740-hp 1969 Dodge Charger ‘Scraptona’ wins latest Hot Wheels Legends leg

We only received a search at 3 of the vehicles up for thing to consider for very last night’s Sizzling Wheels Legends Tour leg. And the profitable vehicle wasn’t one of them. Luckily, Sizzling Wheels gave us some pics and a couple of specifics on the winner these days. It is really a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona referred to as “Scraptona,” and it sounds like a monster.

From the outdoors, Scraptona appears to be like a fatigued aged NASCAR with a bunch of mismatched physique panels. But that physique is in fact widened to accommodate further fats tires. It also has a chin spoiler at the front, and headlights are tucked in the openings that would’ve experienced pop-up models. Inside of, the cabin is completely bare help save for a roll cage, aluminum bucket seats, metal steering wheel and an Lcd instrument cluster.

The ratty physique hides some extraordinary mechanical bits. In the motor bay is a Richard Petty Racing NASCAR V8 making 740 horsepower. It apparently revs to 8,300 rpm, much too. It is really linked to a manual transmission, and we feel we spy a swift-alter rear conclusion, so you can swap out last drive ratios very easily. And the vast, lower-profile tires we described before makes us feel this Charger could possibly be as superior in the corners as it is in straight lines.

There are far more Sizzling Wheels Legends Tour functions coming in the course of the calendar year. The winners of every single leg will contend against every single other to grow to be an precise Sizzling Wheels toy vehicle.
