Dodge has been making quite a splash since announcing its never-lift campaign last year. The company has shaken the automotive world up quite a bit recently with the unveiling of the first all-electric muscle car in the Dodge Charger Daytona Banshee. For those still latched onto the classics however Dodge unveiled a pretty sweet treat during its speed week earlier this year. Direct Connection partnered up with Finale Speed to offer a 1970 Dodge Charger fully carbon fiber rolling body. The only thing CEO Tim Kuniskis omitted from his initial reveal was how much it cost, and perhaps on purpose, because it isn’t cheap.
Per Finale Speed’s website, the fully carbon rolling body has a starting price of $199,000. To put that in perspective, you could purchase four brand new 2023 Dodge Charger Scat Pack models and still have money left over for any desired customization’s before breaking the $200,000 mark.The optional add-ons include a clear coat priced at $20,000 and three-piece Forgeline wheels and tires that tack on another $12,500 making your grand total with options included, a whopping $231,500. It’s unclear how long customers would have to wait for delivery, as well.
The Yukon Oklahoma based Finale Speed shop uses an autoclave to accomplish its body builds and supplies all of them with a 6.2L Supercharged Dodge Hellcat Crate engine, leaving it up to the buyer on what transmission they want to use. Direct Connection has updated its website to reflect the 1970 Charger offering and also reveals the company has future plans to offer a Barracuda and Roadrunner iteration. Despite Finale Speed’s website omission of offering single carbon fiber body parts like trunks or hoods, Direct Connection’s website description shares that they offer those as well.
