Dodge’s Juiced-Up Charger to Appear at SEMA Show

The 2012 SEMA show is next week in Las Vegas, and Dodge will be bringing a souped up version of their old favorite the Charger to the show.

On the outside, the Charger Juiced will have a body-color split cross hair grille with Mopar grille badge, matte black hood graphics and decklid graphics, and Mopar’s exclusive 20-inch lightweight wheels. On the inside, the Charger Juiced will have a 650-horsepower Viper V10 engine, and the driver will get a luxurious interior with black leather seats, a matte black aluminum instrument panel, Mopar’s pistol-grip shifter, and carpet floor mats.

Dodge has already released some pictures of the Charger Juiced, and at first glance, it is definitely not a car that will blend into a crowd. The Metallic Copperhead paint job is classy while also being very cool and distinctive. Fans of the Charger will likely drool over the Juiced and get some ideas for modifications and add-ons to their own Charger. Luckily at the SEMA show, they are in the perfect place to pick up some of those add-ons and upgrades.
