It goes without saying that we adore the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody. There’s simply nothing like it on the market today, and that goes double for the Charger Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition, which has 717 horsepower, and a limited run of just 501 units. The low volume makes this four-dour muscle car highly collectable, and there’s a dealer down in Florida that thinks it’s collectable enough to charge an additional $25,000 over the window sticker price.

MoparInsiders discovered the listing, and while we aren’t surprised that a dealership is participating in this frowned upon practice, we certainly are amazed by the sheer amount of the markup. For reference, the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition carries an MSRP of $74,140, or $4,495 over the standard 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody with 707 horsepower. This fully loaded 2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition also comes with $5,480 of additional options, and the petty Gas Guzzler Tax to the tune of $2,100 in this case. In total the sticker of this Charger is $83,215. But the dealer is asking a stern $108,215.

If that’s not bad enough, there’s another 2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat Daytona 50th Anniversary with the same level of scalping, and is priced at $106,420 (window sticker price is $81,420). Gross.

The 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody is one of the most capable four-door sedans in the world, with a 0-60 time of 3.6 seconds, a quarter-mile time of 10.6 seconds, a top speed of just under 200 miles per hour, plus the ability to hold .96 g on the skid pad. The Hellcat Widebody actually replaces the standard body style of the Dodge Charger Hellcat in the lineup, and shaves off a couple miles per hour in top speed for the added benefit of more cornering grip and a more intimidating aesthetic than before. When driving it, the added traction of the 4,000+ pound sedan is just as fierce as it is aesthetic.

We expect to see plenty of them in the Detroit area come springtime. But hopefully nobody overpaid for one.
