2018 Hellcat Widebody

This is how the car should've come from the onset. 305 rear tires for more grip. Unfortunately, it costs ~$7k more than a standard Hellcat.

Yeah, the Hellcat definitely should have had these to begin with. Nice to see decent performance gains with just the wider tires.

Still an awesome car. But is this worth a $7K upgrade? Fenders and wheels/tires?

uggh, I hate that truck fender flares now are considered widebody. So tacky and ricey. Next factory will be "stancing" them.

way nicer than the bland straight-lined body, but the hood(& power upgrades) of the demon is icing on the cake!

i read that the deamon tires/wheels were to wide for the assembly line, so the cars went down the line with different tires and wheels, then went to another facility where the 'correct' tires and wheels are put on. If it's the same with this car, that extra step is contributing to the up charge

I like it better then the standard hellcat, and credit to the dodge boys for trying to create 'new' products with no money

Hideous, looks like those flares on riced out Hondas, might as well as given them exposed rivets. JMHO

Dodge and Chevy are doing it right, albeit in seemingly different directions of performance (Dodge more straight line and Chevy more well rounded). The Mustang always seems a step behind and the Euro Stang is ugly.
