2000HP Furious 7 Maximuc Charger ExposedIf you are a fan of the Fast and Furious Saga, then you don’t want to miss this video. It gives us an inside look at the Maximus 2000 Charger (featured in the final scene of Furious 7) as described by Tom Nelson, of Nelson Racing Engines (NRE). It is a handcrafted replica of a 1968 Dodge Charger – with a few new twists. For one, the body is 6-inches wider than a stock ’68 Charger so the 18-inch wide tires on the rear look like average street tires.

The first thing you will notice is the paint job (or the lack thereof). Initially NRE had planned to adorn this one-of-a-kind creation with a stunning black hue but, after over a thousand requests not to paint the car, they opted to clear coat right over the sanded metal. Even the front and rear suspension components were custom fabricated by NRE. Tom estimates that they have over 4,000-hours in the body, alone.

Under the hood there lurks a 572-cubic-inch NRE HEMI with custom made MAXIMUS 2000HP valve covers and an Alien billet intake manifold. The Alien intake is setup for two fuel injectors per cylinder. The HEMI is twin turbocharged with two air-to-water intercoolers (in the rear fenders for a cleaner appearance under the hood).

Have a look as Tom and his camera man take this beast out on the streets for a little R-N-R.
