In the world of automotive enthusiasts, a jaw-dropping masterpiece has emerged, and it goes by the name “Hellfire.” This custom 1970 Dodge Charger resto-mod recently made its grand debut at SEMA 2023, stealing the spotlight as the star of the show at the Lexani Tire booth. Now, the time has come for Hellfire to find a new home as it heads to the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction on Saturday, January 27th, 2024.
Under the Hood –
Under the hood of this beast lies a heart-pounding 707 horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter HELLCAT HEMI® V8 engine. The power is harnessed by a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, ensuring an exhilarating driving experience. The distinctive gold heat-reflecting foil and clean wire tuck installation showcase the meticulous attention to detail that went into the engine bay.
The transformation of Hellfire didn’t stop at the engine. A complete Holley parts swap, Hooker long-tube headers, and a 3-inch exhaust create a symphony of power. The custom Driveshaft Pro driveline and 8.75-inch Chrysler LSD Sure-Grip rear end put the rubber to the road, making every drive an adrenaline-fueled adventure.
Suspension and Wheels –
But it’s not just about power; Hellfire boasts modern amenities and cutting-edge technology. The RideTech air-leveling kit, upgraded suspension, and custom 22-inch AC-forged wheels provide a smooth and adjustable ride. The interior seamlessly blends classic and modern, featuring an 8-inch SRT touchscreen, performance gauges, and a Kenwood eXcelon sound system with powerful speakers and subwoofers.
Exterior Transformation –
Witness a visual feast as the car’s body has been widened by 3 inches, using complete metal quarter-panels molded to retain the original body lines. The custom mix of House of Kolor Kandy Apple Red paint gives the Hellfire a stunning finish that shifts tones with ambient light. The roof, covered in hand-laid carbon fiber, adds a touch of sophistication.
Interior Bliss –
Step inside, and you’ll find a blend of modern and classic. The dash and factory SRT screens from a modern Challenger SRT HELLCAT are seamlessly integrated. The 8-inch SRT touchscreen displays performance gauges, while a Kenwood eXcelon sound system with premium speakers and subwoofers fills the cabin with rich audio. The racing-style seats, wrapped in Saddle Brown leather with Bentley-style double-diamond stitching and black suede, complete the luxurious interior.
