Dodge Challenger Hellcat ‘Sleighs’ at 2018 L.A. Auto Show
Thanks to Dodge, Santa’s got a brand new 797-horsepower bag that will jingle the hell outta your bells.
To ring in the holidays this year, the crafty elves at Dodge built the big bearded guy a custom Challenger Hellcat Redeye. And it is crazy. We were lucky enough to see this sick sleigh up close at the 2018 L.A. Auto Show and the chopped Challenger is all we want for Christmas.
We first saw the hardcore American muscle sleigh, dubbed “the Redeye Express,” for Dodge’s commercial “Upgrade” starring WWE star Goldberg as St. Nick. The modified Challenger has two hulking metal runners attached to transform it into the coolest sled ever.
Custom details include adding antlers to the Hellcat logo. Rudolph has never looker tougher. Exclude him from reindeer games at your own peril.
The widebody Challenger Hellcat was modded for merrymaking, by lopping off the roof and removing the doors.
With a 6.2-liter Hemi V8 powering the sleigh, 797 horsepower and 707 lb.-ft. of torque is able to stuff every stocking with more power. Four chrome exhaust pipes add to the decidedly rugged style.
The interior strikes a perfect balance of muscle and luxury, and seats seven. Maybe more, if you’re driving with elves.
Of course, Dodge built a custom trunk for Kris Kringle to carrying extra cargo, presents, and coal.
The custom build actually does work, that SRT supercharged engine fires right up. A very fun and badass build by Dodge. Santa Claus is coming to town. And he means business.
