Hagan to Debut 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Funny Car

Matt Hagan’s 11,000-horsepower NHRA Funny Car already goes big, but it’s getting an even more aggressive makeover just in time for the Dodge Mile-High NHRA Nationals Presented by Pennzoil. Hagan will debut a new 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody graphics package with a flared-out feel at the Denver area event, scheduled to take place July 19-21, 2019.

Dodge//SRT and Mopar took the wraps off Hagan’s new Mopar-powered 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody NHRA Funny Car today during a pre-race press conference at iconic Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colorado. His special Funny Car graphics uniquely recreate the look of the production Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody vehicle’s new, wider integrated fender flares, which add 3.5 inches of body width to the production vehicle, creating an even more aggressive, planted stance. Hagan will carry the Widebody Package “flare” graphics on his Funny Car for the remainder of the 2019 season.

The Widebody Package, first announced by Dodge//SRT in late June, is standard on the Charger SRT Hellcat and also available on the Dodge Charger Scat Pack. Powered by the 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat V-8 engine, the production version of the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody boasts a best-in-class 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque and delivers a top speed of 196 miles per hour (mph), maintaining its reign as the most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world.

Dealers will be able to order 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody and Scat Pack Widebody models this fall, and new Charger Widebody models will start arriving in Dodge//SRT dealerships in early 2020.

“NHRA fans are passionate about power and performance, so we decided to transform Matt Hagan’s Funny Car into a HEMI-powered showcase for our new Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “At Dodge, we push the envelope, but even we couldn’t get this one approved, so for now Matt Hagan has the only Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody that has more than 707 horsepower.”

“Last year, I had the honor of debuting the Mopar Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Funny Car body at Denver, and it’s cool to be able to follow that up this year by revealing new Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody graphics,” said Hagan, a two-time NHRA Funny Car champion, who has raced in a Dodge Funny Car for his entire 10-year-plus career. “The graphics really mimic the flared appearance of the Charger Widebody, and I think fans are going to dig the look. It’s great having a sponsor like Dodge//SRT, a brand that is really committed to using NHRA to reach out to the performance enthusiasts who fuel our sport.”
