Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

Starting from the next month, Dodge is providing a Challenger SRT Widebody that includes 3.5 inches of general width to the monster. It features a new electric power steering (EPS) system with SRT Drive Modes in Street, Sport, and Track.

The Widebody features a Power-bulge aluminum hood, lit up Air-Catcher headlamps, Quad projector headlamps, a Demon front splitter, and Hellcat rear spoiler. It gets Basic Brembo brakes with two-piece 15.4-inch rotors and six-piston front calipers.

The most recent variant presents new 20 x 11-inch “Demon’s Rim” split-five spoke aluminum wheels with 305/35ZR20 Pirelli P-Zero performance tires.

“The new Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody finishes our strongest Dodge muscle car lineup in history,” stated Tim Kuniskis, Dodge car head, in a statement.

“Our brand, engineering and design groups poured a lots of effort into making the new SRT Demon the world’s fastest quarter-mile production vehicle, so now we’re leveraging that knowledge, and a few of those crucial elements and moving them to the new Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody for enhanced performance on the street and a bolder, more aggressive makeover.”

Under the hood the Hellcat Widebody still loads a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8 engine with 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. The V-8 can be coupled to a six-speed handbook or eight-speed automatic transmission.

Along with that, 0-60 mph velocity is enhanced by a massive 0.1 second (3.4 in Widebody vs. 3.5 in standard Hellcat) and the top speed is 195 mph.

It will be offered 15 exterior colors.

Looking at the interior, it gets a performance leather-wrapped flat-bottom, heated steering wheel; Laguna leather performance seats, and new red Hellcat instrument panel badge. SRT Performance Pages are accessible through the most recent 8.4-inch touchscreen with a basic Uconnect 4C navigation system.

Dodge states all consumers who buy the brand-new Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody get one full-day session at Bob Bondurant School of High-performance Driving located in Chandler, Arizona. The session consists of high-performance driving with professional instruction, track time, and lunch.

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody can be ordered from the next month and is anticipated to get here in car dealerships in the fall.
