High taxes on large-engine vehicles corroborated by high fuel prices make American muscle cars a tough sell in Europe. You rarely see one on the Old Continent, with the exception of the Ford Mustang thanks to its not so muscular 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. The vast majority of muscle cars born in North America are not sold directly on the shores of the euro, but there are a few companies that ship them at the right price.
This is the reason why from time to time, a European tuner decides to turn its attention to a large-engine performance car born in the United States from A. The last example comes from Germany, in particular from Nordhorn located near the border with the Netherlands. NAP Sportauspuff Manufaktur GmbH has worked its magic on a Dodge Challenger by giving it a series of improvements both inside and out.
The first order of business was to slap on a multitude of pieces of carbon fiber, they say “add a touch of elegance to the dark muscle car.” We’re not so sure, but the Challenger with its prominent front spoiler lip and trunk lid spoiler looks bad for the bone. NAP also traded standard wheels for a 22-inch Vossen spare set with a complex “Y” theme and large 305/25 R22 tires.
A coilover suspension brings the Dodge closer to the road by 40 millimeters (1.57 inches) for a more aggressive position, reinforced by the carbon fiber side skirts and the lower rear insert. To complete the exterior changes, the menacing quad exhaust system recalls a jet engine and is finished in bronze to match the wheels.
NAP also spent time refining the interior as the cabin was bathed in leather and Alcantara. To continue the carbon fiber theme started outside, the light but extremely robust material was also used around the dashboard and the center console. You will also find it on the steering wheel and even on the gear lever for the six-speed manual transmission.
Importing a Dodge Challenger and launching all these upgrades there is certainly not cheap, but you will have a performance car that Europeans will rarely see, especially with these mods.
