The Xtreme part of its name comes from, well, nearly everything going on. Underneath the custom full-body restoration — which in itself features a two-door design, a daring “Bahama Beige” and black color scheme, side-exit exhaust pipes, and six-spoke rims — you’ll find a GM 6.2-liter supercharged LS3 V8 engine that produces 700 HP.
While official figures of this model have not been released, TopGear reports that the un-supercharged LS3 engine that produces 430 HP is good for 0-60 MPH in 5.2 seconds and 130-plus MPH top speed. As this is packing 700 HP, it’s easy to assume the Xtreme will do the same sprint in around four seconds, with a possible top speed of 150 MPH factoring in the SUV‘s aerodynamics.
All of this power is harnessed by a re-worked chassis, a new independent suspension, an AP Racing braking system, and much more. No word has been said on how much this costs, but expect it to be a few hundred thousand dollars at the very minimum if Chieftain’s “standard” model starts at $185,000 USD. Few are set to be built with each based on their own customer commission, and for those interested, you can head over and inquire on Chieftain’s site now.
