Fiat Chrysler Automobiles rolls some new muscle for 2019 with an allusion to the mighty Dodge Demon.

The highlight is the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye with 797 hp, which the company presented on Thursday at its Chelsea Proving Grounds.

"I want to say it's a Hellcat t It's been possessed by a demon," said Steve Beahm, head of car brands for FCA North America.

Fiat Chrysler says it took advantage of the performance of the turbocharged Hemi Demon V8 that powered the limited-edition Challenger SRT Demon, which recently finished its production run boost the Hellcat Redeye. The Demon, one of the most powerful production cars of all time, had 840 horsepower.

Fiat Chrysler says the new Hellcat Redeye with its 6.2-liter V-8 and an eight-speed engine creates a torque of 707 pounds transmission. It can hit 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 203 mph.

"Like its demon brothers, it has 25 major component upgrades, including a larger supercharger, reinforced connecting rods and pistons, high-speed valve train, fuel injection system and improved lubrication system," the company said in a new issue.

The car draws intake air from three sources, including a new double-snorkel bonnet and driver-side air-catcher headlamps and intake near the wheel liner, the release said.

Fuel consumption can vary widely.
