Watch Dodge Challenger Scat Pack Widebody Reach 174 MPH On Autobahn

How does it feel to be the middle child? Only middle kids really know this answer to it, but it’s probably not unlike the Dodge Challenger Scat Pack Widebody. Below are the V6 models buyers are flocking to. Above is the dreaded Challenger SRT Hellcat which gets all the glory. The Scat Pack falls in between – overpriced for budget-conscious buyers, but for those with the cash, why not just take the Supercharged Hellkitty a step further?

This new video from Shmee150 brings some well-deserved attention to the Challenger’s middle kid. To jog your memory, the Scat Pack is a muscular powerhouse in its own right, developing 485 horsepower (362 kilowatts) from its naturally aspirated Hemi V8 engine. This is not a 6.2-liter Hellcat mill without a compressor, it runs a 6.4-liter engine displacing 392 cubic inches (hence its nickname Scat Pack 392) with a lazy redline and prolific horsepower at low end, just like a real muscle car should be.

In that case, lazy does not mean slow in any way. The Scat Pack can hit 100 km / h in under four seconds and, with the 485 ponies engaged under the hood, it can exceed 170 km / h. This speed is confirmed in this video, as the big muscle car tackles endless sections of the German Autobahn with considerable haste. Reaching 155 mph – the speed at which many cars are electronically limited – is easily achievable. But the Challenger doesn’t have a limiter, and as a result, the muscular muscle machine peaks at 174 mph. Not too shabby for a vehicle with a starting price under $ 40,000.

This price is for the standard Scat Pack. The car featured here is the Widebody Scat Pack and there’s no denying the menacing presence that comes from the flared fenders and the wider stance. This car starts at $ 45,999, so it’s still great value for those looking for straight-line speed. Even with the wider track, the video shows the heavy Challenger’s tendency to roll around corners.

Still, there aren’t many new cars available that will run well above 170 mph for less than $ 50,000. Maybe we should start paying more attention to the middle siblings.
