If you’re already familiar with “Tantrum” – a custom 1970 Dodge Charger from Wisconsin’s SpeedKore Performance – it’s likely because of the car’s 2016 appearance on Jay Leno’s Garage. If you’re not, here are a few bullet points to get you up to speed:
- It has a lightweight, carbon-fiber body created from molds taken from original second-generation Dodge Charger body panels.
- It has 345-section rubber in the rear, turned by a 9-inch Ford axle that gets its torque through a Tremec T56 six-speed manual.
- It needs all that rubber, because lurking under the hood is a 9.0-liter Mercury Marine V8 fed by a pair of 96-mm turbos, capable of spitting out up to 1,650 horsepower.
Now, this 1,650-hosepower road missile is up for sale through Fusion Luxury Motors out of Chatsworth, California, with no price listed. Pricing information is available upon request, but as the old adage goes: If you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it.
Some other highlights of this very special take on the classic 1970 Dodge Charger include a custom chassis with an integrated roll cage, a custom front grille milled from a single, solid block of aluminum, and an odometer reading of just 41 miles since built. The rear of the car boasts a very cool appliqué with the name “TANTRUM” in raised letters.
If you have the means, we highly recommend picking this one up.
