The car’s production was overseen by Dennis McCarthy, who has acted as the vehicle supervisor for eight of the previous films as well.

Dennis built the car, which combines “combines old and new technology”, with veteran mechanics and his team at SpeedKore according to the film’s production notes, working on “several hybrid versions” of the car.

He said in the press notes, “Coming up with a fresh version of a Dom Charger gets trickier with every new installment because there isn’t much that we haven’t already done.”

“Dom’s F9 Charger had to be something that was over-the-top, iconic and different from what we’ve done in the past,” Dennis added. “With its mega-horsepower Dodge Hellcat motor, unique Charger engine location, and combination of old and new technology, the mid-engine Charger satisfies all of these criteria. This Charger is now my all-time favorite Fast & Furious car.”
