassis for these awesome engines? That car is based on an early 2000's Mercedes E-class sedan. The interior is marginal at best. Why not adapt the Giulia chassis by stretching it a bit to fit that motor and drivetrain? Then give it the Mopar styling.

    • No idea. Your guess is as good as mine.

    • I think the Mitsu Lancer was the only car that has had a longer production run in the 2000's than the Charger. And then they cancelled it in the US.
