The masterpiece design of the Dodge Charger Maximus has earned the car so much attention from the media through movies, documentaries and even video games. The 1968 muscle car already got the vote of Best Car by the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), and it actually delivers more performance than the specifications which the production design expected.
Classic car lovers and enthusiasts who know the worth of the 1968 Dodge Charger Maximus will be interested to know that this car is included to be sold in the auction event at Riyadh, Saudi Arabia this Saturday. It might be easier to remember Dominic Toretto with this car in the last scene of the Fast and Furious 7, the popular movie collection that has featured the most number of supercars for about 15 years and counting. A very obvious feature of this wonderful 2-door classic car is the all-metallic body design without paint finishing; a wide-body alluring design that shows off 16,000 hours of precise metalwork.
The one-off car design by Tom Nelson
The Maximus was produced from scratch with a Scott Spock Racing hand-made chassis that is 4 times stronger than the regular chassis of a Dodge Charger. Inside this custom-made American classic car is a complete sporty style Italian leather finishing with German carpets on the cabin floor. The entertainment features include a custom made SSR sound system, and a touch screen display which runs iOS and opens up from the dashboard along with the car radio; the convenience design experienced inside the Vintage Maximus car is its heat-proof and sound-proof technology.

Tom Nelson made the powerhouse of this muscle car as a patented all-aluminum 9.4-litre twin-turbocharged Hemi V8 engine; the 2250 hp generated by this muscle engine beats the 2000 hp which it was expected to produce and pushes the car from 0-100 km/hr in about 2 seconds.
This engine design conceals all the cable and hoses that help it function from observing eyes, so it may feel like it would not start on first sight; Nelson’s creativity is always applauded whenever the 1968 Dodge Charger Maximus goes on to perform on race track and road terrain.
The heart of the Maximus Charger is crested with 2000 horsepower
