Jeff Dunham’s UltraViolet Mopar Challenger isn’t plum crazy
What does comedian Jeff Dunham have to do with cars? We have no idea. That said, his name is attached to a pretty cool concept that debuted here at the 2012 SEMA Show. Called UltraViolet, the project is a collaboration between Mopar, Chrysler’s in-house performance division, Dunham and Palmer’s Customs, and the automaker says no body panel was left untouched.
First and foremost on the upgrade list is a new Mopar 426 crate engine pumping out 515 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque under a functional T/A hood. The car is lowered an inch and fitted with 22-inch wheels from HRE that ably fill the Challenger’s wheel wells. The front fascia has also been reworked, lowered and lengthened with a custom aluminum grille.
Of course, that only scratches the surface, so we’d suggest checking out the press release below and our high-res image gallery from the show floor above.
