Dodge tuning information with articles and pictures about modified Dodge cars for Dodge tuning enthusiasts.
The guys from Drop Top Customs have done it again, this time with an all new Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee that they’ve turned into a convertible. While most of this tuning companies builds are custom orders, they recently said a limited production of 13 convertible Chargers will be made with the 6.4-liter V8 Hemi SRT8. Each customer will receive their sports car with a soft top that matches the color of the Super Bee stripes.
Orlando-based tuning company Ultimate Auto has created this version of the Dodge Challenger SRT-8 with huge Pirelli tires. They were able to fit Savini 24-inch forged alloy rims and stretched some Pirelli 405/25/24 high performance tires in the wheel wells. The results show a super flush fitment that we hope the stock suspension can handle since no upgrades in that department were noted.
South Florida based tuners Superior Auto Design have given the works to their latest Dodge Viper customization. They started off by wrapping the classic sports car in a satin black 3M car film and then added carbon fiber and gloss accents to the door jams. A new ACR hood gives the Viper a more aggressive appearance, while the factory stripes were removed and body work smoothed out the lines from front to back. The new Dodge Viper logo on the trunk came next and the exterior was completed with powder coated brake calipers hiding under the 20-inch forged rims wrapped in high performance tires.
Drop Top Customs based out of Florida has delivered some new packages for the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 sedans. By the name of the tuning company you can see they specialize in making one of a kind convertible cars that aren’t offered by the factory. Some of their previous work includes a Chevy Camaro convertible back in 2009 and a Cadillac CTS convertible in 2010.
Famous comedian and ventriloquist Jeff Dunham pulled the covers off his “Project UltraViolet” Dodge Challenger SRT8 at this week’s SEMA Show. This was a collaboration project between Mopar, SRT and Jeff’s crew from Palmer’s Customs based out of Camarillo, California. The car combines an ultra-violoet paint with a black upper half, and received a variety of exterior modifications to make it one bad machine.
The people of New York along with all the tourists that frequently roam the streets were in for a treat the other day. On a trip through Times Square people spotted some rare cars and even a Batmobile replica. This comes shortly after the Colorado shooting for the new Dark Knight film which we are very sorry for the event that occurred that evening. Meanwhile, spectators in New York were able to feast their eyes on a new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 that was wrapped in chrome and is most likely the first of its kind.
German car wrap specialists CCG Automotive have customized this Dodge Challenger SRT8 with some unique exterior styling and serious power under the hood. While we thought Lambo doors were a thing of the past, they do make an appearance occasionally no matter how ridiculous they look. Perhaps the nicest aftermarket parts are the Asanti rims with Pirelli Scorpion Zero Rollers to fit perfectly under the widen fenders. The tuners then covered the sports car with their lime green car wrap featuring white racing stripes on the hood, roof and doors.
Revealing itself ahead of the New York Motor Show debut is the all new Dodge Viper SRT and the SRT Viper GTS. They both will receive the new logo called the “Stryker” which was determined by the Viper Club of America. Rumors about the powerplant state that the SRT Viper will hold a 8.4-liter V10 engine producing 640 bhp and 600 lb-ft of torque. This is supposedly the most torque of any naturally aspirated car in the world.
While this Dodge Challenger SRT-8 Limo is the first of its kind, it will definitely not be the last when limo manufacturer’s see this. This was built by the limousine company LA Custom Coach, and as stated in the video below, they are already constructing the second version. It was showcased at the Spring Festival in Irvine, California and received more attention than most of the luxury cars that were on display. Specifications show that the Dodge Challenger Limo was stretched 140 inches, while it received two new LED televisions and a full bar inside.
While we rarely cover truck tuning, this Xplore Dodge Ram caught our attention for all the outdoor enthusiasts around the world. The company behind the work, Venchurs Vehicle Systems, aims to provide custom projects for all types of SUVs and off-road vehicles. Now this picture is just a concept, but the company also plans to offer work for the Ford F-Series and Chevrolet Silverado, with up to four different stages of aftermarket customizations for your truck tuning.
In an attempt to stay with the competition, Dodge has created this Ram Runner from the Dodge Ram truck with the aid of their tuning division Mopar. With the launch of the Ford F-150 Raptor, it looks like truck manufacturer’s will have to raise the bar when it comes to off-road capabilities. Dodge is trying to show off their Mopar Ram Runner kit that was developed along with off-road racer Kent Kroeker. This kit consists of a Pre-Runner Stage II lift kit, new off-road front bumper, new fenders, rear-tire holder, performance hood, and a full cat-back performance exhaust system.
Check out this car, a Dodge Viper with a Saab 9-3 stationwagon body on top, proving that anything is possible when you use your imagination and have the right tools for the job. A team of Swedish tuners took on this Viper project after they originally bought it for a rebuild, then spare parts were difficult to come by, so the plans changed. Looks like it worked out well since they now have a Saab 9-3 powered by a SRT10 Viper engine. However, this custom build wasn’t easy because the V10 8.4-liter powerplant was too big for the engine bay, and it had to be pushed inside the cabin some. After the jump you can see more pictures and a video of the bodiless Viper doing donuts.
