As a wise person told me (and he owns a blackish R/T model), when you buy an "upgraded" Dodge Charger or Chrysler 300, you're paying for the engine, while everything else is left stock.

This is one of the few cars like that. Only the Holden Commodore, Holden Caprice, Ford Falcon, Jaguar XF, and Maserati Ghibli are also like that.

The 300 and Ghibli both are the "luxury" versions of the Charger (all riding on the same platform as the aging Challenger), the XF is the "luxury" version of the Falcon (the latest gens both ride on the same platform as the PREVIOUS-gen Mustang), and the Caprice is the "luxury" version of the Commodore (both riding on the same platform as the PREVIOUS-gen Camaro). Regardless, they still compete in the same E-segment family sedan body style category.

With cars like the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, BMW M5, Mercedes E63 AMG, Audi RS6 and RS7 however, you need to change most of the design to fit the engine inside. Those are full-fat sports sedans however, not really muscle cars.

The Maserati Quattroporte Trofeo and Porsche Panamera (of the GTS/Turbo S varieties) are in-betweener exotic sedans, all being both E- and F-segment. Those two adapt the sporty enhancements of the M8/Alpina B8 and GT63 AMG, while leaving only the size and comfort of the Alpina B7/M760Li and S63/S65 AMG.

Just because the Dodge Charger Widebody runs similar or equal times around most circuits to a supercar from the early or mid 2000s doesn't mean the haters who call this thing a "boat" will stop hating. The Hellcat Widebody (and especially the Redeye Widebody [both]) show HUGE improvements over the regular Hellcat. Actually the four-door Widebody is better than the Challenger variant since while the flares on the Challenger are a temporary add-on for the customer to take them off via a mechanic's shop, the Charger's flare stay glued there permanently and CANNOT be taken off.

The good thing is that the Charger Redeye Widebody is very close to the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing and the BMW M5 CS around most tracks - despite weighing much more, despite having a longer wheelbase, and despite relying on an outdated platform.

My estimated lap times
Motor Trend Figure-8: 24.3 sec @ 0.94 G
Nürburgring Nordschleife: 7:42
Top Gear Test Track (Power Lap): 1:23

How I estimated these lap times

FIGURE-8:
((900/(30/20)x(2162x2.20462262))/0.014)/650))x.88x.88

88% maximum slope angle, maximum lateral acceleration (theoretically) 1.50 G;

0.76+1.50 = 2.26 G, divided by 2 = 1.13 G

0.76+1.13 = 1.89 G, divided by 2 = 0.94 G

NORDSCHLEIFE:
((20600m/(300km/h/(220m*0.3048m))x(2162kg/823hp)/1.50g)x0.0095x1.25

This could improve to a 7:23 on semi-slicks (but not drag radials).

POWER LAP:
((4602lb+75kg)/823hp)x((1.75mi)x12)x.88x.8

As powerful as the Hellcat Redeye is, it is a powerlifter but no bodybuilder. Interestingly, it does brake better from 300-0km/h (@ 220m) than the BMW M5 Competition (232m), the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing (251m), and the Mercedes-AMG E63S 4MATIC+ (252m). With that being said, it certainly does lose to smaller cars on most tracks, such as even the Audi RS3 and Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition.
