1973 Dodge Charger: Project CannibalArtist: Ben Hermancewww.hermancedesign.com
"If pure evil were a car, this would be it. I could easily envision any horror movie villain mashing the accelerator and slamming all six gears through the twisties of some dark, creepy forest. Overall, the car has a great profile and some nicely incorporated bumpers. However, the primary aesthetic issues I wanted to adjust were the exaggerated front overhang and the C-pillar/decklid transition. Next, I added fender flares to allow some seriously wide rubber under it, and emphasize a firmly planted stance. I also wanted to use the fender detail of the '68-'69 Chargers to help extract some hot air from the engine bay.
Black was the only way to go with this one. The hood bulge is accented by a satin black stripe bordered by a blood-red pinstripe that is carried onto the redline tires, interior accents, and stitching. There are also brushed aluminum finishes seen in the grille, brake vents, wheel lip, and console/dash trim.
There is a lot of fabrication in and around the car between the full-frame tubular chassis with rollcage and various body mods, but a similar look could be achieved on a budget with the right selection of aftermarket suspension parts, wheel/tire combo, and less-exotic drivetrain. Creativity is the key here."
