2. 1970 Dodge Challenger Designed by Eric Brockmeyer
Powered by a new all-aluminum 528ci HEMI with 730hp, this one-of-a-kind Pro-Touring Challenger was designed by automotive artist Eric Brockmeyer and has only 900 miles since completion. Featuring XV Motorsports Level II suspension front and back, Level II brakes, a new Indy Cylinder Heads all-aluminum 528ci Street Legend HEMI, and a functional T/A hood with factory air cleaner, the vehicle was a ground-up restoration. A real Challenger 1970s body was completely stripped them meticulously rebuilt over a period of three years. The undercoating was stripped, the glass was removed and the entire body was soda-blasted before being finished with show-quality Dodge HEMI Orange Pearl paint.
