Hamil­ton’s Mitchell Race Xtreme (MRX) is set to be se­ri­ously busy over the next year or so. Not only does it al­ready have two Group 1 Ca­maros un­der con­struc­tion, the first of which is nearly com­pleted, but it’s also soon to be­gin work on a 1970 Dodge Chal­lenger. The car will be built us­ing a re­cently landed brand-new re­pro­duc­tion bodyshell, which was the first pro­duc­tion unit off the as­sem­bly line af­ter the shells were show­cased at the SEMA Show. The plan at this stage is to build the Chal­lenger to a sim­i­lar spec to the Ca­maros, with a Nas­car­sourced small block en­gine and all the usual high­end com­po­nents we’ve come to ex­pect from MRX. At this stage, MRX is tight-lipped about who the driver is, al­though it did let slip that it is some­one who is cur­rently very com­pet­i­tive in an­other class. We can’t wait to see the build un­fold!
