The configurator tool for the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody is live on Dodge.com, allowing us all to build and price our ideal extra-grippy Mopar muscle car ? and to begin working on a plan to buy the 707 hp machine.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is the most powerful muscle car on sale in America today, but with the stock 275mm-wide rear tires, traction is tough on a hard launch. The new Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody addresses that issue, adding 305mm-wide tires at all four corners, improving grip on a hard launch and in the corners.
Adding those big, fat tires wasn?t as simple as just mounting up bigger tires on the Hellcat Challenger. To meet internal wheel/tire fitment requirements, the SRT team added composite wheel opening flares, widening the body by several inches and giving the team the space that they needed to install the big rubber out back
