CTEK will feature the latest creation from famed Swedish customizer Johan Eriksson — a radical Dodge Charger RTR — at the company’s booth (#24943) at this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. Eriksson describes this project as his most extreme to date, in both performance and design. The Charger RTR is a continuation of the radical thinking that made Eriksson’s earlier Dodge the hit of the 2013 SEMA show and went on to win numerous awards worldwide.

The Charger RTR will be unveiled by Eriksson in the CTEK booth on Tuesday, Oct. 31 at 11 a.m. In addition, Eriksson will be on hand for “Meet the Builder” sessions (see schedule below), to discuss his work and answer questions from the audience. In addition to Eriksson, CTEK will also have 2015 Formula Drift Champion Fredric Aasbo in its booth to meet fans and sign autographs.

“We think it is especially appropriate that CTEK — the world’s leading name in automotive battery chargers — will have a ‘Charger’ in its SEMA booth,” said Bobbie DuMelle, executive vice-president of CTEK North America.

The RTR features a high-performance V-10 engine from a Dodge Viper equipped with twin turbochargers, generating approximately 1,500 hp. The car also features a powerful Pioneer hi-fi system consisting of 9 amplifiers to power 21 speakers and subwoofers that is driven by four AGM batteries. A bank of four CTEK MXS 25EC chargers/maintainers is used to keep the batteries in top condition.

Eriksson grew up in the Värmland, Sweden, with a strong attraction to the American muscle car culture, primarily Mopar (Chrysler) products, with their big engines and high horsepower. Eriksson has built several acclaimed cars in different categories over the years, but it has been his recent 1996 Dodge Viper GTS and black Dodge Charger that have garnered him international acclaim.

“Johan is a visionary who is constantly looking for new challenges and the RTR is the culmination of his creative efforts,” said DuMelle. “His craftsmanship and desire for the ultimate in performance reflect CTEK’s company culture.”

With his 10th victory this year, Fredric Aasbo became the driver with the most wins in Formula Drift history. He won the championship in 2015 and finished second in 2016. He is currently in contention for the title this year. CETK sponsors Aasbo and his Papadakis Racing Team, and they are enthusiastic users of CTEK chargers.

The 2017 SEMA Show will be held in Las Vegas from Oct. 31 to Nov. 3, 2017.
