Hellcat WideBody Challenger or Challenger SRT Demon?

Before you go and spend over $80K for the new Dodge Demon you may want to read this review of the new 2018 Dodge Hellcat WideBody.

One problem with the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is that it looks fairly similar to a regular Challenger. Yes, there are some styling differences between this 707-horsepower monster and other Challengers, but you have to know what you are looking for. No, it is not the worst thing in the world, but some Hellcat owners might want a less-subtle look.

For many people the Demon is a car that does not make much sense, but there is no denying how good it looks. Fortunately Dodge understands this and gives us the option of having a Hellcat that is much more versatile with a very similar aesthetic. It’s no secret that Dodge modeled the wide-body Hellcat after the Demon.

Besides that, with the Demon’s production numbers so limited, the automaker wants to keep the old kitty fresh for the next round of muscle car wars. The 840-HP Demon is a true thing of majesty and a future collector’s item, but relatively few people will ever own one despite Dodge calling it a “production car.”

Visual comparison is in the video below:

It would be pointless comparing the performance of Hellcat Widebody vs SRT Demon seeing as we’re talking about 707 horsepower in the Hellcat against 840 horsepower in the Demon. But those who can live with just, I mean just, 707 hp may prefer the sexier looks of the Widebody. Sure, the Demon is also wide and it is also pretty hot. But there is a certain sleekness to the Hellcat Widebody that is very attractive. Needless to say, the Hellcat is a helluva lot cheaper as well.
