A hero is building a Magnum Hellcat Widebody and I'm in love
The world needs more heroes like JayeFab (@jayefab). This shop saw a gap in the world of wagons and decided to fill it with 707 rampaging stallions. There are few better decisions made in the homebrew swap game than taking a Dodge Magnum and conjoining it with the lifeforce of a Charger Hellcat.
You think they'll even put on the yellow bumper lip protectors?!
We haven't had the honor of the Dodge Magnum since 2008. Long before the Hellcat was a glimmer in the eye of FCA, the best they typically could do for us was a Magnum with the 5.7l Hemi in the form of the R/T trim (SRT8 in low production). We were lucky to get the Dodge longroof and even better off with the Hemi, but we all know if the Magnum were still around they'd be giving us what JayeFab is building in Las Vegas.
JayeFab is apparently going to make a conversion kit for the rest of you, if you so choose to pick up the gauntlet of Magnum/Hellcat glory. Being that the Dodge Magnum can be had cheap in running and maintained form, the hard part won't be the looks. You're going to have to hope some hamfisted Hellcat owner wads up his precious before you'll get anything resembling a good deal on a donor drivetrain.
Go check out their Instagram for more pictures of the build and even enter for a chance to win your own completed kit. A Magnum Hellcat would make the perfect rival for the RS6 Avant? I know you people want this bad - I've seen you love concepts Magnum/Hellcats before!
