The star of Dodge’s lineup at this year’s SEMA Auto Show is undoubtedly the V10-powered Challenger SRT10 Concept
, but there are a slew of other modified Dodge vehicles on show in Las Vegas this week that are also worth mentioning. These include cars like the Mopar enhanced Dodge Challenger R/T Blacktop, plus a handful of custom Ram pickup trucks
Developed by a group called the ‘Mopar Underground’, the SEMA Dodge Challenger R/T has been packed with a number of official Mopar accessories. Some of the features include a set of 22in alloy wheels lifted from the Dodge Viper, a special cat-back dual exhaust, and revised suspension tuning. The interior has been enhanced with Katzkin leather seating finished in bright red plus a Mopar Kicker audio system for premium sound.
Power comes from a standard 5.7L HEMI V8 that is rated at 370hp (276kW) and 398lb-ft (540Nm) of torque and is matched to a six-speed manual transmission. Mopar Underground also adds custom-made spoilers as well as a front clip over the grille. To finish it off, designers add a black-on-black racing stripe paint finish.
For the four modified Ram pickups also on show, Mopar have installed adjustable suspension kits, forged alloy wheels, BFG tires, Mopar navigation and DVD systems, and Katzkin leather interiors.
