The widebody Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is finally here and while it is being called a concept, this car looks production-ready from front to rear. As you can see in the pictures, the widened sedan that was introduced today at SpringFest is obviously one of the cars that appeared on Instagram last week, both in still pictures and video, confirming what we have been reporting over the past two weeks. Pictures began surfacing on social media last night via some folks who were at the event a day early, but today, we bring you a closer look at the unique details of the widebody Charger.

Widened Stance

Of course, the most obvious feature of the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Concept is the flares extending out from each of the wheel openings.

This widened body allows 20x11-inch wheels wrapped in 305mm-wide tires to fit cleanly within the body (per internal fitment requirements) and as we pointed out from the video of one of these cars on the road in Metro Detroit, this Charger has different wheels than the widebody Challenger.

Really, the flares, wheels and tires are the key aspect of this package, but this concept car has more than just unique flares and wheels.

Unique Front Fascia

The front fascia of the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Concept might be the most unique area of the car, as it appears to be heavily revamped compared to a production Hellcat Charger. Although the wild vinyl graphics hide some lines, there are quite a few significant changes up front.

Starting at the top, the upper grille area is slimmer, with a portion of the front fascia extending up into the grille, similar to the design of the SRT Durango. The middle portion of the front fascia appears to have some sculpting changes directly below the grille, with a different shape than the production Hellcat front end and along the bottom, all three openings appear to be different. We have included a picture of a production Hellcat Charger below for comparison.

The two outer vents appear to be larger in every dimension, extending up and in further than the outer vents on the production Hellcat Charger. Moving them inward causes the central opening to decrease in size and as a result, the lower grille opening on the widebody concept has a slimmer form, but it looks as though the central opening might be a bit taller than the current Hellcat Charger production design.

Take note of the fact that there is no seam where the front fascia meets the front wheel flares, but there does appear to be a seam on the trailing side of the front wheels, where the flare meets the fender. It looks like the leading portion of the front wheel flare is molded into the front fascia while the portion of the flare behind the front fascia may be bolted onto the fender.

 

Subtle Rear Changes

Out back, there are more changes, but they aren’t as prominent as the front end differences. The rear fascia does appear to have the trailing portion of the rear wheel flare molded-in and it looks as though the rear-facing vents behind the wheels are larger on the Charger Widebody Concept, but the rest of the rear fascia appears to be similar to the current production Charger Hellcat.

The most noticeable feature of the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Concept rear end is the spoiler that extends sharply from the trailing edge of the trunklid.

This blade-style spoiler looks larger than any of the spoilers offered on the current production Charger and Charger owners online are already looking to swap this piece onto their own cars.

Flare Connection

There has been a great deal of “controversy” over the widebody design of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the fact that the composite flares are all bolted onto the metal body.

As mentioned above, it looks as though the portions of the wheel flares that connect to the composite front and rear fascia are molded onto the body. The portions of the flares over metal body panels, including the area behind the front wheels and above the rear wheels, appear to be bolted onto the body, but with the fairly dramatic changes to the front end, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Concept has more unique aspects than the widebody Challenger.

Powerplant

Unfortunately, there has been no word as to what is under the hood. We are led to believe that it is a 707-horsepower Hellcat Hemi, but we don’t know that for sure. This car was built to showcase the exterior design and to get input from the modern Mopar community, so the engine isn’t as important as the body, but we expect that when this car comes to production, it will have at least 707 horsepower.

Finally, we want to extend a special thanks to the people who were kind enough to send detailed pictures from SpringFest so that the Mopar community can get a good, thorough look at the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Concept.
