The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock Is Actually Very Low Stock
Just like the Demon, the Challenger Super Stock was built with the drag strip in mind. There are some quintessential differences between the two, but one of them stands out more than the others.
As things stand right now, the Super Stock is going to be way more limited than the Demon, at least as far as the 2020MY is concerned.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock Is Almost As Expensive As the Demon
Dodge’s never-ending quest to roll out the most outrageous muscle cars on the market has taken another form with the launch of the Challenger SRT Super Stock. Billed as the fastest and most powerful muscle car in the world, the Challenger SRT Super Stock once again pushes the boundaries on what’s possible with muscle cars these days. It’s fitted with a unique suspension, exclusive tires, lightweight brakes, and 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8 engine that produces more power than all but one — you can guess what that “one” is — muscle car in history. With everything that Dodge used in creating the Challenger SRT Super Stock, you’d assume this muscle car to sells for a king’s ransom. Well, you assumed correctly. The Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock comes with a starting price of $79,595, making it the second most expensive Challenger model in history next to the aforementioned “one.” The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is still the one true king of all muscle cars, but the Challenger SRT Super Stock isn’t that far behind — in more ways than one.
2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat
The third-gen Dodge Durango has been on the market for almost a decade, and now Dodge has instilled it will Hellcat power. With 710 horses in a three-row family SUV, Dodge has put the Durango on a pedestal and has taken the center-stage in the segment. The Durango is now the most powerful factory-built SUV on the planet. For a machine this big to sprint to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds is a cardinal sin. But, what can we say; we still love it and are chuffed to bits with the announcement of the Dodge Durango Hellcat. One HELL of an engine, huh?
2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye
The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye is the range-topping version of Charger four-door sedan lineup. An upgrade to the more familiar Charger SRT Hellcat, the Redeye borrows its looks, drivetrain, and technology from the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. And just like the coupe, the sedan includes drivetrain components from the Challenger SRT Demon. Since there won’t be a Demon version of the Charger, the 2021 SRT Hellcat Redeye is the most powerful version of the American sedan. What’s more, it’s also the fastest and most powerful mass-produced sedan in the world. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.
2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock
The 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is the special-edition, SRT-tuned version of the Dodge Challenger. Developed for racing at the drag strip, but still road-legal, the 2021 Challenger SRT Super Stock bridges the gap between the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and the Challenger SRT Demon.
In short, the Super Stock is pretty much an upgrade package for the Redeye model. Fitted with a supercharged, 6.2-liter V-8 engine rated at 807 horsepower and capable of hitting 60 mph in 3.25 seconds, the 2021 Challenger SRT Super Stock is described by Dodge as the world’s quickest and most powerful muscle car. Let’s find out if this statement is true in the review below.
2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock Arrives As The World’s Quickest and Most Powerful Muscle Car
Just when you thought the Dodge Challenger couldn’t get any more mental, the SRT Super Stock arrives with its chest puffed out and already claiming the title of the world’s fastest and most powerful muscle car. Wider than the SRT Hellcat Redeye and sporting fat and sticky radial tires, the Challenger SRT Super Stock upends the Redeye as the most powerful muscle car in the world. It comes with the same powerhouse engine, but output is tuned to 807 horsepower. The Super Stock joins the demented Challenger SRT Demon as the only two muscle cars with more than 800 ponies on tap.Dodge hasn’t mentioned a price tag for the Super Stock, but expect it to cost a little more than the Hellcat Redeye’s $80,190 sticker price, and order books should open summer of 2020.
The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Is Fastest and Most Powerful Sedan In the World
The current-generation Dodge Charger is a bit long in the tooth. Introduced in 2011, it’s already nine years old as of 2020, and some argue that the 2015 facelift didn’t bring notable improvements beyond the looks and some extra tech. But Dodge did offer an SRT Hellcat model, which proved that the old Charger is not yet ready to surrender. Now, the FCA-owned brand takes things up a notch with the SRT Hellcat Redeye. Basically a sedan version of the Challenger with the same name, the Charger finally gets some bits and pieces from the extreme Challenger Demon. Granted, it’s a full-fledged, drag-ready Demon, but it’s the most extreme current-generation Charger you can buy. And if that’s not enough for you, it’s also the most powerful and fastest sedan in the world!
Top 10 Fastest Used Cars Under $20K
With the prices of cars increasing, a $20,000 used sports car has become harder to obtain these days. Not too long ago, you could afford a decent runner for $20,000 and still have enough change to buy a few cosmetic kits. But that’s no longer the case today, or at least, not for the most part. Look hard enough, though, and you can still score some good deals on used sports cars for $20,000 or less. These cars aren’t world-beaters by any stretch of the imagination, but they should still have enough juice to get the adrenaline flowing. They’re out there in the world. All you need to do is look for them.
Video: 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 Races Camaro ZL1 1LE and Hellcat Redeye
The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 has a massive appetite for both drag and track races. Winning them, too. Not that long ago, Ford’s top dog showed it is no pushover in front of the Ferrari 812 Superfast and Porsche 911 GT3 RS, beating the Hellcat effortlessly in a quarter-mile race. But this time, it has to face the Redeye.
As it turns out, the Shelby GT500 is also well-equipped to do battle against its domestic rivals. In this new episode of Throttle House, the go-fast Mustang had to face the challenge of Chevrolet’s ZL1 1LE and Dodge’s Challenger Hellcat Redeye, under the close supervision of Jason Cammisa and Randy Pobst.
Wacky Races: Dodge Challenger Hellcat Battles Lambo Urus on the Track
Let’s be honest here. Which of the two would you take for a spin during track day? Is it the beefy Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye or the chunkyLamborghini Urus? Tough call, right? We’re thinking none of them, just to be clear, but MotorTrend here did it anyway.
So, here’s the thing. You’ve got a heavy SUV racing against a heavy muscle car that’s been fitted with bits and bobs from the Demon, a car that’s designed and built to go freakishly fast in a straight line. Hell, what can go wrong?
You’re More Than Likely Assured an "L" If You Decide to Race This Dodge Viper
Dodge Vipers are famous for being fast; the most recent iteration of the American sports car featured an 8.4-liter V-10 engine that produced 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque and it was able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 208 mph. But as fast as the Viper was before it was retired, nothing can prepare you for this Viper. This refers to a heavily modified 2006 Dodge Viper that recently set the record for the fastest recorded speed in a Viper when it clocked a mind-bending top speed run that maxed out at 252 mph. The record was set at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds in West Palm Beach, Florida. The 252-mph run was far and away the fastest a Dodge Viper has gone. Best of all, the Viper that did it is actually street legal.
Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye
The modern-day Dodge Demon is officially out of production, but in its place comes the Challenger Hellcat Redeye – a model that essentially bridges the gap between the range-topping hellcat and the late Demon. It’s powered by the same 6.2-liter V-8, but it’s been tuned to deliver 797 horsepower at 6,300 rpm. Torque figures carry over from the standard Hellcat at 707 pound-feet, but the Redeye benefits from lots of Demon gear, including things like line-lock and launch control. Sure, we would have been happier if Dodge introduced a second-gen Challenger for 2019 but this is at least one way to keep things fresh, right? Either way, we decided to make the Hellcat Redeye our wallpaper of the day and give it a little desktop love. Want to join in? We’ve got some pretty sweet wallpapers waiting for you below!
Dodge Preps For Xmas With Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Sleigh
With Christmas around the corner, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is the latest car to get a sleigh makeover. Introduced as part of Dodge’s “Big Finish” campaign, the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Sleigh stars in a new commercial called “Upgrade” alongside retired WWE wrestler Bill Goldberg, who happens to play a pretty jacked-up Santa Claus. With muscles coming out of his ears, Santa decides to keep with the profile this holiday season by commissioning his elves to make improvements to his current sleigh. The result, as you can see, is a sleigh that’s going to make a lot of pony car enthusiasts wish they had the means to do the same thing.
Mopar Drops 1,000-Horsepower Crate Engine Bombshell at SEMA 2018
Following a number of teasers in the run-up to the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas, the speed gurus from Mopar, FCA’s in-house performance group, pulled the sheets on a brand-new, utterly custom Dodge Charger concept car, and with it, a new crate engine that puts last year’s “Hellcrate” package to shame.
2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye
Introduced for the 2015 model year, the Challenger Hellcat stunned the muscle car market through its powerful engine and impressive performance. Dodge took things to a new level with the Demon in 2017, when it introduced a series of segment-first features. Come 2018, and FCA launched a new model that bridges the gap between the impressive Hellcat and the absolutely evil Demon. Meet the Hellcat Redeye!
While not as menacing as the Demon performance-wise, the Redeye borrows numerous drivetrain features from the drag-prepped coupe. It’s also significantly more powerful than the regular Hellcat and obviously faster. What’s the purpose of this car with the Hellcat already more powerful than the competition? Well, the Challenger is pretty long in the tooth and Dodge is probably trying to keep things interesting before the next-generation muscle car arrives. Let’s find out what makes the Hellcat Redeye special in the review below.

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Is Now The Most Powerful Muscle Car In Production
Dodge axed the outrageous Challenger SRT Demon following a limited production run for the 2018 model year, but luckily, the aftershock of this cataclysmic machine will continue to rattle the Challenger lineup for the foreseeable future, as the latest model gains a host of Demon-inspired performance goodies.
Continue reading for the full story.
Between 2016 and 2020 the list of supercars will include the Ford GT, the Mercedes-AMG Project One, the Aston Man Valkyrie, and at least one new car from Ferrari. But what are sports cars fans with smaller wallets supposed to do? We have some great cars like the Miata and BMW is bringing a Z4 replacement soon, but so many great cars don’t exist anymore. Especially in the “affordable” range.
So we started talking in the office about what sports cars we want to see revived, and we settled on a pair of classic sports cars and one car that is officially dead, but not out of showrooms yet. The Porsche 944, Honda S2000, and the Dodge Viper are all in our dream garage of dead cars we want to return. Keep reading to find out why!
Dodge Viper ACR Almost Breaks Seven Minutes At The Nürburgring: Video
It may not have succeeded in reclaiming the Nürburgring production car lap record from the Lamborghini Huracán Performante, but finally, the Dodge Viper got the proper send-off it so richly deserves, all thanks to the passion and determination of the Viper Owners Association. Relentless in their pursuit of Nürburgring glory, members of the group continued to bang in laps around the Nürburgring in an effort to unseat the Huracán Performante’s record lap time of 6:52.01. It failed to even get close, but that shouldn’t take away from the accomplishment of squeezing in a lap time of 7:01.3 around the 12.9-mile lap.
Yep. Against all odds, drivers Dominik and Mario Farnbacher and all the people involved in the endeavor managed to improve on its previous fastest lap of 7:03.23, coming a second over actually breaking the seven-minute barrier. The achievement is made even more impressive by the fact that these Viper owners had little to no help from Dodge or FCA to bring the Viper ACR to the famed German track. The collective relied on a fund-raising effort and a few sponsors to even come this far in their quest and while they did fall short of their ultimate goal (the Huracan was still nine seconds faster around the track) they have nothing to be ashamed about.
They did what FCA and Dodge should’ve done in the first place. They gave the Viper a proper tribute and had they not crashed out, who knows if they could’ve really broken that all-too precious seven-minute barrier. It doesn’t matter now, nor should it because the Viper Owners Association represented the Viper about as well as they could. Well done, guys.
Pennzoil’s "Exorcising the Demon" Video Puts the Dodge Challenger Demon In Its Element: Video
There are some things the Dodge Challenger Demon is good at. Then there are things that the Dodge Challenger Demon is great at. Considering that it has 840 horsepower at its disposal, you’d think that it’d be the perfect car to do burnouts and go drifting in. Oil company Pennzoil seems to think so, too, and was actually front and center in unleashing the Demon’s drifting abilities in a video called “Exorcising the Demon.”
Clever titles aside, the video is as good as it gets in terms of showcasing the Challenger Demon’s capabilities. Sure, we know it to be a juggernaut of acceleration and a monster on the drag strip. But what happens when you put it in an urban setting like a night in Pittsburgh, ask rallycross star Rhys Millen to drive it, and let it run loose? You get what can best be described as a two-and-a-half-minute highlight reel of the Challenger Demon doing anything from burnouts to donuts and everything else in between. Throw in some special effects to highlight the muscle car’s earthquake-inducing, torque-tactic acceleration and you have as good a promotional video for the Challenger Demon as anything Dodge has released before it.
The treatment of the video is exceptional in it of itself. The cinematography captures the grittiness of the Steel City, serving as the perfect backdrop for a car like the Challenger Demon to run roughshod over. And like any video these days that’s worth its salt, the ending of “Exorcising the Demon” essentially serves as a teaser for what’s to come next. I’m not going to spoil the surprise at the end because it’s definitely worth waiting for.
Crowdfunded Nürburgring Run Is A Fitting Send-Off For The Dodge Viper
Leave it to people power to get something done that an automaker of Dodge’s status wasn’t able to do. Most of you will probably remember a few months ago, a group of Dodge Viper enthusiasts started pooling their resources together to accomplish one goal: send the fifth-generation Dodge Viper to the Nürburgring to attempt a lap run. I didn’t think that it could happen, but I’m happy to have been proven wrong. The crowdfunding movement actually worked and a bone-stock Viper ACR found its way to the famed German race track. More importantly, it was able to set a lap time of 7:03.45, almost nine seconds quicker than the 7:12.13 lap time set by its predecessor back in 2011.
It’s true that the current-generation Viper ACR’s lap time is still a long ways away from the current production car lap record of 6:52.01 held by the Lamborghini Huracán Performante. But just because it’s still over 10 seconds away from the record, it doesn’t mean that the Viper ACR’s time at the ‘Ring was a complete waste. In fact, the lap time set by the American sports car placed it sixth-fastest of all time among production cars, faster than the Nismo-prepped Nissan GT-R, the Mercedes-AMG GT R, and the Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06. More importantly, driver Dominik Farnbacher and the team behind the attempt will make a go at the track a few more times this week with the goal of besting the lap times of the Porsche 918 Spyder and the Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce. Looks like the Dodge Viper ACR’s quest for Nürburgring glory isn’t done just yet.
