RELEASE: 2006 Dodge Nitro 5.7L HEMI Concept

October 30, 2006

 

 

2006 SEMA Show by TCC Team (10/30/2006)
All our coverage from the Las Vegas aftermarket extravaganza. 

 

·     Builders: DaimlerChrysler Dealer Technical Operations and Vehicle Build Shops

·     5.7L HEMI Crate Engine by Mopar

·     360 horsepower @ 5,400 rpm and 360 lbs.-ft. of torque @ 4,200 rpm

 

This Dodge Nitro rolls on custom 22-inch Alcoa rims with 14-inch Brembos behind them. With custom body panels including carbon fiber hood, front and rear fascias are covered in a one-of-a-kind blackberry pearl paint accented by the custom purple rain glass supplied by Solutia.

 

But this Nitro isn’t just about looks. The team stuffed a Mopar Performance 5.7L HEMI under the hood. Gear slamming is done through a Tremec 5-speed transmission via a Hurst pistol grip.

 

The interior continues the no-nonsense approach with four Viper buckets wrapped in black carbon fiber leather by Katzkin.

 

Sure to turn heads – leaving lots of long black strips on the pavement.
