The V8 days of Christmas: Wish List

Editor’s Note: This is the 5th video in a series of videos created by Dodge to chronicle how Santa’s Sleigh – the Redeye Express – was built. In the spirit of the season, Power & Performance will share each video leading up to the Christmas holiday.

This video, created by Dodge, takes viewers behind the scenes of the “rebuild,” where Santa, Mrs. Claus, and the elves take inspiration from Dodge and overhaul his sleigh, the Redeye Express.

A little known fact … Mrs. Claus is a ‘gear head’ and had a few suggestions for Santa’s sleigh, including “a supercharged HEMI V8 with 797 horsepower, 707 lb. feet of torque, a wide body package with 3.5-inches of added width – just like the SRT Hellcat – for improved handling and braking, power bulge aluminum hood with heat extractors, 6-piston Brembo front brakes and, oh, heated seats would be nice!”

The Jolly Fast Man series features Dodge personalities Bill Goldberg, a professional athlete, NFL player, pro wrestler, and automobile aficionado as Santa and “All Girls Garage” host and automotive enthusiast, Cristy Lee as Mrs. Claus.

In the spirit of the season, Dodge has made the series available to view on the brand’s YouTube channel, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram channels throughout December.
