Remember seeing the silver Dodge Charger Vin Diesel's character 'Dominic Toretto' drove at the end of Furious 7 when he said his goodbyes to Paul Walker?
Well if you happen to have millions of dollars burning a hole in your pocket, here's your chance to actually get it at an auction. Called the Maximus Charger, this one-off muscle car actually won the Best Car Award at the 2013 SEMA Show, and packs over 2000 horsepower from its monster V8. Built by Scott Spock Racing, this muscle car retains the classic looks of yesteryear while having the sheer power of modern V8s.
Using a 1968 Charger as its base, the Maximus has a custom all-metal wide bodywork that took over 16,000 hours to finish. Also worth mentioning is its lack of paint in order to show off the shiny metal finish via a clear coat. The result is a stainless steel-like finish which gives the muscle car an almost pristine appearance.
Under the hood of the Maximus Charger is no ordinary V8. It's a 9.4-liter, quad-turbo HEMI that could probably decimate all in its path. Built by Tom Nelson of Nelson's Racing Engines, this beast of a V8 produces a staggering 2,250 PS. This translates to a 0 – 97 km/h sprint of just 1.8 seconds, and a 0 – 257 km/h run in only 8 seconds. Top speed, on other other hand, is rated at between 400 – 480 km/h.
Aside from the magnificent engine, the Maximus also has two intercoolers, an all stainless steel exhaust system, and a custom chassis that they claim is 400% more rigid than the original. Helping the Maximus slow itself down comes courtesy of 14-inch disc rotors that use six-piston calipers. Finally, this one-off also has fully adjustable coilovers with a bespoke suspension geometry, and adjustable sway bars.
Interested in owning a piece of automotive art? Better head on to its listing at Worldwide Auctioneers and let them know you're keen. And if you happen to be the new owner of Maximus, you might even get a chance to meet Dominic's crew at the ninth and tenth installment of the Fast and Furious series. Why? Because the Maximus has been requested to appear once more in the upcoming films. How's that for an enticing deal?
