Viper-Powered Dodge Charger Leaves Jay Leno Impressed 11

One of the most popular show cars in this year’s SEMA was arguably this heavily modified 1968 Dodge Charger.

It took Johan Eriksson and his team a full five years to complete their masterpiece and just by looking at it, you know that there isn’t a single nut and bolt left in its original state.

Under the hood now lies a Viper-sourced V10 engine that also happens to have gained a pair of turbos for a total output of 1,000hp. Paired to it is a proper manual six-speed gearbox, which should make driving this monster down the road a rather interesting experience.

The whole car is based on the platform of a Corvette C6, which makes sense if you think what 1,000hp would do to the original chassis. The roof was also chopped by 40mm to make it prettier while the ridiculously large wheels are custom-made, measuring 24×15.5(!) inches at the rear and 22×11 inches at the front.

What makes this custom Charger however stand out is the attention to the detail inside and out. Jay Leno shows us around this Swedish-built monster Charger, so let’s keep our jaws secured in place.

BMW E30 Hillclimber Has E46 M3 Engine Revving To 9,600 RPM 12

When you combine a BMW E30 with a tuned E46 M3 engine revving to 9,600 rpm, the results are truly phenomenal, as this video proves.

This E30 competes in the Lebanese Hillclimb Championship and absolutely dominates the rear-wheel drive class. It’s not hard to see why.

Sitting beneath the featherweight bodywork of the 3-Series is the S54 straight-six engine out of the E46 M3. However, this powertrain has been heavily upgraded, destroked, delivers 440 hp and now revs to a mesmerizing 9,600 rpm. It is also one of the best sounding six-cylinders we’ve ever heard.

Filmed here at a couple of stages during this year’s championship, the car looks like the perfect package to fire up twisting roads with pin-point precision. The driver, Naoum Oneissy, is also able to extract the most out of the car by expertly reaching the limits of its grip and staying there.
