Dodge Magnum Gets The SRT Hellcat Widebody Treatment

Tuning / Comments

All it's missing is a proper Hellcat engine swap.

The Dodge Magnum hasn't been in production since 2008, which means it never got the Hellcat treatment. And that's a crying shame because Dodge lacks a high-performance wagon in its current lineup. But if you happen to still own the Magnum, you can at least pretend it was given the high-performance Hellcat treatment. Nevada-based tuning shop JayeFab will happily sell you a styling kit that makes the Magnum's front end look like a Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.

And now the tuner is working on a more ambitious styling package that effectively turns the Charger-based wagon into the Dodge Magnum SRT Hellcat Widebody we've been cruelly deprived of.

The styling package adds an aggressive body kit designed to replicate the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody. Impressively, the panels are being made by the tuner completely from scratch instead reshaping existing Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody fenders, for the Magnum so a lot of work has clearly gone into this project. Sadly, the upgrade is cosmetic only, so our fantasies of a Hellcat-powered, 707-horsepower Dodge Magnum haven't been turned into a reality yet.

Whoever this is for, we're guessing that they don't just want to stop after a body kit upgrade.

The Dodge Magnum can still pack a punch, however, as Dodge offered a Magnum SRT-8 with the same 6.1-liter Hemi engine as the Chrysler 300C that produced 425 horsepower, along with upgraded brakes, suspension, and wheels.

The project hasn't been completed yet, but photos posted on the tuner's Instagram page show how the project is evolving. When the kit is completed, it will be compatible for Dodge Magnums built for the 2005-2008 model years. The kit also bolts onto the Magnum, meaning no modifications are required for the donor wagon. Preorders for the Dodge Magnum SRT Hellcat Widebody conversion are already available, starting at $3,250 for the fender flares and $5,800 for the standard conversion kit. For now, this is the closest we're ever going to get to a Dodge SRT Hellcat Widebody wagon.
