Yesterday we brought you a look at what appears to be the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody in spy shots , along with what looks like an image from an FCA presentation discussing the widened sport sedan. Today, we bring you the first look at the widebody Charger on the open road, captured by an Instagrammer from Metro Detroit.


This footage was posted to Instagram by user “ZL1_dre_2c”, who was driving through Southfield, Michigan when this oddly decorated Dodge Charger appeared on Telegraph Road. Fortunately, he had his phone ready to capture the flashy sedan as it rolled past, giving us our first look at the widebody Charger in motion.


Now, the video is very short and there is music playing over it, so we cannot hear the Dodge Charger as it passes. This is clearly one of the cars that we discussed from spy shots yesterday, with the distinct SRT graphics and the flares extending out over the wheels. There are no badges, so we don’t know for sure that this is a Hellcat car, but it has all of the other physical attributes of the supercharged Charger including the massive Brembo brakes.


One key detail that can be taken away from this short video is that this Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody does not appear to be wearing the 20x11-inch wheels that are showcased on the widebody Hellcat Challenger. If you pause the video, these wheels look more like a variation of the split-spoke design that is offered on the Charger Daytona. However, those wheels are only 9.5-inches wide and a wheel of that width wouldn’t fill out the flares, so it looks as though the widebody Charger will have a unique wheel design – at least in concept form.


As a reminder, before publishing those pictures of the widebody Charger, we reached out to Dodge and a representative provided the following comment:
We are taking a Charger design concept to Spring Fest to gauge feedback from the huge Dodge Charger, Challenger and Chrysler 300 enthusiast base that attends the California event each year.

While we still don’t know for sure what Dodge will show off this weekend at SpringFest, there is no question that the widebody Charger is nearing its formal introduction. We think that the “Charger design concept” that will be on display will be one of these flashy widebody cars, but we don’t know what will be under the hood. Like most other Mopar fans, we expect that it will be powered by a supercharged Hemi, but we will have to wait to find out whether it has 707, 717 or 797 horsepower.
