Click above for high-res gallery of the CDC Group 2 Widebody Challenger

While the Chevy Camaro is technically the Official Vehicle of SEMA, the Dodge Challenger may upstage it with a parking lot full of custom iterations including a 560-hp convertible, speedster, 900-hp Super Challenger, official Targa and Blacktop concepts and, perhaps the most exciting, a Viper-powered variant.

The latest and perhaps last custom Challenger we'll be showing you before SEMA starts on Tuesday is from Classic Design Concepts. Called the Group 2 Widebody Challenger, its claim to fame are extra wide fenders from and rear to accommodate 20x10-inch front and 20x11.5-inch three piece wheels wearing 275 and 315 series Pirelli tires. The Group 2 kit also includes a stainless mesh grille and aluminum hood with CDC's cold air "shaker" system.

CDC will have two versions on hand in Las Vegas next week: a white R/T widebody and this car, a black SRT8 version. The latter features a Vortec supercharger good for 560 horsepower, Pypes Performance cat-back exhaust, KW adjustable coil-over suspension and Baer brakes with 15-inch rotors and 6-piston calipers at all four corners.

We'll definitely bring your more pics of the CDC Group 2 Widebody Challenger and its white R/T brother, as well as all the other custom Challengers, from the show floor of the Las Vegas Convention Center starting Tuesday.

      I thought the Challenger ( and the Charger and every other model except for Jeep ) was being killed off by GM/Chrysler/Ford merger?

      Why show a concept for a car that is no longer going to be built?
        • 6 Years Ago
        All merger talk is still Hypothetical. Nobody knows what is going to happen yet. And the Government just shot down GM's request for money to buy Chrysler so the merger is dead for the time being.

      Yuck! First Challenger I've seen I don't like. That's terrible.

      Because even at 4000+ lbs, it's just not wide enough.

      DO NOT WANT!!!

      this car was looking good until my eyes were drawn to the back and that hideous HEMI graphic on the side. Can no one at SEMA bring something that doesn't scream TACKY!?!?

      you misspelled i think

      Called the Group 2 Widebody Challenger, its claim to fame are extra wide fenders from (FRONT) and rear to accommodate 20x10-inch front and 20x11.5-inch three piece wheels wearing 275 and 315 series Pirelli tires.

      why do they hate my eyes!
      • 6 Years Ago
      Eww, really? It looks like a 16 year old made this car with random parts from "that section" in Autozone.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Humm, sorry but no. This look hideous.

        I think in general the Challenger doesn't stand a chance with the Camaro in terms of looks or the Mustang. It's very plain.

        The Camaro GS Racecar Concept in a couple of posts earlier was just pure sex-beautiful!

        Looks like a tack-on bodykit.
      • 6 Years Ago
      The white one is awesome! I'd remove all those stickers though, I don't need no stinkin' badges advertising for folks!

      What makes you think it's cheap? It's just another version of what you can do with this car. I never thought for a moment I was looking at a Camero. There never gonna look this good. Shaker setup looks great. There's nothing cheap about the Dodge Challenger.

      I don't hate it, but it could have been implemented a lot better than this.

      The rear looks cheaply done.
