July 18th, 2019 was Fast and the Furious legend Vin Diesel’s 52nd birthday.
To celebrate, the screen icon’s friends from America’s favorite street racing franchise gifted him a Speedkore Tantrum Edition 1970 Dodge Charger.
Check Out the Moment they Gifted SpeedKore Tantrum to Vin Diesel
SpeedKore Tantrum in an Insane Restomod
This absolutely absurd vintage remix features a DOHC, 9.0-liter twin-turbocharged Mercury Racing V-8 QC4v crate engine which pushes a mind-bending 1650 horsepower with racing fuel. With standard high test it still manages a jaw-dropping 1350 horsepower.
In case you were wondering about that Mercury engine. Mercury Marine is typically known for their mastery with boat engines. This is not their first time providing firepower for a car though. They famously supplied the engine for the 1990’s era Corvette ZR1.
Built for the traditionalist comfortable with modern performance enhancements, the SpeedKore Tantrum features a six-speed manual gearbox. It’s exterior is entirely carbon fiber, while the inside is done up in high end custom leather and Alcantara interior features.
Though it looks like one of the most brutal 1970 Dodge Charger you could imagine, its an entirely custom build. Known as a Pro Touring Car or a “Restomod”, Tantrum was created at the same Wisconsin shop which produced the 1970 Plymouth Barracuda seen in Furious 7 movie.
Tantrum was built to showcase the shop’s prowess and mastery. They poured themselves into arranging the car to be a top level performance beast that absolutely thrills to drive. The final result is nothing short of stunning.

@vindiesel was gifted this car known as Tantrum for his bday yesterday. Here’s what it does when the turbos are spooled around 4,000 rpm’s. Tires spin, rear end squats and then it launches hard! On pump gas it makes 1350 hp…race gas bumps it to 1650! #dodgecharger #mopar #fastandfurious #customcars #moparornocar #instacar #classiccar #badass
