Digital Artist Creates The Perfect 2025 Dodge HEMI Charger Drift Car

HEMI®-Power, Lightweight, and Sleek New Charger Exterior...

In the current state of the automotive world, change is inevitable, and for some diehard fans of traditional muscle cars, the shift towards electric vehicles (EVs) is a bitter pill to swallow.

While Ford continues to stand firm on keeping its new seventh-generation Mustang non-electrified until 2028, Dodge is gearing up to stir up the conversation with the upcoming 2025 Dodge Charger – and digital artist BradBuilds is adding a whole new twist to the narrative.

Arriving on the new STLA Large architecture, the new muscle car will launch in a two-door configuration first. Scheduled to have both a traditional combustion engine (ICE) and a full battery-electric (BEV) powertrain option, many muscle car fans are puzzled as to why Dodge doesn’t continue the path with a HEMI® V8 under the hood, in addition to the electric and rumored twin-turbocharged Hurricane inline-six engines.

But it hasn’t stopped digital artists across the web from being creative and showing us what could be possible once the new 2025 Dodge Charger arrives. The imaginative mind of BradBuilds, known for his quirky and out-of-the-box renderings, has designed a Charger with a Hellephant C170 6.2L Supercharged Crate HEMI® engine, the same engine under the hood of the 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170.

While we don’t see a mockup of the engine, and the car keeps its new patented R-wing design, what makes this rendering stand out is that it is practically a stock car. Looking at the interior, we see it has been completely gutted and now has a setup similar to a NASCAR inside. A full racing seat, roll cage, and a stock car dash show us how a 2025 Dodge Charger could look if it were to return to the superspeedway.

Looking at the rear, we realize there are no windows apart from the windshield, and even the taillight panel is gone. Judging by the stance of this setup, we think it would make an awesome drift car. Full-out race car interior, gutted to save weight, and a supercharged HEMI making 1,025 horsepower under the hood, we could see this thing ripping up the Formula DRIFT schedule. Remember when Dodge marketed Vipers in drifting?

Nevertheless, we predict that there will be a few diehard fans out there who will take the handsome new Charger when it arrives and ditch the Hurricane inline-six, throwing in a Direct Connection HEMI crate engine.

Stellantis doesn't want to be in business in north america oh that's how their plan seems to look. I was a die hard dodge fan but with no v8 or hemi there's no reason to buy a dodge anymore

Yeah this rendering is stupid. It's never happening on a production scale. All the writing is on the wall and the Hurricane is the ICE future for Stellantis. The V8 is and has been dead in the business plan for several years and it's a shame.
