Twin Turbo 1968 Camaro "MotiV8r" Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Larry Callahan runs the website Pro-Touring.com,
and his own twin turbocharged 1968 Camaro is a textbook
example of the kinds of cars the website is built around. The "MotiV8r"
Camaro features every
pro-touring trick in the book, and was built by Prodigy Customs to run as
good as it looks. Video from the 2009 Optima Ultimate Street Car
Bad Penny Camaro LS454 chassis dyno tuning 2010
Well, BP Version 3.0 is almost back on the road. We took her over to
Westech Performance for some Dyno TLC and she put 532 hp and
519 tq to the rear wheels. The torque curve is nice and flat with 450
ft-lbs of torque (or more) from 3400 all the way to over 6100 rpm.
Now to install the rest of the sheetmetal and hit the track.

You already know that RK Motors Charlotte has a thing for Chargers. You've
already seen some of the world's most mind-blowing, potent, flat-out nasty
pro-touring Chargers come out of our shop. They've been in magazines and
won prizes at all the top shows. And as amazing as they all were, this
show-stopping 1968 Dodge Charger pro-touring custom just upped the ante
significantly! Combining the best of yesterday, with the best of today and
tomorrow, this Charger was built for the muscle car fan that wants the
absolute best and doesn't want to share!
What if you could have the great looks of a Charger in a Challenger-sized
package? We've taken it to the next level not by going wild, but by
imagining how the car would look if the factory had built it. You'll have
to look twice to see the changes (and they are indeed radical), and to find
where the OEM and the modified merge the essence of great customs. Ask any
custom builder and he'll tell you that no car is ever finished, and where
one owner's ideas stop, a new ones begin, letting the car evolve.
Based on the overwhelmingly positive response we got to Maximum Effect, our
all-black '70 Charger pro-touring car, we dipped this one in the same vat
of sinister Midnight Black Metallic to give it a stealthier appearance and
let the radical custom sheet metal do the talking instead of the loud
paint. Where the original design was wild for the sake of being wild, this
one is focused like a laser now the car looks downright brutal, like it'll
bite your hand off if you get too close.
Let's start with the custom design elements present in this stunning
Sleek, free-flowing bodylines.
The front half was shortened 10.5 inches, and the rear 10 inches
Roof was chopped 2 inches, moved ahead 4 inches, and the A-Pillar raked
back, creating a one-of-a-kind look
Each panel on the car has been hand-fabricated
Trunk is 5000 series aluminum, filled with expandable sound deadening foam
to keep things quiet inside
Quarter panels have been shortened and restyled to flow with the doors.
Doors have been restyled with new body lines and a shaved appearance
Fenders have been shortened, restyled and restructured
Hood is custom-made, with a steel frame, wrapped in aluminum and filled
with expanding sound deadening foam
The rear of the car is fitted and shortened
The custom trunk floor and frame rail have been restructured. Torque boxes
have been added for strength and rigidity and the floor and tunnel have
been reconfigured, strengthened and redesigned to fit the new drive-train
Midnight Black Metallic is a custom-mixed paint that was applied by the
experts at our own RK Motors restoration shop (you know, the guys who have
won top honors at virtually every show we've entered)
Custom aluminum CNC-milled gas cap
Custom aluminum fuel cell
Other OEM design elements have been retained, however. From the front
grille to the chrome rear bumper, that's original stuff, again to emphasize
the tremendous amount of metalwork that went into reshaping the body. An
original Charger grille and hidden headlights have been fitted between the
custom-made fenders and hood, exactly the way the factory would have done
it. Out back, the unique 1968 Charger round taillights have been retained
and fit right in, again forcing you to stand back and think hard about
what, exactly, has been modified (look at the car in profile and you'll
definitely see the changes).
