The American automaker begins selling a boxed version of the 807 hp Hellcat Redeye V8 supercharged engine. The engine will be available through the Mopar Genuine Parts Store. The price of the new product is $ 1,807

Earlier this year, the iconic Super Stock Dodge Challenger was unveiled, powered by an 807bhp version of the infamous Hellcat Redeye V8 supercharged engine. This same powerplant is now available through the Mopar Genuine Parts Store as a box engine, officially known as the Hellcrate Redeye.

“2021 will be the year that Dodge is transformed into a pure performance brand with over 700 horsepower available for every Dodge model,” said Tim Kuniskis, FCA Global Passenger Car Division for Dodge North America. “The new 807-horsepower boxed Hellcrate Redeye makes it possible to build a unique car based on this engine.”

The latest Hellcrate is the fifth Hemi V8 engine available to enthusiasts, but it’s not cheap. It costs $ 21,807.

Mopar says Hellcrate Redeye is not just a modified version of the standard Hellcrate engine. It boasts a larger supercharger and a stronger underbody with a forged alloy steel crankshaft, powder forged connecting rods and high strength pistons. Various improvements to the cooling and lubrication system are also intended to improve engine cooling, and as a result, the engine revs up to 6500 rpm.

In addition, Mopar also offers a Front End Accessory Drive (FEAD) kit, which adds a generator, a power steering pump and all the equipment needed to run them. Flywheel and clutch assemblies are also available for screwing manual transmissions.

The new Hellcrate Redeye is already available to order from Mopar and comes with a 90-day warranty.

Not so long ago, we wrote that Dodge will present three new versions of the Challenger and Charger models. A recently released document specifying the terms of cooperation between FCA and the Canadian industrial workers’ union mentions the creation of at least three versions of the sports models of the Dodge Challenger and Charger.
