Hands-on with Rocket League’s Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

On Wednesday (May 17), Psyonix added the Fast & Furious Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat to Rocket League’s limited-time DLC deals for 1000 in-game credits. They also revived the previous Fast & Furious 4 car pack from the previous film in the Furious-Verse, F9, and brought it back to the store for 2400 in-game credits.

This particular 2023 Hellcat is similar to the one Dominic Toretto, aka Dom, will be driving in the upcoming Fast-X movie, which hits theaters at midnight tonight (May 19). If you’ve seen any of the Fast & Furious movies besides 2 Fast 2 Furious and Tokyo Drift, you know that Dom has a soft spot for the American muscle that Dodge delivers.

On Thursday (May 18th) I downloaded the new Fast & Furious content to my PlayStation 5 to see what it was all about. This isn’t really going to go into much depth, but here’s what you should know before you buy.

TRY IT

With a whip spin, somersault and a few pirouettes in the Soc Car title, there really wasn’t anything new to report. The Dodge Charger Hellcat’s engine certainly purrs, but it often gets lost in the chaos of soccer with cars. Simply put, there’s really no benefit to having this content other than it looks and sounds cool.

When it’s outfitted like this, with the “Reel Life” decal, the Hellcat wheels and nothing more (maybe the Burnout Boost), you kind of get the feeling of driving a real car. It’s the right shape, badge, and color, and certainly looks like something Dom would jump right into.

It’s iconic, maybe not as iconic to me as Brian’s Skyline (my introduction to the series was 2 Fast 2 Furious, sorry!), and even if you don’t care about the franchise it’s still a cool looking car to get into you can get in are a user of the Dominus Hitbox, which we’ve learned is one of the most popular in the title.

ADJUSTMENT

By removing the Reel Life decal, this car can be painted in your favorite colors with decals such as Alameda Twin, Flames, Hellcat, Sinclair, Stripes and Wheelman. Also, there is no decal that gives the Dodge Charger a single color of your choice.

This body can also be combined with other wheels of your choice. You can also add a topper and antenna. The only thing it’s limited to is the engine sound, which is the Fast & Furious Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat sound.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
