Now that the SEMA Auto Show in Las Vegas, NV has come and gone, we finally know what a lot of the concept cars that Chrysler, Dodge, and Mopar teased us with look like in person. In the end, there were a total of 24 customized and modified vehicles from Mopar alone. Perhaps the most exciting though was the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 “Project UltraViolet” that was customized by comedian ventriloquist Jeff Dunham and inspired by 1970 Plymouth Barracuda.
This highly customized Challenger showcases the possible modifications that customers can make to their own vehicles using the more than 150 quality-tested Mopar components and accessories. The UltraViolet Challenger features a Mopar T/A hood that utilizes a functional air scoop that supplies the Mopar 426 crate engine. This upgraded engine cranks out 515 horsepower and 490 lb-ft of torque through a six-speed manual transmission. Other customization done to the car includes a two tone paint job, custom built aluminum panels, lowered suspension, 22 inch HRE performance wheels, wheel flares, aerodynamic parts, and a side exit exhaust really make the Challenger stand out even at the SEMA show!
