Look at the monstrously fast acceleration of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye

On the old runway, the overclocking of the American Dodge Challenger coupe in the more productive version of the Hellcat Redeye was checked. The car was able to accelerate to 289 km / h at a distance of 1.6 km.

 The American Dodge Challenger Hellcat is a very powerful car. Under its hood is the Hemi V8 engine, which can offer more than 700 horsepower in its standard form. Along with a frantic power plant, this version of the machine could reach speeds of more than 305 km / h. But even after the automaker introduced such a powerful version of its legendary coupe, he did not calm down and decided to increase the number of “horses”.

 We are talking about the Dodge Challenger Redeye, the overclocking of which is shown in this video. The old runway was chosen as the testing venue.

Redeye offers an updated version of the 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8 producing nearly 800 hp, as well as wider tires that are more suited to reach maximum speed.

 All this power allows Redeye to accelerate to 289 km / h at a distance of 1.6 km. We would like to think that the eight-speed automatic transmission seen on the Dodge in this video has a faster gear shift than the six-speed mechanics. All we can say for sure is that the guys at the Johnny Bomer test site recorded almost all the possible characteristics of the machine obtained during acceleration.
