Dodge Challenger Blacktop by Mopar to be unveiled at SEMA

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2008

The Mopar Underground design team has created an intimidating concept in the Dodge Challenger Blacktop which originated as a 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T outfitted with a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine and a six-speed manual transmission. Custom-made spoilers were added to the front brow by Mopar Underground.

To accentuate its appearance, a racing scheme of black-on-black stripe was added. The "in the weeds" posture and superior handling features are provided by the Mopar coil-over suspension and strut tower brace.

The Blacktop rests on gigantic 22-inch Dodge Viper wheels courtesy of Factory Reproductions strongly hugged by Dunlop tires with vital statistics of 265/35 R22 front and 305/30 R22 rear. In order to guarantee the power train can keep abreast with the suspension, performance under the hood is enhanced.

To help the HEMI V8 aspirate much easier, Mopar components such as, a cat back dual exhaust and cold air intake, were added. Bright red Katzkin leather seating enhanced the interior finish and superior music experience is provided by Mopar Kicker audio system.

Dodge Challenger Blacktop

A menacing creation from the minds of the Mopar Underground design team. The Dodge Challenger Blacktop began life as a 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T equipped with a 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 and six-speed manual transmission. Mopar Underground added custom-made spoilers and front brow.

To finish off the look, a black-on-black racing stripe paint scheme was added. The "in the weeds" stance and superb handling characteristics are accomplished by the Mopar coil-over suspension and strut tower brace. Blacktop rolls on massive 22-inch Dodge Viper wheels from Factory Reproductions wrapped in Dunlop tires measuring 265/35 R22 front and 305/30 R22 rear.

To ensure the powertrain can keep up with the suspension, underhood performance is enhanced. The addition of Mopar components, including a cat back dual-exhaust, cold air intake, allow the HEMI V-8 to breathe easy. The interior has been enhanced with Katzkin leather seating finished in bright red plus a Mopar Kicker audio system for premium sound.
