The Dodge Challenger will always be engrained in muscle car history. The original will always be a classic, and the new has so many accolades to its name, I’m not sure it can be bested in many ways, especially as we move towards an all-electric future.
But now the Instagram user adry53customs and self-proclaimed 3D artist, automotive visualizer, and an American muscle car enthusiast has created something incredible in the form of a blown 426 Hemi 1970 Dodge Challenger.
Any motoring enthusiast who loves the smell of fuel and the sound of a V8 will tell you just how much fun it is to drive a Dodge Challenger of any age. For most classic car lovers, it’s the greatest rush. But Emmanuel wanted to go a little further than most and added a host of interesting modifications to his render.
“Chill out grandpas all of these are 3d rendering so no need to freak out,” he told his followers.
Describing the car as “a stock style fender widened and raised. It’s a 1970 Dodge Challenger, 426 Hemi Blown with a barndoor butterfly scoop on top,” before defining it as the perfect daily driver. I’d like to agree, but I’m not sure I’d want to drive through English snow in that thing with all that torque on tap.
The huge supercharger poking out from the hood is something our friends over at Sung’s Garage would enjoy, and its two-tone paint job is simply gorgeous.
What You Need To Know About The Dodge Challenger
The Dodge Challenger was first introduced in 1969 for the 1970 model year, and it used the Chrysler E-body platform like its brother from another mother, the Plymouth Barracuda.
With the Ford Mustang winning hearts across America, the Challenger was late to the party and didn’t quite put up the fight it should have. But now the Challenger can be purchased forms with the 1320 variant being the fastest naturally aspirated muscle car available to purchase from a factory. It has a top speed of 203mph. Another variant, the SRT Superstock, produces a whopping 807 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque.
A classic Hemi 426 can push you to six figures these days, so a render was definitely an easier way to plot any preferred modifications.
