Then Everything Went Black: Limited Dodge Charger Hellcat Gets Dark

Dodge is spicing up the 707-horsepower Charger SRT Hellcat — a car that [sarcasm font] definitely needs additional spiciness — for 2019 with the limited-edition Octane Edition for the full-size performance sedan. Available with only Pitch Black or White Knuckle exterior paint, the appearance package will only be available for the 2019 model year and will add $1,495 to the Hellcat’s $68,740 starting price (including a destination charge).

What does that extra 1,500 bucks get you?

  • Full-length black racing stripes with red accents on the outside edges
  • Blacked-out badging on the grille, fender and deck lid
  • A black rear spoiler
  • Black 20-inch wheels that first appeared on the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 (we currently have one of those Challengers in our test fleet at’s Chicago headquarters and can vouch that the wheels look good). The wheels also have “knurled-bead seats to minimize tire slip on the wheel under extreme acceleration” — which is a thing you have to consider when your car has more than 700 hp
  • Unique Octane Red brake calipers
  • SRT Performance seats with a houndstooth insert, red stitching and a stitched Hellcat logo
  • Additional red stitching throughout the cabin
  • Red seat belts
  • Gloss-black and additional dark interior accent pieces

The Octane­­­­­ Edition package won’t make the Charger SRT Hellcat any faster but, uh, did we really want that? (Pssst … yes. Make a Demon or Redeye version, Dodge. Delay redesigning the car for another model year or two; it’ll be fine.)
