The fastest sedan in the world doesn’t have a three or four-letter acronym, nor does it have a two-word name, and is a Dodge.
The Charger Hellcat is, with its 707hp and 196 mph (300 kph) top speed, the fastest three-box sedan in the world, as of 2019. The 0-60 mph (0-96 kph) sprint is achieved in 3.9 seconds and the model deserved a better look. That’s when the Widebody came.
The Widebody Hellcat Charger was first shown in 2019 and it has a mean look as standard for the Hellcat version, but the body kit is also available to order on the Charger Scat Pack. The wide body kit adds 3.5 inches (88.9 mm) to the width of the car, creating a more aggressive stance with a new set of fender flares, which are making room for a set of wheels with Pirelli 305/35ZR20 tires. Brembo six-piston front calipers with two-piece front brake rotors and unique suspension tuning with Bilstein three-mode adaptive damping combine to improve handling performance. The whole package fits the image for the 707 hp four-door muscle car perfectly.
A new, important improvement is the new EPS (electronic power steering), installed for the first time in the Charger. The Hellcat Widebody showcased the transition from a straight-line acceleration muscle car to a real sports sedan. The Hellcat Widebody can be more aggressive on the curves and can brake in a shorter distance. It was made to compete against European power-sedans, with a little help from the Italians, but still following the American way with a V8 6.2 supercharged gasoline engine.
