THE PLACES TO BE IN 2018

Robb Report (USA) - - Features -

Our an­nual travel is­sue high­lights 21 des­ti­na­tions de­liv­er­ing un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ences, from Reyk­javík—Ice­land’s

Group raised plenty of eye­brows re­cently when it de­buted the 2018 Dodge Chal­lenger SRT De­mon; but the di­vi­sion also de­liv­ered an­other spirted speedster—the 2018 Dodge Chal­lenger SRT Hellcat Wide­body.

Since its de­but in 2015, the Chal­lenger

SRT Hellcat has proved to be more pop­u­lar than the brand an­tic­i­pated, with 26,000 ex­am­ples sold. Only in the area of han­dling did the car leave drivers want­ing more.

De­mon, equipped it with 11-inch wheels and larger tires, re­tuned its sus­pen­sion, and in­tro­duced elec­tronic power steer­ing. The re­sult is an Amer­i­can track star—with im­proved lat­eral grip—ca­pa­ble of reach­ing 195 mph and, as it turns out, com­pet­ing in the 2018 Robb Report Car of the Year event. — S.T.
