More Chrysler SEMA stuff: HEMI-powered Dodge Nitro



Mad props go out to Ray Wert at Jalopnik who has been feeding us bits of Chrysler's SEMA stuff all day long, and apparently he's not done. The latest is this purple Dodge Nitro with a heavily modified 5.7-liter HEMI V8 under its squared-off hood that's hooked up to a Tremec 5-speed transmission. We're totally diggin the extra-wide fender flares, Viper-sourced Brembo brakes, and 22-inch Alcoa wheels that fit the Nitro just fine. No doubt the HEMI can roast the Yokohamas wrapped around those dubs. Additional touches include a set of four Viper seats to keep driver and passengers secure, as well as a pair of Kicker subs in the trunk that could've easily been left out of this project. We hear there's still a SEMA-fied Challenger yet to show its grille, so we'll have to wait and see if Ray escaped from Auburn Hills with any more info.

Just found out the following deets from Ray:

Builders: DaimlerChrysler Dealer Technical Operations and Vehicle Build Shops
5.7L HEMI Crate Engine by Mopar
360 horsepower @ 5,400 rpm and 360 lbs.-ft. of torque @ 4,200 rpm
