Somehow eXomod has made the Challenger even more retro styled.
eXoMod Concepts, an aftermarket specialist, is using carbon fiber to create a complete widebody for the Dodge Challenger to restyle it as a 1968 Dodge Charger, and it's spectacular. The Dodge Challenger is already a retro-styled car, but eXoMod has taken it to a whole new level. The new body is four inches wider than the original Charger, but the carbon fiber construction reduces the weight of the vehicle by 400 pounds. The drivetrain remains untouched (including the eight-speed TorqueFlite transmission), so it retains the drivetrain warranty from Dodge.
As you can imagine, though, it's not cheap, and only a limited amount is being made. This is the seventh of what eXoMod calls its C68 Carbon Series, and has been dubbed Quicksilver. Specced with the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 Hellcat Redeye engine (the Platinum package) it will be costing its owner at least $345,000.
Quicksilver is not just an aesthetic build, though. EXoMod added six-piston Brembo brake calipers with 15.7-inch drilled rotors, which lurk behind custom-built 20-inch Forgeline staggered wheels measuring 12 inches wide at the back and 10 inches wide at the front. The wheels are wrapped in Nitto NT555 tires.
Dodge is ending production of gas-powered Challengers, so these will likely become insanely valued collector's items down the road as we shift to hybrid and all-electric power.
Exomod is limiting the current C68 line to 10 vehicles, but it looks a C69 line is in the works. The low numbers are largely due to the fact the builds take around 1,500 hours to complete. According to eXomod's price sheet, the car specced with the 717 hp SRT Hellcat with its supercharged V8 and is priced at $329,000. Specced with Hellcat Redeye powertrain and its 797 hp, it starts at $345,000.
Each package is upgradeable in horsepower, topping out at 885 hp on the Platinum Package, and there's a whole list of cool options to choose from. Start saving those pennies.
