After I took delivery of my 2022 Jailbreak Charger, I decided that it would be fun to recreate the Tor Red with silver stripe combination in a Jailbreak Challenger. I was able to order a Jailbreak Challenger through a dealer, but I couldn’t find a Redeye version anywhere. I reluctantly put in the order for a 707 HP Jailbreak Hellcat, which wasn’t a wide-body car.
Before that car was delivered, a friend of mine found this car at a dealer in Utah. It’s the wide-body Redeye, which has 807 HP. I figured that my choice was either silver stripes, or a wide-body with 100 extra horsepower. It wasn’t a tough decision – I snapped up the Redeye and have no regrets. This is a wonderful car, and it looks good sitting next to the Charger.
Dodge is eliminating the Challenger model from its lineup in 2024. I have owned about a dozen Challengers over the years. I had some early model Challengers (my 2nd collector car was a ’70 Challenger with 440 Six Pack and shaker hood) and I have also had some new Challengers from 2008 through 2018. I will miss the Challenger model and am thrilled that I was able to get this car.
