Dodge Charger One of the Confirmed Muscle Cars for Fast 8


The Fast and Furious franchise continues on. With every installment, viewers can expect new and souped up high performance cars. For the latest installment, Fast 8, on-set photos revealed one of the vehicles to be a modified Dodge Charger.

This is one of the cars that will be driven by the series' head character Dom, played by Vin Diesel. The Dodge Charger has some noticeable and distinctive bodywork, including flared wheel arches and a rather large rear diffuser.

The muscle car is also believed to be powered by a V8 engine. Even more curiously, though, is the rear decklid, which appears to support a jet turbo engine, the same engine used for a helicopter. If so, then the Dodge Charger will be packing loads of power – not to mention extremely loud noise.

It's unknown whether the engine actually works or if it's just a prop. If the former, then it will require a seasoned stunt driver to keep the car under control.

News of the Dodge Charger first appeared when an Instagram pic from Muscle Car Zone showed the modified Dodge Charger being unloaded onto set.

It is not a surprise that the Dodge Charger was one of the muscle cars selected for the beloved film franchise. The vehicle is a timeless classic, an All-American muscle car. Several police departments have also ordered Dodge Chargers as their patrol vehicles.
