What purrs like a kitty but roars down the drag strip? The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. The model takes the same Hellcat engine that's in the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and tunes it to achieve a whopping 807-horsepower, making the model the world's quickest and most powerful muscle car.

"I swore that we'd never build another Demon and we won't," said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. "But I also said that every Challenger Hellcat and The drag-racing, quarter-mile-crushing spirit of the limited-production 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon lives on through the 2020 Challenger SRT Super Stock."

The car's supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission to deliver 707 pound-feet of torque. It can get from zero to 60 mph in 3.25 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds at 131 mph. It has a tire-limited top speed of 168 mph.

Dodge has given the Challenger SRT Super Stock a standard Widebody design, which allows for bigger wheels, adding 3.5 inches to the width of the typical Challenger. It wears lightweight 18-inch by 11-inch wheels sporting a Low Gloss Granite finish and 315/40R18 Nitto NT05R drag radials.

The car slows and stops thanks to aluminum Brembo four-pistons brake calipers and 14.2-inch vented rotors. It has a performance-tuned asymmetrical differential.

Drivers can switch the car into Track mode to activate the model's revised shock tuning specifically for the drag strip. Its Bilstein high-performance Adaptive Damping Suspension shifts as much weight to the rear wheels as possible. Additionally, the traction control system is disabled, paddle shifters are activated, and the torque converter lockup point is raised.

Auto, Sport, and Custom drive modes are also available to be chosen by the driver. Auto is considered "street mode" and regulates the engine output to the driver's preference (can be customized using the red key). Steering and suspension preferences are also set and Eco mode can be run simultaneously to save on fuel.

Dodge has equipped the model with a number of technologies to make it track-ready. Launch Assist works to mininmize wheel hop while Launch Control holds the engine at the optimal rpm rate allowing to maximum acceleration. Line Lock engages the front brakes to keep the car stationary but leaves the back wheels able to perform a burnout.

Torque reserve closes the engine's bypass valve at 950 rpm to manage fuel flow and provide a boost. Race Cooldown allows the car's fan and coolant pump to continue working after the car is shut off.

SRT Performance Pages show the car's data as part of its Uconnect infotainment system. The SRT Power Chiller diverts air conditioning fluid to the unit helping to cool the supercharger.

The car will look like most every other Challenger Widebody on the road, with no special badging to denote the Super Stock credentials.

Dodge will offer the car in 13 different colors: F8 Green, Frostbite, Go Mango, Hellraisin, IndiGo Blue, Octane Red, Pitch Black, Sinamon Stick, Smoke Show, TorRed, Triple Nickel, and White Knuckle. It's available with a black, black/caramel, Demonic Red, or sepia interior.

Orders for the model open this summer with production beginning in the autumn. Pricing has yet to be announced.
