  • Dec 05, 2019

Fast and Furious movie franchise lovers know what we are talking about.

The Charger Maximus will be on auction at the Riyadh auction & Salon in Saudi Arabia, to be managed and supervised by WorldWide Auctioneers. This is not the first time that the film franchise is auctioning a car. Earlier, it auctioned 1971 Plymouth from the movie “Fast Five”.

This Dodge was built by Tom Nelson and his team at the Nelson Racing Engines. It is not just a famous Hollywood actor car but a beast in the real world too. It features a unique cabin, custom wheels and an all-metal widebody. It is said that a total of 16,000 hours were consumed in fabricating the body of the car and upgrading its engine.

While the Fast and Furious franchise is known for destroying cars in the movies, these cars are custom-built and this Dodge, also known as Maximus the Ultra Charger, was specially built to pay tribute to Paul Walker, who was a serious car enthusiast in real life.

Under the hood, it features a V8, 9.4-litre engine, with two dual-scroll turbochargers, that is capable of pumping out a blistering power of 3042 PS. The power mill can take this Dodge from 0 to 96 kmph in just 1.8 seconds and from 0 - 257 kmph in 8 seconds. What’s worth highlighting is that it is fully road-legal. You can take it around and flaunt within your circle. 

Underneath, it features a fully adjustable suspension unit with custom geometry. For braking, the company has bestowed it with 14-inch rotors with 6-piston calipers. Additionally, there is a GPS-based traction control system for better handling.

The winner of the auction will not only be presented with the iconic Dodge car, which obviously carries sentimental value but also with a round trip ticket to Los Angeles along with the owner-specific 30 days customization option. The winner can also ask for a power upgrade and the company will do that for you. 

However, there is one stipulation. The winning bidder would have to lend the Charger Maximus to the Fast and Furious franchise for filming the last part titled “Fast 10”.
