Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody: More Thicc is More Better

The Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody is automotive “more”. You want more power? It’s got that. You want more room than the Challenger? It’s got that. And now, do you want a wider body and stance? It’s got that too.

[Disclaimer: Dodge tossed us the keys to the Hellcat Widebody and included a tank of fuel. We needed two more tanks…]

    Awesome car. It is very clear Jeff has corona virus symptoms. Tell the Dodge guys I’ll buy it for $45K and I will disinfect the car myself. Go home Jeff.

      haha, this was shot a few months back. No Corona in this house… virus, beer, or otherwise, at the moment.

    Impressive. However, I think the Scat Pack is the sweet spot in the lineup for my tastes and budget. I have no need for Hellcat levels of power, when 485 hp is available for $30k less. Similarly, although I love the wide body look, I think I’d go with skinny and pocket six grand.

      Scat Pack is definitely the “smarter” buy.
      But the power of the Hellcat is downright intoxicating.

        Trust me, if I had the money, I’d probably have one of every Hellthing that FCA sells. But I don’t, so I rationalize that I’m happier with simpler things.

        If the Charger were available from the factory with the 6-speed manual that the Challenger offers, I might honestly be driving one now. I’m sure that logistically, the swap would be a bolt-on, plug-and-play affair, given the similarity between the vehicles. The expense and warranty invalidation wouldn’t be worth it to me, though, and I’m sure the red tape isn’t worth it to Chrysler for the (possibly) 5 or 6 potential buyers that would be interested in a row-your-own sedan. So, no Hemi for me.

    If they decide to bring back purple, I’ll be trading in my 2016 SRT392 (plum crazy) on one of these.

    Yes, Buick did a good job naming the Roadmaster. But they also built a Hellcat three quarters of a century before Dodge did.
