The Chrysler Group has prepared one cool Viper-powered Charger to debut at the SEMA Show.
Imagine a modern-day take on a custom street rod, mated with an emissions-friendly powerplant and a bountiful array of Mopar parts and accessories which demonstrate what the very well-heeled owner can create. That’s the Dodge Charger Juiced.Front and center is the Viper V-10 Mopar crate engine, which provides the Dodge Charger Juiced with the soul of a hot rod by taking a fast car and inserting an even more powerful engine. The Viper V-10 injects a venom-worthy boost of 650 horsepower into the Charger Juiced, but tones down the emissions to remain eco-friendly. The Mopar cold air intake and Mopar cat-back exhaust provide even more horsepower and a menacing engine note, while the Mopar lowering kit tightens the ride and improves cornering.The design of the Charger Juiced complements the aggressive lines of the Dodge Charger while evoking a custom-rod feel with a restrained subtlety. The Mopar front chin spoiler, Mopar Performance prototype hood (with a functional forward-facing intake) and roof carry a darker matte version of the custom Metallic “Copperhead” paint of the vehicle. Unique Mopar matte black hood graphics and decklid graphics are also featured. The body-color split-crosshair grille boasts a Mopar grille badge, and Mopar-exclusive 20-inch lightweight wheels are also trimmed in matte black, with an accent “Copperhead” stripe.“Copperhead” inflections reach inside of the Charger Juiced, where unique black leather seats stand out with touches of “Copperhead” color. Accent “Copperhead” color stitching may be found on the steering wheel, shifter and armrest, and a “Copperhead” logo is embroidered on the seatbacks. The large aluminum instrument panel bezel is matte black but also touched by subtle hints of the outside hue. The interior is finished off with Mopar logo door-sill guards, Mopar logo premium carpet floor mats, and the Mopar pistol-grip shifter.
Don’t look for a production version though. The Charger Juiced is strictly a “what if” experiment showing what could be done by the enterprising enthusiast with a bankroll to match.
