A special vinyl wrap married to a bigger, more powerful engine has transformed this Challenger.
This special vinyl wrap is the work of German outfit CCG Automotive who not only coated the 2009 model year Challenger SRT8 in electric green and carbon-white but also tinkered with the muscle car giving it 600hp. LSD wing doors were added and the front fenders were widened to make room for the 22-inch three-piece black Asanti alloys wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion Zero Rollers. The Monschau-based tuner also increased power from 425 and 420hp to 600hp and 470lb-ft of torque.
This was done by increasing displacement of the 6.1-liter HEMI-V8 engine to 7.0-liters via a stroke kit, resulting in a new top speed of 186mph. The new engine is accompanied by a new exhaust system with a pair of square exhaust-pipes, while a PRINS Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) facility with two carburetors and a 120-liter tank has been installed to reel in the gas guzzler's economy. A new hood has been fitted to accommodate the bigger engine and a KW coilover suspension with adjustable damping that increases chassis performance.
As for the interior, CCG covered the seats, dashboard, headliner and all the cheap-looking plastic surfaces with neatly stitched Alcantara and leather in anthracite/black, contrasted with red seams and edge piping. Gadgets and sounds come courtesy of a new MyGIG hard disk audio system with radio, CD/DVD player and Touch screens, in addition to the SRT Option Package II with 13 Kicker SRT high-performance loudspeakers, a 322-watt Kicker SRT amplifier and a 200-watt Kicker SRT subwoofer.
