DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 14, 2006--A new line of supercars based on the 1970 Challenger from Unique Performance and Foose Design will stoke the imaginations of MOPAR fans worldwide. The companies will turn a limited number of the Dodges into world-class performance machines with ultra-cool design and 21st century speed technology including parts from Year One. Unique Performance is the premier manufacturer of signature series American muscle cars, trucks and motorcycles.



"The response to our Foose '69 Camaro was fantastic, which led to an outpouring of requests for a similar car from MOPAR fans," said Unique Performance President and CEO Douglas Hasty. "Our 1970 Challenger program is designed to fulfill those wishes with a very, very small run of an even more exclusive MOPAR. Working with Chip and Year One, our team will turn a handful of these vintage muscle cars into pink slip winning, Z06 eating supercars."

The team will transform Challengers with contemporary wheels, engines, suspensions, transmissions and interiors. Each will be clad in DuPont's Hot Hues(TM) paint and fitted with a 347 c.i.d. or a 426 c.i.d. HEMI mated to a TKO 5-speed. The car will feature a Unique Performance Products rear suspension, 4-wheel disc Wilwood Brakes and Foose 18" wheels. Styling cues include Foose emblems, a custom front grill, shaved bumpers and custom hood. Each car will have a unique serial number.

"I've always loved the lines of the '70 Challenger," stated Chip Foose. "It may be the quintessential American muscle car from that period. We're adding contemporary speed gear and updating the Challenger's style to redefine the vintage car as the ultimate limited edition MOPAR."
