When does a car become a rolling work of art? Somewhere near this car's build target! Sure, it's fully functional and fast with all of the amenities, but it's the details which sets this Challenger aside. Dubbed “Insidious,” this rolling sculpture built by Dave Salvaggio packs ten pounds of attitude into a five pound box.

When the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 debuted at the SEMA show in 2007, Insidious went as the embodiment of creativity and customization. Shaved roof rail moldings, recontoured wheelwells, custom front fenders, flush-fit glass, a scratch-built hood, grille and taillight panel and zero exposed hardware highlight the body modifications. The paint is black pearl on all surfaces, but from the main contour on the sides down it's overlaid with olive and sandstone pearls. When Mopar displayed it they used flood lights to pick up the highlight!

Inside, no surface or material was left untouched. If it was originally vinyl, it's now leather, and then some. Wilton Wool carpeting, an Alcantara headliner, Spinneybeck leather on the seats. The gauges are one-off pieces by Classic Instruments. Inspired by aircraft, they swing backwards!

Under the hood is a 426 Hemi crate engine from Mopar Performance. The cam was stepped up, and together with the Hillborn EFI system, custom headers and exhaust system, it puts out north of 575 horsepower. Our guys spent hours tuning the engine to start and run like a modern car-no small feat. Flowmaster donated the first set of Super 44 mufflers available to the car. Sure, it's loud, but it sounds great!

Both front and rear suspensions are highly modified, and all four wheels are independently suspended. Coilovers, rack-and-pinion steering up front and a Ford 9” center section out back with inboard disc brakes, Symbolic TS15 20" wheels at all four corners—every part of it custom and perfect.

Debuted on the Hot Rod Power Tour in 2007, the car met with rave reviews. Its subsequent ventures resulted in trophies! This is a first class and "Best Of Show" showpiece for anyone looking for the ultimate custom Challenger or for someone who appreciates fine craftsmanship. Challengers simply don't come better dressed than this one.

At the Motor Car Group, we're enthusiasts first. We want you to enjoy your new car from the minute it's delivered and the trailer door drops. Before a car leaves our shop, it's gone through comprehensively, both visually and mechanically. We do more than just kick the tires, though: We fill your tires with nitrogen, road test (if the weather permits us here in Cleveland!) and clean it inside and out. We buff the paint using a three-step process immediately before it's taken away so that it gleams when it arrives. And speaking of arriving, we've ship cars all over the world. Delivering your new ride in enclosed carrier is nothing new for us. We'd be honored to arrange all the logistics for you! Every car we sell, from Sunday drivers through the rarest exotics, is meant to be driven-get out there!

If you have any questions before, during or after the sale, do not hesitate to contact us. It's what we're here for! Call us at (440) 914-0000, write us at sales@motorcargroup.com or stop by and see the new shop at 6441 Davis Industrial Parkway, Solon OH 44139. We're 26 miles from Cleveland Hopkins Airport and we can pick you up when you come to inspect or purchase your car. We welcome any prospective buyers, their buyer's agents or inspectors from Monday through Friday during business hours, as well as evenings and weekends by appointment. We're car people who love what we do, and you'll feel it from the first time you contact us. Give the R&H crew the opportunity to serve you: Our passion and attention to detail set us apart!
