We’re all aware of the electric car takeover – and whether you’re for or against, it may be coming to your muscle car. Meet Mitch Medford, a man determined to redefine what we consider vintage performance. He’s already made a stir in the car community with his all-electric ’68 Mustang and we’re getting the feeling he’s about to be doing a whole lot more. Check him out, right here:
Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman is claiming that Dodge will reveal a production Charger Widebody concept packing 797 horsepower. Although he failed to site any specific sources, we’re intrigued nonetheless. He made a prediction that it will make an appearance at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
The debut took place at the SoCal LX Spring Fest in March. A few noteworthy specs include wider fenders, a revised front end with larger inlets in the fascia, a large trunk lip spoiler and small opening behind the rear wheels. The car has black wheels with five sets of dual spokes. Rumors about the potential sedan are swirling includng that the Charger will host the upgraded version of the Hellcat’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with 717-hp. However, Lieberman’s speculation geared towards using the Redeye’s 797-hp. Either way, we’d be stoked. More to come. Check it out, right here.
The C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is an amazing machine. The $80,000 price tag? Not so amazing. While there are many affordable supercharger cars on the market, few are quite as fast as the Z06. A close runner-up is the Callaway C7 Corvette, a supercharger which produces 610 hp. It can hit 0-60 in 3.4 seconds and do the quarter-mile in 11 seconds. Sure, that’s pretty fast, but doesn’t come close to the monstrous procharged C7 with over 1,000 hp.
The car was fitted with drag radials when it conquered the quarter-mile in 9.69 seconds at 143 mph. Making it one of the fastest Corvettes we’ve ever seen. See for yourself:
Who wouldn’t want a 1966 Ford Mustang with all the bells and whistles available in cars today? We’d be first in line. You’re looking at a replica of a classic pony car courtesy of Revology Cars, based in Winter Park, Florida. Both convertible and fastback coupe bodystyles are available. Check out some of the specs:
– Dynacorn body shell
– 5.0-liter ‘Coyote’ V-8
– electronic-controlled transmission
– power-assisted rack and pinion steering
– LED headlights
Don’t let all the luxuries fool you, though. This Mustang replica looks so authentic you may even think it’s the real thing.
Let’s just say, we wouldn’t want to be in a car chase with this police SUV on our tail. Dodge revealed its latest Durango SRT Pursuit concept that packs 797-horsepower thanks to a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 borrowed from a Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Last year, Dodge took home its title in the Truck/SUV class with the standard Durango SRT that has a 6.4-liter V-8 producing 475-hp. So we can assume that the goal of this concept is to defend that title.
The concept nicknamed “Speed Trap” will of course feature the new engine, but will have other upgrades as well. Of note is a high-flow cat-back exhaust, a 0.6-inch lowered ride height, 20-inch wheels with 305/35-size Pirelli P Zero tires, and a Brembo brake package with 15.75-inch Brembo 2-piece vented rotors with 6-piston callipers up front and 13.78-inch vented rotors with 4-piston calipers at the rear.
