The Dodge Challenger is entering the 2019 model year, and while the SRT Demon is no longer at the party the drag strip hero’s influence will be felt in a few of the lineup’s models, none more so than the new-for-2019 SRT Hellcat Redeye.

Featuring red eyes in its Hellcat badges to signify that it’s been possessed by the Demon, the SRT Hellcat Redeye comes with a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 pumping out an ungodly 797 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque. The result is 0-60 mph acceleration in 3.4 seconds, a quarter-mile ET of 10.8 seconds at 131 mph, and a top speed of 203 mph. In other words, supercars better watch out.

There’s more power for the regular SRT Hellcat too. For 2019, output from its 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 has been dialed up to 717 hp and 656 lb-ft, up from 707 hp and 650 lb-ft previously. This one will run the quarter-mile in 10.9 seconds.

Note, both quarter-mile figures are with the cars’ available Widebody option. Go with the narrow body and you’ll need to shave off 0.3 of a second off both times.

While official pricing hasn’t been set for the Hellcat Redeye, Dodge official said it will start from about $70,000.
