We may still remember a movie about cars in the 70′s, one of which is a car movie titled “Vanishing Point”, starring Barry Newman, this project has a little tuning. In this film, Newman plays Kowalski, a man who makes taruah by taking a white 1970 Dodge Challenger and drove all the way from Colorado unuk San Francisco which is just within 15 hours. Apparently Vanishing Point is one of the most famous movie car in that era.
As the dealer of New Wilmington Dodge and a long-time fan of the movie, Frederick decided to do something really cool to pay homage to one of his favorite flicks by unveiling a special edition model of the 392 Inaugural Edition Dodge Challenger SRT8 and calling it the “Kowalski Edition”.
In his own words, Frederick said: “I met with the team and what I wanted toll Them: 2011 Challenger SRT8 392, six-speed manual, Bright White, stripe delete, Dark Slate SRT seats, SRT WP3 Alcoa aluminum 20-inch wheels , 730 Nav and SRT Option Group II …. I reminded Them That the paint was already in the plant and That the unique SRT8 parts were the resource persons already there in white as well, so it seemed logical That Could it be done. “He Went on to add he Knew That putting together a car like this was not going to be easy, especially since he really wanted the cars to have sequential Vins.
The whole intention was to Recreate the car Kowalski Used in the movie and add Some minor Touches and detailing to it, Including ’70 wood grain-style shift Hurst Pistol Grip handles and a six-speed shift pattern insert. The Challenger Also gets a special numbered dash plaque and a custom fender tag mounted in the engine bay, as well as A Few scat pack bee decals for the quarter windows like the ones Used on Dodge’s 1970 performance models. There are custom decals Also paying homage to its specially designated “Kowalski Edition” billing on the rear spoiler and under the hood, and a Reproduction Colorado license plate with the Same digits as the one found on the car.
Since the “Kowalski Edition” is a decorated Challenger SRT8 392, the customer will from be riding along with the legendary 392-cubic-inch Hemi V8 powertrain with 470 HP and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine cans get the Challenger from 0 to 60 mph in the high 4-second range and cans Achieve the quarter-mile in the high 12s. Top speed has been Increased to More Than 180 mph with the manual transmission (173 mph in the automatic).
