One underreported consequence of Earth’s exploding population (7.5 billion and counting) is the stress this puts on Santa Claus in terms of making his rounds to deliver toys to all the good little girls and boys in a single night.

One underreported consequence of Earth's exploding population (7.5 billion and counting) is the stress this puts on Santa Claus in terms of making his rounds to deliver toys to all the good little girls and boys in a single night. Well, it finally occurred to the nice folks at Dodge/SRT that upgrading the quality of Mr. Claus' powertrain from "tiny reindeer" to "mighty horses" while simultaneously increasing the quantity from 8 to 797 could really help speed up the toy distribution process. That's right, this is no mere 707-horse Helldeer, it's a Helldeer Redeye, as the revised, antlered badging attests.

Tesla Includes Model 3 Performance Upgrade as Standard

Tesla Includes Model 3 Performance Upgrade as Standard It's a $5000 gift from Elon Musk to the Model 3 buyer. Tesla's prices are almost as volatile as its traded stock. In its latest change, the electric-car company has made a $5000 option package on the Model 3 standard without any price increase to the model. Earlier this month, Tesla introduced the Model 3 Mid Range for $46,200, only to increase the price by $1000 several days later while decreasing the Long Range trim by the same amount, to $54,200. Currently, the $47,200 Mid Range is the most affordable new Tesla, a mid-spec, rear-wheel-drive version that achieves 260 miles of EPA-estimated range.

One elfin trade secret not divulged in the press materials at the sleigh's gala L.A. show launch is just exactly how that abundant power is translated into motion, seeing as the 275/40ZR20 P Zeros have all been replaced by sleigh runners. After careful examination, your humble technical director deduces that forward motion occurs via exhaust thrust out the rear-fascia-mounted tailpipes, while steering is accomplished by redirecting the abundant exhaust flow to either of the four side-thruster outlets positioned where the front wheels live on terrestrial Challengers. Retardation is then entirely left to the friction of the atmosphere and rooftop snow.

The biggest apparent downside we'd like to prepare Santa for is one familiar to most adopters of muscle cars—it's way tighter on toy-space in the back than the reindeer-powered sleigh Claus has become accustomed to. So this Christmas we'll be eager to learn whether the improved speed enabled by the 99-fold-plus increase in power can offset the need for more frequent returns to the North Pole distribution center to refill the open trunk. Check back on Boxing Day for a full report.
