The Hellcat, as we know it, is the badge used for souped-up Dodge cars. The Hellcat badge is affixed to those vehicles which are tweaked for more power over the SRT versions. So far, only the Charger SRT and the Challenger SRT have been seen donning the demonized character with the Hellcat tweaks.
Recently, the Chrysler 300 has been spotted with similar tweaks. Here we have the exclusive spy shots of the vehicle. The changes are subtle, but a keen eye will be able to spot the extra wide 315mm tyres sticking out of the wheel arches for better grip, and the Brembo brake calipers fitted to the vehicle for added stopping power.
There are no cosmetic upgrades visible in the pictures, but the front bumper has been upgraded with a LED daytime running light.
The underpinnings of the Chrysler 300 and the Charger are similar to the Charger Hellcat, with its 6.2-litre V8 which produces 707bhp. Right now, it seems slightly far-fetched to think that the Chrysler would ever build a Hellcat version of the 300, but these changes indicate otherwise. A much potent version of the Chrysler SRT is being anticipated.
The Chrysler 300 SRT went out of production in January 2015 in the American market, but the car is still available in the Middle East and Australia. The launch of the Hellcat for the Australian and the Middle Eastern market would give them access to a 707bhp Dodge.
