Watch Fast Five’s Stunt Coordinator Break Down Its Breathtaking Vault Chase
As you all already know, I am a Fast and Furious stan. I love everything about those stupid movies, but there is not one scene I love more than the vault-dragging scene from Fast Five. It’s a classic, breathless action sequence and finally I get to see it broken down bit-by-bit by its stunt coordinator.
If you haven’t seen Fast Five (and boy, are you missing out) the film’s climactic scene involves Dominic Toretto and Brian O’Conner dragging a stolen vault filled with $100 million through the streets of Rio using two matte black Dodge Chargers. There’s plenty of crashing and smashing and it’s effin’ great.
Earlier this week, Vanity Fair published an interview with Jack Gill, the stunt coordinator who worked on the vault scene from the film. Right away, he answered one of the burning questions I had when I first saw the scene: they actually dragged a 9,000-pound vault around. It was real.
And that bank building the vault smashed through? It was a specially built structure designed to be destroyed. The crew laid a huge track through the floor of the building and loaded the vault onto an enormous ram that sent it tumbling through.
Those are just two gems from the interview, which spans about 20 minutes. You should watch the whole thing, and then watch the finished product again. Behind-the-scenes stuff like this is awesome.

Hellcats Drifting to 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia' Create Beautiful Super Bowl Ad - The Drive
We can't think of a better tune for this weekend's big game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
What’s more American; Dodge or Charlie Daniels? Well, you don’t have to choose because you get both in this new Super Bowl LIII spot featuring most of the Dodge lineup, tire smoke, and some darn good fiddling. Unfortunately, the 82-year-old Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Daniels isn’t featured in the ad, but his most famous hit "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" is.
Why "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," you ask? Because Super Bowl LIII which takes place on Feb. 3, is happening at the fancy Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The cars featured in the ad include a Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, a Charger SRT Hellcat, and a Durango SRT. So really, it’s almost more of an SRT ad than it is a Dodge ad.
Not-so-surprisingly absent from the ad are the Journey crossover and the Grand Caravan minivan which both, somehow, still exist. I guess those two just don’t look as good doing burnouts as the other three Dodge models do.
This ad does a nice job displaying the virtues that Dodge has become famous for in recent years, namely, hyperbolic muscle. There’s lots of engine roaring, tire smoking, drifting, and generally rambunctious driving from this trio of brutes. Say what you will about the Charger and the Challenger getting old, they still look and sound pretty damn good when driven hard.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger and Charger Will Bring Hope to Our Grayscale Streets in Lime Green
If anything, the year 2019 will be a win for car colors in the U.S.—a dismal land where streets are often a boring blur of black, white and gray cars. In addition to highlighter-yellow Chevrolet Camaros and snot-green Honda Civics, this model year will also get lime-green Dodge Challenger and Charger performance trims.
Yes, everyone, certain Hellcats will once again get the chance to be as bright as they are loud. Go tell your Mopar Facebook group. We know you’re in one.
Fiat Chrysler announced the color this week, saying that, for the first time in at least a few years, certain Challenger and Charger models will get to wear its “Sublime” green paint. The few trims that get the color are V8 performance ones: the Charger Scat Pack and Hellcat, and the Challenger T/A and Widebody. “Widebody” accounts for several different Challengers, like the new Redeye, but FCA didn’t list any specific ones in the announcement.

Watch a 2018 Ford GT Face Off Against the Dodge Challenger Demon in a Half-Mile Drag Race - The Drive
Can Ford's high-tech supercar best Mopar's drag monster on a closed down stretch of runway?
A new video from the YouTube channel DragTimes compares half-mile straight line performance between the 2018 Ford GT and the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon during the WannaGoFast South Florida runway racing event. Both of these cars have become icons since their release and are capable of 200-plus mile-per-hour top speeds, so pitting them against each other will surely make for an interesting test.
For the race, the Dodge Demon was running on 100 octane fuel, bumping power up to 840 from the 808 figure it typically runs on pump gas. The Challenger was also running with the "Demon Crate" skinny tires up front and wide Mickey Thomspon drag radials at the rear. The Ford GT, on the other hand, was given no race prep before making its passes on the runway.
From a numbers perspective, it seems like the Demon should be the obvious winner of this duel. It's powered by a 6.2-liter pushrod Hemi V-8 with a 2.7-liter supercharger bolted on top, and it pushes that previously mentioned 840 horsepower to the ground using an eight-speed auto box that Dodge re-designed with drag racing in mind. The Ford GT has a relatively tiny 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 making 647 horsepower, and is mated to a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission.
That's a nearly 200 horsepower deficit compared to the Challenger, but you can't rule out the GT's weight and aero advantage. The Ford is made from lightweight carbon and is shaped like a Le Mans racer, while the Dodge carries the weight and form of a giant brick. The Ford GT weighs in around 3,400 pounds, while the Demon packs on almost half a ton more, at 4,280 pounds. 
With all these figures in mind, how will the two fare on the runway? Skip to the five-minute mark in the video to get straight to the racing action.

Dodge Launches Festive Jolly Fast Man Social Series | Autosphere
The series focuses on overhauling Santa’s sleigh—the Redeye Express and has launched on the brand’s YouTube channel, with content running across Dodge Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels during December.

The series features Bill Goldberg (professional athlete, NFL player, pro wrestler and automobile aficionado) as Santa and “All Girls Garage” host and automotive enthusiast Cristy Lee as Mrs. Claus.

The social series takes viewers behind the scenes of the “rebuild,” where Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves take inspiration from the Dodge brand lineup to put a decidedly Dodge spin on Santa’s classic sleigh, and reveal the reasoning behind many of the sleigh’s new features.
