ExoMod’s 1968 Dodge Charger features a Hellcat chassis and carbon body

Many companies build using classic Dodge Chargers original or custom chassis, although ExoMod Concepts took a different approach. The Greenville, Pennsylvania-based company uses the chassis of a modern Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, then adds a classic Charger body — made of carbon fiber.

The ExoMod Charger’s body mimics the 1968 widebody Charger, and thanks to its carbon fiber construction, it helps shave 400 pounds off the curb weight of the donor Challenger while also improving stiffness and rigidity. The resulting design, which took 1,500 hours to complete, is about four inches wider than the stock Challenger.

ExoMod doesn’t stop at the body, though. The company also provides serious performance by upgrading the donor car’s 6.2-liter, supercharged V-8 to 1,000 hp. The update is managed by Hennessey Performance and includes changes to the fuel, intake and exhaust systems as well as the supercharger.

There were no changes in the interior. The construction also retains the stock wheel and Brembo brakes.

“Our signature widebody 1968 Charger is a modern supercar powered by a 1,000-hp V-8 tuned by Hennessey Performance,” said Rick Katzeff, CEO of ExoMod.

The restomod version of the ExoMod 1000 HP Charger is priced at $379,000. The company plans to limit production to just 10 units.

For those buyers who are missing out, ExoMod is considering a 1969 Daytona Dodge Charger and is currently accepting inquiries.
