Revving up anticipation for the 2025 Dodge Charger (LB), Czech-based customization shop Waido Kits has given the new two-door Charger a makeover. Scheduled to debut later this year, the new Charger is set to redefine the “Brotherhood of Muscle” as a hatchback coupe, a departure from the modern-day Charger’s sedan roots.
Waido Kits, known for its widebody expertise, has re-envisioned the new Charger with a sleek Widebody kit. Sporting a distinctive duckbill-style trunk lid spoiler and massive alloys wrapped in low-profile tires, the new kit looks to broaden the sleek lines of the Charger two-door. Adding flair to the e-muscle car are eye-catching red brake calipers and a gloss-black chin spoiler, giving the Charger an undeniably aggressive presence, further accentuated by what appears to be lowering springs.
Dodge has proven that their performance muscle car lineup does well with a Widebody model, and the Waido Kit looks to make the new Charger even more muscular. Based on the adaptable new STLA Large architecture, the next-generation Dodge Charger will be offered with both internal combustion engine (ICE) and battery-electric (BEV) powertrains.
While not much is known other than there will eventually be a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter HURRICANE I6 power under the hood for the ICE model, Dodge is putting all of its attention at the moment on its new BEV powertrains.
The BEV model will feature two 400-volt models, the Charger Daytona 340 and 440. Power for the Daytona models will range between 456 horsepower and 590 horsepower. An 800-volt “Banshee” model will follow, rumored to produce a baseline of 885 horsepower.
But we wouldn’t doubt that Dodge will have Widebody models planned for both the Charger two-door and four-door models.
Nevertheless, we expect other companies to pursue Waido Kits’ with their take on a Widebody kit for the new Charger. But so far, the new Charger’s design has a lot of potential for the aftermarket. Just too bad it doesn’t have a HEMI® under the hood.
