Liberty Walk brings its over-fendered charms to Saudi Arabia, and more specifically, this 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT
There are few who meld Japanese styling with American culture better than Liberty Walk, the crew now more than adept at mixing overfendered wheel arches with slammed suspension and a souped up V8 chucking out several quadrillion horsepower through the soon-to-be-ruined rear tyres. So the appearance of a Liberty Walk Challenger SRT in Saudi Arabia shouldn’t come as that much of a surprise.
Mopar purists may baulk at the direction, but it’s hard not to be impressed with the Dodge‘s more menacing look, complete with regional white paintwork and an ‘Imagine all the people living in peace’ slogan down the flanks. Some admittedly shonky camerawork from Plus Nine Production can’t hide the new front splitter, bolt-on fenders, air Airrex suspension, a cheeky duck tail spoiler, and aftermarket alloys clad with beefy Toyo performance tyres. A brief look inside also reveals the traditional sporting buckets and a roll cage.
Technical updates? Haven’t a clue, since the owner of the first Liberty Walk Challenger SRT in Saudi Arabia seems a bit reclusive. What we can tell you though is that the 2015 SRT’s standard 6.4-litre HEMI V8 chucks out 485bhp and 644Nm (475lb ft) of torque to cream 0-100kph in 3.9 seconds. Opt for the 6.2-litre supercharged HEMI in the more ferocious Challenger Hellcat – as we did HERE – and you’re rewarded with 707bhp, 881Nm (650lb ft) of torque, 0-100kph in 3.6 seconds, and a severe case of whiplash.
Whether the lucky owner wants to risk both his licence and that new front spoiler on Saudi’s hidden road humps remains to be seen. Oh, and don’t bother trying to listen to the engine notes for signs of a massive re-tune. Some God awful house music takes care of that nicely…
