What happens when you mix the Redeye with the Demon? The Super Stock happens, also known as the most powerful Challenger for the 2020 model year as well as the most powerful series-production American car on sale today.

As opposed to the Demon, the Dodge brand has clearly stated that production isn’t limited and that it will run into the 2021 model year. As the headline implies, the starting price of $79,595 buys you 807 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque on pump gas.

Only available as a widebody, the Super Stock makes a case for itself with the help of high-performance suspension that includes “uniquely tuned” Blistein adaptive dampers. Brembo four-piston brake calipers with 14.2-inch ventilated rotors, 18- by 11-inch lightweight wheels finished in Low Gloss Granite, 315/40 drag radials from Nitto, and an asymmetrical limited-slip differential are a few other goodies.

Dealer orders will open by the end of August, but in truth, the range-topping model costs $81,090 including freight. Add $2,100 for the federally mandated gas-guzzler tax, and you’re looking at quite a lot of money for a two-door coupe from a company that’s known for one of the poorest reliability records in the business.

"There are a million jokes about bright colors, loud exhausts and racing stripes that make your car faster, but there is one sure thing — your car is only as fast as your tires," declared Tim Kuniskis, head of passenger cars at FCA in North America. “The 2020 Challenger SRT Super Stock gives our weekend warriors the ability to upgrade to 18-inch drag radials without having to spend a ton of money on changing out brakes and suspension components,” concluded the higher-up.

For $3,000 more than the wide-bodied Redeye, the Super Stock promises 3.25 seconds to 60 miles per hour and a quarter-mile time of 10.5 seconds. Of course, part of this performance can be attributed to the NT05R rubber shoes that Dodge lifted straight off the Demon. Speaking of the strip-slaying muscle car, the Demon’s transbrake is sadly missing from the specifications sheet of the Super Stock.
