What you see is the Dodge Charger & # 39; Tantrum & # 39; from 1970 it was built a few years ago by SpeedKore Performance. The car was previously offered for sale on Fusion Motors earlier this year, but is no longer online, indicating that the Indie was sold and not just leased to Diesel.
The Tantrum is powered by a Mercury Marine Racing 9.0-liter engine with two turbochargers being an unbelievable 1650 hp churns. This engine is matched to a Tremec six-manual transmission and a Ford nine-inch rear end and is certainly one of the most popular chargers we've ever encountered.
What makes the car more impressive is just how well made it is. The exterior is clad in carbon phase and the interior is also transformed and fitted with new leather seats and various sections finished in Alcantara and carbon phase.
