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 we rarely cover truck tuning, this Xplore Dodge Ram caught our attention for all the outdoor enthusiasts around the world.

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.

Up for sale at the Volo Auto Museum in Illinois is this matte gray 1970 Dodge Charger RT movie car, which claims to have been driven by Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto in the 2009 Fast and Furious movie. Not only being a movie car, the custom Charger features a stripped and modified interior with a new sport steering wheel, plenty of gauges, and an automatic V8 with a large supercharger and intake coming out the hood. They say the appraised value is $200,000, however I have a hard time believing that due to the fact that Hemmings values a 1970 Dodge Charger RT around $28,995 to $74,900. But I guess spending the extra 100k for an all time classic movie car could be worth it. Fortunately they have “marked” the price down to $129,998 for anyone interested.

This Dodge Dakota Convertible truck was sold on eBay recently, and one lucky car tuning enthusiast was fortunate enough to grab this unique automobile. This is 1 of 909 built in 1990, and there were only around 3,000 ever manufactured between 89-90. Yes, the top is completely factory, and this truck is reasonably priced for how rare it is. Many of these convertible trucks were destroyed in the Cash for Clunkers, a program that lets owners trade in their old cars and trucks for a discount when buying a new car or truck from a dealership. Looks like the owner put a little work into tuning the Dakota convertible as well. Listed in the auction are several modifications including Eagle alloy rims, lowering links, alarm system, and a deep sounding performance exhaust.
