Dodge Challenger has never been sold as a convertible. Simply your platform has already many years and eliminating the ceiling would require additional reinforcements which would carry its weight far beyond the two tons – is not a light car even with V6 engine, weighing more than 1.8 tons. Of course, the conversions of aftermarket are still possible, and DropTop Customs – a company based in Florida – has dared to “removing the cover” of all, a Challenger Hellcat. Do you bend your chassis like a doughnut?
The only Dodge Challenger Hellcat Convertible in the world is a professional conversion that costs 139.000 dollars.
A project is not exempt of risks. Why? Because I am afraid that without the necessary reinforcements, the chassis of the Challenger will bow as a donut under the huge torque of the engine 6.2-liter V8 HEMI Hellcat – this supercharged engine, develops 707 HP and a torque of 881 Nm at 4,000 rpm, more worthy of a truck. It is able to exceed the 320 km/h and in spite of a weight in running order of 2.018 kg, makes the 0 to 100 km/h in about three seconds. The Challenger Hellcat of DropTop Customs is possibly the hair dryer, the more radical the world.
Under the hood it can be seen that there are additional reinforcements, so that you may possibly be a conversion made with a certain head and the car does not lose all its stiffness under strong acceleration. The work looks professional, and this is also note on the integration of the hood. Invisible with the car descapotado and without strange details when we without the sky by overburden. A job that perfectly it could pass for official. In fact, the own Ralph Gilles, head of design FCA Automobiles – has given its approval to the project.
taking Advantage of a meeting of the Association of Dealers of north America, DropTop Customs showed the car to Gilles, he signed it in several places under the hood. The car is for sale at a dealership for Chrysler in South Dakota, for a total amount of 139.000 dollars. You may be able to purchase two Chevrolet ZL1 Convertible for that price. What would you do?
