Hellcat Is For Children

Canadian auto writer Brendan McAleer recently visited Dulles for a Virginia backroad test drive of the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.

The Hellcat is, what, Dodge's AMG? Dodge's Msport? Dodge's Hemi? Oh wait. Anyway, the Charger is a 4-door sedan outfitted with a 6.2L Hemi producing 707hp, and all the performance and trimmings that fit within that badboy aura.

This includes, incredibly, two booster seats, upholstered in matched saddle-stitch leather.

Which is surely a publicist stunt, the junket equivalent of hardwood flooring in the concept car at the auto show. I believe they were inspired by this unfortunate setup: a mis-matched booster seat in a Ferrari FF.

Those are just standard Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 car seats fitted with custom leather slipcovers. The skirt around the bottom seems to cover the car seat's plastic foot. The slipcovers look very well-made. If anyone ever sees anything remotely like this in a real-world Hellcat, please let us know
