Here’s some more American-tuned muscle that will be making its way to the SEMA show floor next month. Built by CULT Energy Drink, this Dodge Challenger SRT8 sports a menacing flat black profile, one-off custom fabricated widebody kit and a supercharged 6.1-liter V8 HEMI.

Clearly the goal of CULT was to get plenty of attention with their Challenger project, and getting these awesome photos done by Webb Bland is a good start. We’re loving the smooth widebody conversion, menacing red lights, massive brakes and the big blower popping out of the hood.

We don’t have many other details on the car, but we’ll be sure to check it out in person at SEMA 2010. One thing’s for sure, we’re pretty impressed by the work on the vehicle from bumper to bumper, and how not a single piece of the car seems gaudy or tacky. It’s all very tastefully done and clearly the fabrication work is high quality. Hell, even the minimal sticker placement by CULT is acceptable.

Check out our SEMA Preview here, which will be updated with live 2010 SEMA Show coverage starting November 2nd.

We’ve been hearing through the rumor mill that Tjin Edition would be pulling off a trifecta of vehicles this year and so far we have seen the Fortune Motorsports / Tjin Edition Honda CR-Z and the Universal Technical Institute / Tjin Edition Ford Fiesta. Rounding off their SEMA projects is a brand new 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT with an impressive list of modifications to really showcase what the potential of the new Mustang. Teaming up with Real Auto Works in Long Beach, California, the Tjin Edition team has their work cut out for them the upcoming months.

Once again Tjin has only released a teaser of what the finished project will look like, but Neil Tjin was nice enough to disclose some info on it. Under the hood, the Mustang will get a Vortech supercharger. But the power adders don’t stop there with a MagnaFlow exhaust and a set of American Racing headers. And for when the going gets tough, Nitrous Express will only be a tap away.

DuPont’s Cromax paint line will cover the exterior of the car, which will sport a completely custom kit designed by Gurnade and Tjin Edition and produced by Extreme Dimensions.

Air Lift will develop a full digital air suspension kit, allowing Tjin to give the Mustang GT a proper stance no matter where it is or what it’s doing. Under each fender will be a 20-inch Forgestar CF5 wheels, sporting a mean concave design and wrapped with Falken tires.

Last but not least, the interior will be completely revamped with Status Racing seats, Auto Meter gauges and a STACK cluster. And don’t worry, Tjin Edition has the in car electronics handled too thanks to Scosche, Metra, Pioneer and Image Dynamics.

This year’s SEMA seems to be shaping up to be an exciting one, so stay tuned as AutoGuide.com will have tons of coverage from this year’s show which takes place in early November.
