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 the amazing photos after the jump:
At the end of August, we caught wind that DropTop Customs is working on a convertible Cadillac CTS coupe. Now DropTop Customs has teamed up with Petty Garage to bring on a Dodge Challenger RT convertible for all the die-hard Mopar fans out there wanting to breathe the open air.
The very first street car to come from legendary racer Richard Petty’s own shop sold for a solid $130,000 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdate, AZ over the weekend. Built by Petty’s Garage, the Challenger SRT8 is a prototype for a future production model is features the 0001 serial number. Along with the custom body and a long list of suspension modifications, this Challenger features a HEMI V8 built by Arrington Engines to produce 585-hp and 560 ft-lbs of torque. It has also been painted a special (and trademarked) Petty Blue paint made specially by BASF.
The Mopar performance department at Chrysler went all out in building the Mopar Jeep Lower Forty, which is designed to deliver serious off-roading – just the way Jeep drivers like it. Starting life as a two-door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, the gear-heads at Mopar decided to add on a set of 20-inch Mopar wheels and 40-inch tires, while keeping the car’s center of gravity as close to stock as possible. In order to do so, some serious body modifications were necessary, including moving much of the chassis higher into the vehicle. As a result, almost three inches had to be removed from the windshield, while the one-inch wider fender flares now sit 4-inches higher.
Dodge’s unveiled its custom Mopar Dodge Ram Bianco Image Vehicle at the SEMA Show today, possibly firing a warning shot at the Ford F-150 Platinum and letting he Blue Oval know that there may be competition in the luxury truck business. Ford’s F-150 Platinum caters more to ranch owners than ranch hands, and the Mopar Dodge Ram Bianco does the same.
With the SEMA Show officially starting tomorrow, we were in town early and thought we drop by to see what we might stumble upon. It was hard to miss the tasty Skittles rainbow of convertible Challengers parked out front. Dodge tuner Mr. Norm’s Garage was displaying five of the drop-top Challengers in different colors and with plenty of different custom work.
