On Wednesday (17th May), Psyonix released the Fast & Furious Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat into Rocket League‘s limited time DLC offerings for 1000 in-game credits. They also revived the previous Fast & Furious 4 car bundle from the previous movie in the Furious-verse, F9, and added them back to the store for 2400 in-game credits.

This particular 2023 Hellcat is akin to the one that Dominic Toretto, a.k.a. Dom, will be driving in the upcoming Fast X movie that releases at midnight tonight (19th May). If you’ve watched any of the Fast & Furious movies besides 2 Fast 2 Furious and Tokyo Drift, you’ll know Dom has a thing for the American Muscle that Dodge offers.

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

TRYING IT OUT

Taking the whip for a spin… and a flip, and a few car pirouettes in the soc-car title, there really wasn’t anything new to report on. The Dodge Charger Hellcat engine surely purrs, but it often gets lost in the chaos that is football with cars. Simply put, there’s really no benefit to having this content besides that it looks and sounds cool.

When equipped as is, with the “Reel Life” Decal, the Hellcat Wheels and nothing more (maybe the Burnout Boost), you do kind of get a sense of driving the real-world car. It’s properly shaped and badged and colorized, and surely looks like something Dom would jump into in a heartbeat.

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

CUSTOMIZATION

By removing the Reel Life Decal, this car can be painted your favorite colors with Decals such as Alameda Twin, Flames, Hellcat, Sinclair, Stripes and Wheelman. Also, no Decal makes the Dodge Charger a single color of your choosing.

This Car Body can also be combined with other wheels of your choosing. You can also put a Topper and an Antenna on. The only thing that it’s limited to is the Engine Audio, which is the Fast & Furious Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat sound.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat costs 1000 in-game credits on Rocket League. If you don’t have in-game credits, they can be purchased with real money.

Those prices cost £3.75/$4.99 for 500 credits, £7.50/$9.99 for 1,100 credits, £18.75/$24.99 for 3,000 credits, or £37.50/$49.99 for 6,500 credits.

HOW LONG IS IT AVAILABLE?
