Yep, I modified my '86 with an intercooler (had to cut a huge hole in the hood and then install a cover) and new CPU - got a whopping 176 HP out of it (146 stock).

Move over Ford Explorer Interceptors because there's a new sheriff in town. Utah-based Armormax has revealed its latest armored vehicle, and it's none other than the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.

First spotted by Carscoops, the Charger SRT Hellcat boasts various armored protection levels depending on the customer's wants, but there's one feature that really grabs attention: available all-wheel drive. Of course, Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles has never offered AWD for its Hellcat models from the factory.

Armormax told Motor Authority the company can outfit the bulletproof Charger SRT Hellcat with AWD as part of an in-house conversion process. Customers simply check the box and the company will ensure 707 horsepower finds its way to all four wheels rather than just the rears. That may make a decommissioned Armormax Charger SRT Hellcat a highly desirable used car in the future.

The company also installs police-spec lighting, ballistic armored glass, a push bar, and run-flat tires. The bulletproof paneling is available in B4, B5, B6, and B7 ballistic protection levels. Carbon-fiber decals complete the sinister package that surely no criminal will want to encounter. Protection is also present for the Hellcat's battery, radiator, fuel tank, and ECU. It's unclear how much weight the bulletproofing adds, but the 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine will certainly be able to handle it.

Other trick options Armormax offers for include bomb blankets and an exterior listening device for covert operations.

Pricing is on an individual quote basis, but we'd imagine the final tally easily crests $100,000, especially for those that opt for AWD. The 2018 Charger SRT Hellcat starts at $65,345 before Armormax gets its hands on it.

Maybe a municipality or two out there can buy this one and not get in trouble.

Rumors of a widebody Charger sedan being seen on the streets seem to have been accurate, as Dodge finally showed the car in public. The Widebody Charger was displayed during SoCal LX Spring Fest, a festival that is, you guessed it, all about LX-chassis MoPars. Technically FCA is calling the car a “concept” but it is quite clearly ready for prime time production.

Dodge’s modus operandi lately has been more and bigger and bigger and more. Throw more power at a chassis until it’s too much, then make it wider with more tire until it’s under control again. Lather, rinse, repeat. It would make a lot of sense for Dodge SRT to offer the widened fenders on the super sedan, being that the company commands a $6,000 premium for the Challenger Widebody models.

How long until we see a Charger Widebody Redeye? Fuck it, give us an 800 horsepower family sedan Dodge. You silly? Send it.

That looks pretty badass, my brother told me about it yesterday.

He hasn't even had his Charger for even a year yet and he already had the itch when he saw the widebody but he's gonna hold off. $6k for the widebody option!

Give it a few months. Best dealers here for discounts are Orange Coast Dodge and Huntington Dodge. They have new hellcats on the lot listed on their site at $5g -$7g off all the time. And its not a BS fishing scheme. I've got all my Mopars/Jeeps from Orange Coast...when I got the Durango they had it advertised as $6k off...I called them, got that price plus 0% financing. They flatbedded the car to me the next day with he paperwork to sign.

Yah when the time comes, it is either this or the new M440i GC or the S5 Sportback...

It will all come down to the pricing...

Its a not a new or refreshed body style. But I bet you the wide bodies that made will sell. Its not a high volume trim.
