SpeedKore’s Mid-Engined ’68 Charger Is a Fast and Furious Muscle Machine

Vin Diesel’s Fast saga character, Dominic Toretto, has a thing for classic Dodge Chargers (and family—it’s a whole thing). So, it’s no surprise a 1968 Charger appears in the latest Fast film, F9. What is surprising, however, is the fact this classic muscle machine houses its engine behind the cabin. You’ll recall that an original ’68 Charger situates its engine in the nose.

Yep, Dom drives a mid-engined 1968 Charger in F9. And it is not only the engine’s placement that wows, either. Credit to the visionaries at SpeedKore who fitted this Charger with a modern 707-hp supercharged 6.2-liter “Hellcat” V-8. Then, to really put a cherry on top of this crazy cake, SpeedKore mated this big bent-eight to a Graziano transaxle from a Lamborghini Gallardo

Dubbed “Hellacious,” this stick-shift Charger is a true street-ready high-performance vehicle that brings the magic of the big screen to the tarmac. Hellacious is no stunt car with budget pieces to compensate for its inevitable destruction, either. No, this is the real deal. For the full story, check out this article from Motor Trend.
