Mr. Norm's Dodge Challenger
Mr. Norm’s Super Challenger and Super Cuda are in full production at the 26,000 square foot Mr. Norm’s Garage facility in Hudson, Florida. These vehicles debuted at the 2008 SEMA show, and have been on a national tour since then.
During 2009 they have been displayed in the Dodge Exhibit at the Chicago Automobile Show and the San Diego Automobile Show, along with the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, California and the Detroit Autorama. Look for them in the Mr. Norm’s Garage exhibit on the Manufacturers Midway at Mopars At The Strip at the Las Vegas Speedway and the Chrysler LX Festival in Irvine, California.
Based on the 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT-8, the Mr. Norm’s Super Challenger and Super Cuda were inspired by their race-bred relatives, the original 1971 Mr. Norm’s Super Challenger Super Fuel Funny Car and the legendary 1970 ’Cuda.
The Super Challengers incorporate modern interpretations of the original Challenger graphics, while the Super Cuda wears bold Hemi Orange paint, accented with matte black strobe stripes. Inside, they feature glove soft Katzkin custom leather interiors with contrasting “Barracuda” inserts and monogrammed carpet mats by Designer Mat.
A start button awakens the optional Mr. Norm’s Signature 650 and 900 horsepower Kenne Bell supercharged and intercooled 16 plug Hemi engines. Growling through a low restriction Corsa Performance cat back dual exhaust system, the Super Challenger and Super Cuda balance tire smoking power with a ground hugging lowered suspension. Rolling stock on the Super Challengers offer the choice of two styles of multi piece forged wheels, while the Super Cuda features distinctive Hulst Customs “1320” modular alloys. All wear Pirelli Scorpion Zero Assimetrico ultra high performance tires.
