Miles straps into the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, the most powerful mass production sedan with a top speed of 203 mph. Yes, technically the Bentley Flying Spur and its 207-mph VMAX is faster, but the Charger Redeye is actually something the hard-working American may someday be able to afford. And if he or she can afford this V8-powered, supercharged sedan, then all it takes is a trip to his or her local Dodge dealership, some paperwork, and an $80K check to become the new owner of a 797-horsepower street-legal monster. If that isn’t the American dream in vehicular form, what is?

But could a brash muscle car like the Charger Redeye actually be something you’d want to live with every day, or are you better off socking away an extra $20-30K for a BMW M5 Competition or Mercedes-AMG E63 S sedan? Alternatively, if you can live without the extra pair of doors, would a Ford Mustang GT500 be a better fit? Find out in this in-depth review.
