Dodge’s latest factory-stock drag-strip monster might not be quite as bonkers as a Demon, but the good news is that the 2020 Challenger SRT Super Stock won’t cost as much, either. The Super Stock will cost $81,090 (including a $1,495 destination fee). That’s just over $100 for each of the Super Stock’s 807 horsepower before a likely gas-guzzler tax, though since we yet don’t have EPA fuel economy ratings for it, we can’t tell you exactly how our calculation is affected.

In exchange for that much cash, you’ll get a Challenger that Dodge says can sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.25 seconds and complete the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds. Besides the 807-hp V-8 (up from 797 in the Hellcat Redeye), the Super Stock comes with sticky Nitto-brand drag radial tires, a unique Bilstein-brand suspension, unique lightweight 18-inch wheels, a “performance-tuned” limited-slip differential and a standard eight-speed automatic transmission with a 3.09 final drive gear.
The tires are one of the key components contributing to the Super Stock’s quickness, according to a statement from Dodge chief Tim Kuniskis.
“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,” Kuniskis said in a statement. “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.”

If a car that can do a 10-second quarter-mile straight from the showroom floor is your cup of tea, orders for the 2020 Super Stock open later in August — and unlike the Demon, the Super Stock will carry over into at least the next model year, so you don’t have to act immediately to grab one.
