    Liberty Walk Widebody Dodge Challenger Is Pure Muscle
    [​IMG]
    The Dodge Challenger is already an impressive piece of muscle the second it rolls off the line. In the hands of the guys at Liberty Walk, though, this one has become a real jaw dropper. This car just made its debut at the 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon and it is about as muscle as muscle can possibly get.

    Liberty Walk has done quite a few widebody kits for supercars, but this Dodge Challenger isn’t a supercar. What it got is perfectly befitting of its American muscle heritage: flared fenders and exposed bolts apertures combined with a lower stance that makes it hug the road.

    There are also new wheels and bold, wider tires, as well as spoilers and plenty of additional functional body work that are all part of a full aerodynamic kit. They’ve also modified the suspension so this thing is ready to take on all corners.

    Exact details on what they’ve done to this Dodge Challenger as far as power upgrades and specifications have not been released, but you can bet that when that info comes out it’ll have you wanting to park one of these in your driveway.

    I understand wanting to squeeze more rubber but I don't think I'd be willing to put Jeep Wrangler fenders on it to achieve that goal.

    I agree. I would love to have a widebody, at least half (rear) of a widebody kit, but I want new sheet metal, smoother lines, not some screw on plastic/fiberglass flares like a 4x4. I know I saw a Challenger, widebody, flat black, old-school roots blower sticking through the hood, seems like it was a big block hemi. It was bananas and looked MEAN. There was a video of it, maybe on YouTube.

    I like the Liberty Walk kits on Lambos, Ferraris and the like, but the Challenger, not so much.

    Yeah I'm 50/50 on it, the airbag suspension though seems like a fun toy

    I wonder if they'll come out with a Charger version. I can't imagine it would look as good as it does on the two door Challenger, but any car with as much horsepower as the Hellcat deserves to have an aggressive stance.

    I know there are shops here in California that specialize in wide body modifications, and some of the ones I've seen on the second gen Charger look really nice. It's handing over all that cash for a custom sheet metal creation that's the problem.

    Doesn't look like he took advantage of the wider wheel well space either, with those wheels. I would have went with a different wheel, and had the wheel dimensions custom measured with the fender flairs on the car.

    They need to paint them white like the rest of the car so it is not as obvious that they were attached after the fact.

    Thoughts?
