When Dodge brought back the Charger name in 2006, we got a car with unprecedented power levels and the convenience of four doors. But for the fans of the original, their best bet to have a classic-styled muscle car was the Dodge Challenger. Luckily, Exomod has taken it upon itself to modify the Challenger and give it the classic 1968 Dodge Charger widebody appearance we all know and love. The company’s latest creation, “Goldfinger,” uses a Hellcat with a full-carbon fiber body painted black and gold sporting 807 horsepower and a hand-built exterior.
Exomod 1968 Dodge Charger “Goldfinger”: Details
As you know, the standard Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye has 797 horsepower from the factory. But Exomod bumped that figure by 10, giving the future customer 807 ponies to play with. The car also received an eight-speed automatic transmission, a 3.09 anti-spin rear differential, SRT Competition Suspension, SRT Power Chiller, custom exhaust, and the ever-important Brembo brakes to make sure the car can come to a stop promptly as needed.
Exomod started with a 2022 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye, and interestingly, the work done to the car has yet to void the OEM five-year/60,000-mile warranty. Over 1,500 hours were spent stripping the original vehicle to its safety cage before adding the new body. From there, Exomod installed exposed carbon on the chin spoiler, door jambs, rockers, rear diffuser, and under the hood. The Goldfinger Dodge Charger also features sequential LED taillights, 20-inch Forgeline wheels, and a mahogany leather interior.
As for pricing, this car definitely won’t be cheap since it features hand-shaped carbon fiber. Overall, the modified Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye jumps from its original price of $80,000 to a radical $349,000 USD. But you’re getting a 1968-inspired Dodge Charger with outstanding performance and ridiculously unique looks for that price. It’s also prudent to note that the Dodge Challenger and Charger were discontinued at the end of 2023, which means the costs for the standard cars will likely start climbing as demand for a muscle car with the performance and sound of a Hemi V8 rises.
