2008 SEMA will witness a 900 bhp package created for Dodge Challenger by legendary tuner and manufacturer Mr Norm. Super Cuda of similar talent also appears.
Mr. Norm wants to put all those power theories to rest at this year’s SEMA, by threatening a ranch of horsepower. A total of 1800 bhp from two Hemi V8s should ensure a steady stream of onlookers onto the Mr. Norm stand. The first sedan to possess such power is the black Super Challenger sporting a red stripe, air scoop and the Mr. Norm name on the front fenders. Forged wheels come thanks to Rodtana and they are wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion Zero tires which suit it just fine with that lowered suspension.
Hemi 6.1-litre V8 makes its 900 bhp heard loud and clear through the Corsa Performance exhaust. It’s the same 6.1-litre V8 found in the resurrected 1970 AAR Cuda, well not exactly but this one’s based on it inspirationally. That was the type of car whose appearance would be enough to shift traffic from one lane to the right, but at 900 bhp today it will stand up to some pretty decent and modern machinery. And probably win.
Besides the obvious weapon under the ‘hood, Mr Norm has presented the Cuda with a Hotchkis Performance-tuned suspension, in case anyone fancies himself on this against stretching bends. Can’t say who would win, but the Pirelli Scorpion Zero Assimetrico tires promise grip with conviction, while Mr Norm assures that its stainless steel brakes can out-stop anything post-2000.
