The Dodge Challenger Targa is a full-scale competition racecar that battled and finished the notorious Targa Newfoundland race this year. Samantha began as a Mopar Challenger drag racer. Many of its features were appropriated from the Dodge Viper, but the most obvious one is the green snakeskin paint job. To maintain the lowered position of the front end, a full-scale wind-tunnel-tested Mopar chin spoiler Splats was added.
To accurately monitor its vital signs, Mopar gauges were utilized. The Mopar hood features a scoop to increase space for the 540hp, 490ft-lb of torque, 392 HEMI V-8 Mopar crate motor.
Coupled to a Tremec six-speed manual gearbox, the engine hurls power to the rear tires through a 2009 series modified gear ratio.
Stop-Tech brakes provide an overwhelming supply of fade-resistant stopping power. Equipped with the six-piston calipers clamp 380-mm rotors up front and four-pot calipers with 355-mm rotors at the rear.
The race suspension and brake upgrades which were developed by KW, came from the Dodge Viper ACR, the hero that broke the production car lap record at the famous Nurburgring in Germany. The Dodge Challenger Targa was created exclusively using Mopar parts with quite a few exceptions so expect to see a high quality vehicle.
