This Jaw Dropping 1969 Chevrolet Camaro is priced at US $299,000.00 and serves as further proof, as if anywhere needed, that no one builds a more radical rides than Troy Trepanier of “ Rad Rides by Troy” fame. Well over $600,000.00 was invested in building this incredible machine, which rockets out of the chute under the spell of a gigantic Tunnel-Port 710 C.I. Chuck Norton engine cranking thru a Lenco 3-Speed to a Mark Williams third member. Rad Rides by Troy is also responsible for the eye catching yet very tasteful designed Orange and Silver paint scheme. Based on a Jerry Bickle Racing Chassis, this car uses a complete Race Pack data logging system to insure maximum performance. This car is a custom 1 of 1 and has never seen the racetrack.

One of the sweetest pieces of motorized candy that will be served at this year’s edition of SEMA will be the Dodge Challenger SRT8 ACR, a vehicle that will follow the recipe of the Nurburgring record-setting Viper SRT10 ACR.
The vehicle’s long list of performance mods starts with a Mopar coil-over suspension, a short-throw shifter, front and rear strut tower braces, lightweight alloy rims with Goodyear F1 Supercar tires, carbon fiber hood and boot lid, as well as certain engine goodies, such as a cat back exhaust.

Dodge has prepared an extreme, drag strip-orientated incarnation of the 2011 Challenger.
Dubbed the Challenger Drag Pak, the vehicle drops its 6.1-liter V8 engine in order to use the Viper’s 8.4-liter V10 powerplant, which is mated to a drag racing two-speed automatic transmission. The power is sent to the road via a solid rear axle and a set of special tires. The racer can be ordered in Stock Eliminator or Super Stock versions.
Many systems and parts that added weight to the vehicle have been removed. We are talking about the HVAC system, the windshield wiper assembly, the rear seats, the power steering and the underbody heat shields.
The vehicle has been fitted with special parts such as polycarbonate door windows, lightweight racing seats that are six-point harness-ready, custom drag-race only front brakes, manual rack and pinion steering and others.
Mopar (the Chrysler Group’s parts division) will only build 70 units of the car, each one set to retail for a price of $85,512. Read more!
