I watched some of his earlier progress videos. I would be driving one if they offered it from the factory. I traded a 2010 300C SRT8 on my Hellcat and it was a great car.

You really would rock the 300C look over the Challenger?

Sweet!!!!! Do not like that hood on the 300, doesn鈥檛 fit the body lines imo. Otherwise, badass car!

That鈥檚 pretty cool wonder why Chrysler didn鈥檛 jump on the hellcat bandwagon all the time.

My understanding is basically that the decision was made to stop competing with the Charger in that regard. Although, I still think it was the dumbest idea ever.

And you should look up Junkyard Dave.... he's building a custom Charger/Magnum Redeye Widebody with AWD using a Trackhawk setup... yeah, it's killer...

I've seen his build. Isn't he on here? It's plum crazy I think?

Agreed, the 300 was the more luxurious version of the Charger. I think it still had its place and I honestly loved the body lines of the last 300S model. I think the issue with the high end models is that they didn't sell all that well, the 300 SRT wasn't a huge seller.

I can't get behind anything with the Magnum, that vehicle ranks right up there with the Pontiac Aztek to me.

I remember seeing the black SRT 300 they had in Breaking Bad, and loved it. I dig the body lines but it does not even come close to the Challenger for me. I get the aesthetic of having a bit of luxury and speed but they still just look like a knock off Bentley, and growing up near Baltimore, anyone who had a 300c had to constantly watch their back because those cars were stolen ALOT

It does look a little like a poor man's Bentley but that's what made them popular. Can't really compare it to a Challenger though since its a 2 door, but I think the 300 styling holds its own against the Charger.

I鈥檝e always said they should dabble in a AWD Charger hellcat/RE. Leave the Challenger for the pure muscle feel RWD and put a manual in any engine combo offered if a buyer wants. Yet the charger, add the awd option. I think they missed this opportunity personally. It would appeal to two groups and separate the models a bit more.

I had a 2012 r/t ChargerAWD and loved the car but was always wanting more power. Fast forward a few years/cars later I was in a HC for power.

Wonder if they will ever build the unicorn awd Charger with big V8 power. Would be a game changer.

Funny I am actually watching another guy swap a HC into a 2002 range single cab Dodge Dakota. Took the entire guts from a wrecked charger and is putting everything into the truck. It鈥檚 actually really cool.

Yeah, I follow that guy too on Youtube.... loved my Dakotas and would have given anything for a clubcab Hellcat powered one... I remember seeing a guy do a Viper swap in one...

And I dont think we'll ever see a unicorn AWD Charger.... at least not Hellcat powered..
