The Redeye basically replaces the Demon and, although it is street legal, it is intended for the track. If you only intend to use your Challenger for street use, the standard 717 hp Hellcat is the better choice).
FCA says the 797 horsepower Challenger Redeye is now the quickest muscle car with a claimed 0-60 mph time of 3.4 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 10.8 seconds at 131 mph with a top speed of 203 mph. The Demon, capable of 840 hp. and 770 lb.-ft. on high-octane race fuel, had a claimed 0-to-60 mph in 2.3 seconds.
The Hellcat Redeye's Hemi is paired with an eight-speed automatic. Dodge says the power plant has 25 major component upgrades, including a larger supercharger (2.7 liters, up from 2.4) with higher boost pressure (14.5 psi, up from 11.6), strengthened connecting rods, pistons and valve train, high-capacity fuel injection system and improved lubrication. It gets a second fuel pump and a higher redline of 6,500 rpm.
It also has the Torque Reserve system that starts building boost before launching, as well as the air conditioned intercooler to provide extra cool intake air. Both of these were features in the Demon. Furthermore, if the standard 2.62:1 final ratio isn't quick enough for you, Dodge offers a 3.09:1 rear axle.
Externally, the Redeye comes with the Demon and Hellcat Widebody's fat fender flares. With them, you get 3.5-inch-wider wheels (20x11-inch forged "Devil's Rim" aluminum) with Pirelli P Zero 305/35ZR20 tires. It also has the new fully functional dual-snorkel hood. The left snorkel goes straight into the induction system and allows the engine to give the extra 10 hp. and reduce engine temperature by 4 degrees Fahrenheit. Although it does not have the Demon's Drag mode suspension tuning for weight transfer or TransBrake, it does have line lock and 6-piston Brembo brakes up front.
