Dodge Charger Juiced Gets V10 Viper Power: 2012 SEMA Show Preview

Dodge Charger Juiced Gets V10 Viper Power: 2012 SEMA Show Preview

Yet another vehicle previewed by Mopar ahead of the 2012 SEMA Show is its Dodge Charger Juiced project, a modern-day take on a custom street rod.

Powering the custom Charger Juiced is a Mopar V10 crate engine borrowed from the Viper, giving it 650-hp of pure fun. But given everyone’s concerns with emissions these days, Mopar went the extra mile to tone down the emissions on its project to remain eco-friendly. Adding to the swapped engine is a Mopar cold air intake and cat-back exhaust system.

Handling suspension duties is a Mopar lowering kit that gives the Charger a lowered stance and better handling capabilities.

The exterior of the charger has been refinished in a custom Metallic ‘Copperhead’ shade with matte black graphics to contrast. Mopar outfit the Charger with its own chin spoiler and prototype hood while the roof gets a darker shade of the exterior paint. 20-inch wheels trimmed in matte black with a ‘Copperhead’ stripe finish off the aesthetics.

Onto the interior, Mopar gave the Charger Katzkin leather seats that were done in black with ‘Copperhead’ accents. The two-tone matte black and ‘Copperhead’ theme can be seen throughout the cabin.

Check back when the 2012 SEMA Show kicks off for live coverage of all the Mopar 2012 SEMA projects.
