Dodge has rolled out a new flavor of the SRT Hellcat just to prove to fans that it hasn’t been forgotten in the face of the new and awesome Demon. The new Hellcat flavor is the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody and it sells for a MSRP of $71,495 including gas guzzler tax but not counting destination. The Widebody gets the fender flares from the Demon adding 3.5-inches of width to the car compared to the standard SRT Hellcat.
The Widebody rides on 20×11 Devil’s Rim split five spoke aluminum wheels. The meats on those rims are 305/35ZR20 P-Zero performance tires rather than the drag radials that you can get with the Demon.
Dodge says that the Hellcat Widebody was about 2 seconds per lap faster than the normal Hellcat on a 1.7-mile track. That equates to about 13 car lengths after a single lap. The Widebody also gets standard EPS steering with SRT Drive modes and keeps the 707hp 6.2L V8. Orders start in July with cars landing in showrooms in Q3 2017.
