Gallery: Custom BMW M5 Swapped 1968 Dodge Charger Drift Car


 

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, another custom Charger pops up. This one is truly out of this world insane. Some folks over the water in Cologne, France took a 1968 Dodge Charger and turned it into the car you see before your eyes; a full purpose built drift car for the “Assassin’s Drift” team.

Alexandre Claudin is the builder and owner of the Charger. He started by reinforcing the entire body; not much of the original subframe exists. From there, he dropped a BMW E39 M5 S62B50 V8 engine into the engine bay with custom fabricated exhaust pipes that exit on top of the front fenders. The Charger also has a full Porsche Cayenne drivetrain stuffed into it. Crazy!

On the inside (once your eyes adapt to the eye-searing bright baby blue paint), you’ll find a pair of Sparco racing seats, Sparco steering wheel, Wilwood pedals and a custom fabricated multi-point roll cage. Check out the custom Winchester rifle e-brake handle!

We can’t say we are a fan of the oversized version of a Daytona Charger wing but to each their own! We can definitely appreciate the amount of fabrication and craftsmanship that has gone into this build though. It’ll be pretty darn cool to see this thing in action! We’ll be sure to share videos when it does.
