In Canada the rabid 600kW Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye has started to roll off the production line.

The supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V-8, derived from the record-setting 2018 Challenger SRT Demon and rated at 594kW and 957Nm of torque, making the Redeye the most powerful, quickest and fastest muscle car.

The supercharged V8 is mated exclusively to an 8-speed auto, with paddle shifters.

The combination delivers unmatched performance, with 0-100km/h in just 3.4 seconds, the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds at 210km/h and a top speed of 327km/h.

All 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat models feature a new fully functional, dual bonnet air intakes that pays homage to the distinctive Dodge design themes from some of its most famous muscle cars.

The new Redeye receives new badging, including a sinister red eye featured on the Hellcat fender badges, instrument panel, key fobs and supercharger housing.

Inside, the performance interior features a new 355km/h red speedometer and Redeye logo splash screen.

What a shame we don’t get this car here?
