Finished in Mopar Snakeskin Green and hosting a modern Dodge Hellcat engine, this 707bhp monster is the ultimate sleeper - and whereas the modern car weighs a not inconsiderable 4,448lbs, this svelte classic boasts an incredible 4.2lbs/bhp or two pounds per-horsepower less weight than the 2020 Hellcat that donated its engine.
It handles too thanks to custom suspension from Control Freaks, the category leading firm who donated the bespoke parts necessary to craft a genuine one-off classic muscle car the likes of which we rarely see this side of the Atlantic.
UK registered and classified as an historic vehicle for tax purposes, it has been health-checked and is available for worldwide export, something the vendor would be happy to help facilitate.
The original body was mounted on a rotisserie and treated to a full restoration before being sprayed in Mopar’s signature Snakeskin Green factory hue. The fit ‘n’ finish is exceptional with fabulous panel alignment, tight and even shutlines, and an absence of dents, dinks and other damage.
And then there’s the paint, which gleams in an almost unholy way. Vibrant and unusual, the colour is wonderfully offset by the twin chin spoilers, matt black bonnet, and black grille – and that’s just from the front; the side view reveals a huge bonnet scoop bearing the legend ‘supercharged’, smoked indicator repeater lenses, tinted windows, and that gorgeous rear decal that swoops over the rear fenders and boot lid.
Plus, six-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels. Beautifully finished and free of any scrapes and scuffs, they’re shod with matching Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres, 255/40ZR18 at the front and 295/35ZR18 at the rear. A set of Wilwood brake calipers, six-piston at the front and four at the rear, peek out from behind them - but then who else are you gonna call when you’re trying to rein in 707bhp?
Plus, as we will never tire of explaining, our experience shows that matching high-quality tyres are an infallible sign of a caring and mechanically sympathetic owner who is prepared to spend the appropriate amount in maintaining their car properly. Their presence does not, of course, preclude the need for a thorough inspection - something the vendor would welcome, by the way – but it does perhaps give you a shortcut into their attitude towards maintenance.
The rear features quad exhaust tailpipes, smoked rear light lenses, and a full-width black panel that serves to emphasize those massive rear tyres.
Problems? Well, there are cracks in the paint at the base of the rear window but aside from that all there is to find fault with is the odd minor stonechip and blemish. It really is every bit as good as it looks in the photos but please don’t take our word for it because the vendor would love the opportunity to show it to you in person.
