It does miss out on the Demon's 18-inch wheels, special drag radial tyres and uprated brakes, though, and comes only with an eight-speed automatic transmission where the standard Hellcat can be bought with three pedals. I'm glad it stuck around.
The Challenger GT - which was previously offered exclusively with all-wheel drive - gains a new rear-wheel drive variant for 2019; it'll retail for $29,995.
Inside, the Redeye has a leather-trimmed flat-bottom steering wheel and sports seats trimmed in Houndstooth cloth with silver contrast stitching; various combinations of leather and alcantara trim are available to order. The base R/T is the only V-8-powered model to escape a gas guzzler tax on both transmission choices.
Beighle: The Cleveland Cavaliers didn’t deserve LeBron James
We wish his kids, his wife Savannah, his mother Gloria, and LeBron himself nothing but the best in the years and decades ahead. The basketball star was also welcomed to LA Lakers by star footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Twitter , who plays for LA Galaxy.
Packing in a 6.2-litre V8 mated to a 2.7-litre belt-driven supercharger, the Hellcat Redeye is capable of putting out a staggering 797bhp and 707lb ft of torque.
The vehicle will be on sale in the fourth quarter of 2018 for around $70,000, and unlike last year's Demon, Beahm is promising that it will be much more widely available.
Also available will be a satin black-finished boot lid spoiler, and a widebody package that adds 44mm on each side to the width of the vehicle, making room for 20 inch forged-alloy wheels shod with Pirelli P-Zero gumballs. The new Challenger Hellcat Redeye is absurd, putting out 797 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque.
Just after revitalising the Charger line-up, Dodge has confirmed that the Challenger range has undergone a similar treatment. Six-speed manual versions are subject to a gas guzzler tax of $1,000.
